Abstract

Serious outbreaks of bluetongue, an arbovirus of domestic and wild ruminants caused by bluetongue virus serotypes (BTV), have occurred around the world. More than 27 distinct serotypes are recognized throughout the world. A new virus, BTV-25 (Toggenburg orbivirus [TOV]), was first detected in...

Abstract

O-GlcNAc transferase gene (OGT) was considered as the sole rate-limiting enzyme in the O-GlcNAc modification. In the present study, the OGT gene of hybrid grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus ♀ × E. lanceolatus ♂) was cloned and characterized, and its expression in response to dietary carbohydrate...

Abstract

Glioma is the second most common intracranial neoplasia in dogs, but the pathogenic mechanisms remain unclear. In humans, isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) is frequently mutated in gliomas. Although almost all human IDH1 mutations have been identified as involving the Arg132 codon, few studies have ...

Abstract

In the present study, the function of a novel ORF6 gene in the PCV2 genome was determined and functionally analyzed in vitro. ORF6 expression was demonstrated by indirect immunofluorescence in PCV2-infected cells. The antibody against ORF6 was detected in PCV2-infected pigs. The start codon of ORF6 ...

Abstract

The collaboration project VASIB aims at reducing the antibiotic consumption in pig production by integrating information from consulting expertise in clinical inspection, hygiene, epidemiology, microbiology and pharmacology. In this VASIB subproject, we investigated the antimicrobial susceptibility ...

Abstract

Aims: Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are considered the prime source of cancer recurrence, metastasis, and progression and represent important targets for developing novel anticancer agents and therapeutic strategies. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of treating breast CSCs with the...

Abstract

Like most seasonal domesticated species, sheep are short-day breeders, which means that the reproduction axis is activated by short days. The annual photoperiodic cycle affects the amount of daylength information that is transmitted to the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis by regulating...

Abstract

Somatic cell nuclear transfer is a valuable technique for the generation of genetically engineered animals, however, the efficiency of cloning in mammalian species is low (1-3%). Differentiated somatic cells commonly used in nuclear transfer utilize the tricarboxylic acid cycle and cellular...

Abstract

The full-length complementary DNA of two genes related to vertebrate albinism, the tyrosinase gene tyr and tyrosinase-related protein 1 gene tyrp1, were cloned and analysed from normal and albino yellow catfish Tachysurus fulvidraco. The open reading frames (ORF) of tyr and tyrp1 encode putative...
