Abstract

Porcine astroviruses (PAstVs), are widely distributed viruses that are highly prevalent in swine herds. In this study, a novel type 4 porcine astrovirus strain (designated as PAstV4/Tianjin/2018) was identified in a fecal sample from a diarrheal piglet in Tianjin, China and its complete genomic...

Abstract

Adiponectin (APN) is an important cytokine secreted by fat cells that is responsible for regulating numerous biological functions. However, the APN gene in lamprey and its precise function remain unidentified. In this study, the full-length cDNA sequence of L-APN was cloned, and it encoded a...

Abstract

Circoviruses (family Circoviridae) are small, non-enveloped viruses that have short, single-stranded DNA genomes. Circovirus sequences are frequently recovered in metagenomic investigations, indicating that these viruses are widespread, yet they remain relatively poorly understood. Endogenous...

Abstract

Background: Vertebrate genomes contain a record of retroviruses that invaded the germlines of ancestral hosts and are passed to offspring as endogenous retroviruses (ERVs). ERVs can impact host function since they contain the necessary sequences for expression within the host. Dogs are an important ...

Abstract

Aquaporins (Aqps) are a class of water channel proteins that play key roles in many physiological functions and cellular processes. Here, we analyzed 166 putative Aqp genes in 12 fish species and divided them into four groups. Gene organization and motif distribution analyses suggested potentially...

Abstract

The stingless bee Melipona bicolor is the only bee in which true polygyny occurs. Its mitochondrial genome was first sequenced in 2008, but it was incomplete and no information about its transcription was known. We combined short and long reads of M. bicolor DNA with RNASeq data to obtain insights...

Abstract

In this study, we determined almost all of the genome sequence of minute virus of canines (MVC) strain CDK47/2017 and performed phylogenetic analysis with this isolate and other MVC isolates. The genome of CDK47/2017 has the following characteristics: (1) The amino acid sequence of the NS1 protein...

Abstract

Introduction of animal group A rotavirus (RVA) gene segments into the human RVA population is a major factor shaping the genetic landscape of human RVA strains. The VP6 and NSP4 genes of 74 G/P-genotyped RVA isolates collected in Rawalpindi during 2010 were analyzed, revealing the presence of VP6...

Abstract

PCR diagnostics are often the first line of laboratory diagnostics and are regularly designed to either differentiate between or detect all pathogen variants of a family, genus or species. The ideal PCR test detects all variants of the target pathogen, including newly discovered and emerging...

Abstract

Avian coronaviruses (ACoVs) are continuously evolving and causing serious economic consequences in the poultry industry and around the globe. Owing to their extensive genetic diversity and high mutation rates, controlling ACoVs has become a challenge. In this context, the potential contribution of...
