Bluetongue is an insect-transmitted viral disease of sheep and some species of wild ruminants. Infection of lung microvascular endothelial cells (ECs) is central to the pathogenesis of bluetongue virus (BTV) infection of ruminants, but it is uncertain as to why cattle are resistant to BTV-induced microvascular injury and bluetongue disease. Thus, in order… CONTINUE READING
