Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious disease of domestic and wild ruminants that is caused by FMD virus (FMDV). FMD outbreaks have occurred in livestock-containing regions worldwide. Apigenin, which is a flavonoid naturally existing in plant, possesses various pharmacological effects, including anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant and(More)
We conducted a serological survey to detect antibodies against avian influenza virus (AIV) in Gazella subgutturosa, Canis lupus, Capreolus pygargus, Sus scrofa, Cervus elaphus, Capra ibex, Ovis ammon, Bos grunniens and Pseudois nayaur in Xinjiang, China. Two hundred forty-six sera collected from 2009 to 2013 were assayed for antibodies against H5, H7 and H9(More)
The myristoylated capsid precursor mP1-2A of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV), when expressed in mammalian cells and processed by the FMDV 3C protease, can self-assemble into virus-like particles (VLPs). In the present study, nine amino acids of the 3C protease were replaced by site-directed mutagenesis to create a mutant 3C protease, 9m3C. To coexpress(More)
