Abstract

Small ruminants are important components in the livelihood of millions of households in many parts of the world. The spread of the highly contagious peste des petits ruminants (PPR) disease, which is caused by an RNA virus, PPRV, across Asia and Africa remains a major concern. The present study...

Abstract

Peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV) causes a highly contagious disease, peste des petits ruminants (PPR), in sheep and goats which has been considered as a serious threat to the local economy in Africa and Asia. However, the in-depth evolutionary dynamics of PPRV during an epidemic is not well...

Abstract

The immune systems are fundamentally vital for evolution and survival of species; as such, selection patterns in innate immune loci are of special interest in molecular evolutionary research. The interferon regulatory factor (IRF) gene family control many different aspects of the innate and...

Abstract

Despite safe and efficacious vaccines against peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV), this virus has emerged as the cause of a highly contagious disease with serious economic consequences for small ruminant agriculture across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. We used complete and partial genome...

Abstract

From a discussion of the literature the author concluded that the genus Brucella had developed from an ancestor species comprising Brucella, Pasteurella and Francisella. The final differentiation was probably completed some 20-25 million years ago, i.e., long before the domestication of the...

Abstract

In a revision of the genus Setaria the author gives a review of the literature on the systematics of this group. The genus is divided into three genera: Hyraconema n.g. ; Setaria monotypic for S. equina the common parasite of equine animals; and Artionema n.g. for the remaining species, all of...

Abstract

In a paper which appeared in the Annales of the Pasteur Institute in 1924, the authors published the results of their first systematic investigations of the bovine piroplasmoses occurring in Algeria. The conclusion arrived at was that five types of disease occur, namely: -
