Abstract

Viruses of the subfamily Orthoretrovirinae are defined by the ability to reverse transcribe an RNA genome into DNA that integrates into the host cell genome during the intracellular virus life cycle. Exogenous retroviruses (XRVs) are horizontally transmitted between host individuals, with disease...

Abstract

Background: Rickettsia species belonging to the spotted fever group (SFG) cause infections in humans, domestic animals and wildlife. At least ten SFG Rickettsia species are known to occur in China. However, the distribution of rickettsiae in ticks and fleas in the border region of northwestern...

Abstract

Virus and host gene phylogenies, indicating that antigenically distinct hantaviruses (family Bunyaviridae, genus Hantavirus) segregate into clades, which parallel the molecular evolution of rodents belonging to the Murinae, Arvicolinae, Neotominae and Sigmodontinae subfamilies, suggested...

Abstract

Background: Cowpox virus (CPXV), a rodent-borne Orthopoxvirus (OPV) that is indigenous to Eurasia can infect humans, cattle, felidae and other animals. Molecular characterization of CPXVs isolated from different geographic locations is important for the understanding of their biology, geographic...

Abstract

Conifer seeds are an important component of the diet of many terrestrial small mammals, and seed predation by small mammals is often implicated as a major limiting factor in the recruitment and regeneration processes in coniferous forests. However, studies examining the effects of conifer seed...

Abstract

Hantavirus (Family Bunyaviridae) are mostly associated to rodents and transmitted to man by inhalation of aerosolized infected excreta of these animals. The human infection by hantaviruses can lead to severe diseases such as hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) in Asia and Europe, and...

Abstract

To assess ectoparasite impact on individuals and populations of G. andersoni allenbyi [G. allenbyi] under natural conditions, the following questions were addressed. Do ectoparasites affect their host fitness and, if so, how? Do ectoparasites affect host population level? Does this parasite-host...

Abstract

Although 14 years only have passed since the discovery of Leishmania donovani and L. trópica a very large number of papers have been published on these protozoa and the diseases produced by them; these articles are, however, to be found distributed throughout a large number of periodicals which are ...
