Abstract

Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) is responsible for one of the most economically important infectious diseases of livestock. The virus spreads very easily and continues to affect many countries (mainly in Africa and Asia). The risks associated with the introduction of FMDV result in major...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis is an important animal pathogen worldwide that parasitizes wild and domesticated vertebrate livestock as well as humans. A comparison of the five M. bovis complete genomes from the United Kingdom, South Korea, Brazil, and the United States revealed four novel large-scale...

Abstract

PstDV1 has caused losses to the shrimp farming industry that resulted in millions of dollars worldwide. In Venezuela, it was not until 1985 when it was reported as being introduced in farmed Litopenaeus vannamei and since then its presence has been confirmed in those populations. The analysis of...

Abstract

Epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus is a 10-segmented, double-stranded RNA virus. When these ten segments of dsRNA are run on 1% agarose, eastern (Australia, Japan) and western (North America, Africa, Middle-East) strains of the virus can be separated phenotypically based on the migration of...

Abstract

Animal-to-human interspecies transmission is one of the evolutionary mechanisms driving rotavirus strain diversity in humans. Although quite a few studies emanating from Africa revealed evidence of bovine-to-human rotavirus interspecies transmission, whole genome data of African bovine rotavirus...

Abstract

In the present study, we used nucleotide and protein sequences of avian influenza virus H5N1, which were obtained in Asia and Africa, analyzed HA proteins using ClustalX1.83 and MEGA4.0, and built a genetic evolutionary tree of HA nucleotides. The analysis revealed that the receptor specificity...

Abstract

The origin and geographical spread of Plasmodium falciparum was determined by analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequence polymorphism and divergence from its most closely related species, P. reichenowi (a rare parasite of chimpanzees). The complete 6-kb mitochondrial genome was sequenced from the...

Abstract

Polymerase chain reaction products were characterized for a repeated sequence family (designated "O-150") of Onchocerca volvulus. In phylogenetic inferences, the O-150 sequences clustered into closely related groups, suggesting that concerted evolution maintains sequence homology in this family....
