BACKGROUND Qinghai Lake in central China has been at the center of debate on whether wild birds play a role in circulation of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus H5N1. In 2005, an unprecedented epizootic at Qinghai Lake killed more than 6000 migratory birds including over 3000 bar-headed geese (Anser indicus). H5N1 subsequently spread to Europe and(More)
A novel Clade H5N1 reassortant virus caused several outbreaks in wild birds in some regions of China from late 2014 to 2015. Based on the genetic and phylogenetic analyses, the viruses possess a stable gene constellation with a Clade HA, a H9N2-derived PB2 gene and the other six genes of Asian H5N1-origin. The Clade H5N1(More)
The development of a catalytic chemiluminescent trimethylamine (TMA) sensor is demonstrated in the present paper. Intensive chemiluminescence (CL) is detected when TMA is introduced over the surface of nanosized catalysts and subsequently catalytically oxidized by O(2) from the air, and four catalysts are investigated with the strongest CL intensity(More)
