Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 viruses were introduced to Hungary during 2006-2007 in three separate waves. This study aimed at determining the full-length genomic coding regions of the index strains from these epizootics in order to: (i) understand the phylogenetic relationship to other European H5N1 isolates, (ii) elucidate the possible(More)
The 2006 epidemic due to highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV) subtype H5N1 in Hungary caused the most severe losses in waterfowl which were, according to the literature at the time, supposed to be the most resistant to this pathogen. The presence of pathological lesions and the amount of viral antigen were quantified by gross pathology,(More)
Two low pathogenic (LP) avian influenza virus strains, A/mallard/Hungary/19616/07 (H3N8) and A/mute swan/Hungary/5973/07 (H7N7), isolated as part of the National Surveillance Program in Hungary, were fully sequenced and characterized. The two viruses showed the closest phylogenetic relationship regarding their acidic polymerase genes. The H7N7 Hungarian(More)
Yeasts can advantageously be utilized for the production of the 17beta-hydroxy-derivative, from 3-methoxy-8,14-seco-1,3,5(10),9(11)-estratetraene-14,17-dione (14,17-dione) while 14alpha-hydroxy and 14alpha,17beta-dihydroxy-derivatives are also formed. The biochemical properties of yeasts' enzymes responsible for the formation of the two(More)
