Abstract

Schmallenberg virus (SBV) is a vector-borne orthobunyavirus in the family Bunyaviridae, first identified in Germany before rapidly spreading throughout Europe. To investigate the events surrounding the incursion of this virus into Great Britain (GB) and its subsequent spread, archived sheep serum...

Abstract

Background: Chlamydia abortus (formerly Chlamydophila abortus) is an economically important livestock pathogen, causing ovine enzootic abortion (OEA), and can also cause zoonotic infections in humans affecting pregnancy outcome. Large-scale genomic studies on other chlamydial species are giving...

Abstract

Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) belongs to the family Caliciviridae and is the etiological agent of the haemorrhagic disease, also known as rabbit plague. Its genome is a linear single-stranded (ss) RNA of 7437 nucleotides and the capsid is built from a single structural protein VP60. In...

Abstract

Since the emergence of avian metapnuemoviruses (AMPVs) a range of live attenuated vaccines derived from chicken and turkey isolates have been developed in a bid to control the disease. It has been hypothesised that AMPV vaccines will be more efficacious in the species from which the progenitor...

Abstract

Population behaviour in Lepidoptera is increasingly being shown to correlate with life-system or intrinsic factors. Two examples of such factors are larval gregariousness (and associated egg clustering) and overwintering stage (and associated larval feeding phenology). Adult feeding capability,...

Abstract

194 P. haemolytica isolates, predominantly from cattle (39%) and sheep (58%) with pneumonic pasteurellosis in the UK, Germany and the USA, were examined for allelic variation at 18 enzyme-encoding loci detected by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis. The isolates formed 2 major divisions. One...

Abstract

Intraspecific genetic variation in L. sericata and L. cuprina was studied by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequencing. Numerical analysis of RAPD fragment data was used to investigate genetic variation in L. sericata across Europe and in both L....
