Abstract

Cysticercosis is a worldwide parasitic disease of humans and pigs principally caused by infection with the larvae of the pork tapeworm Taenia solium. Through the use of the recently-made-available T. solium genome, we identified a gene within a novel 1448 bp ORF that theoretically encodes for a 433 ...

AbstractFull Text

Spermatogonia mediated transgenesis is becoming an increasingly popular method of genetic modification in animals. It guarantees direct germline transmission because spermatogonial stem cells are the unipotent type of stem cell and can differentiate only into the mature spermatozoa. Additionally,...

Abstract

Toxocara canis is an important but neglected zoonotic parasite, and is the causative agent of human toxocariasis. Chondroitin proteoglycans are biological macromolecules, widely distributed in extracellular matrices, with a great diversity of functions in mammals. However, there is limited...

Abstract

The obligate intracellular pathogen Lawsonia intracellularis (LI), the etiological agent of proliferative enteropathy (PE), poses a substantial economic loss in the swine industry worldwide. In this study, we genetically engineered an O-antigen-deficient (rough) Salmonella strain secreting four...

Abstract

Influenza B virus has been known to infect humans and other animals, including seals. Vaccination efficacy varies across seasons. Human monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) can be useful for developing novel vaccines, guided by epitope analysis, and can be used therapeutically. Hybridoma technology has...

Abstract

Rotavirus A (RVA) G9 genotype is recognized as an emerging genotype which is spreading worldwide, however, our knowledge on pathogenicity of this virus is limited. In this study, porcine RVA strain HN03 was successfully isolated on MA-104 cells, and the isolate was propagated continuously for 7...

Abstract

Peatland restoration via rewetting aims to recover biological communities and biogeochemical processes typical to pristine peatlands. While rewetting promotes recovery of C accumulation favorable for climate mitigation, it also promotes methane (CH4) emissions. The potential for exceptionally high...

Abstract

Mammary tumors are the leading cause for the death of female dogs in India. The major reason for the death of animal during tumor is the spread of cancer cells to distant organs. The matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) are the proteases secreted by cancer cells which cleave the extracellular matrix...
