Abstract

The presence of bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) was examined in 110 samples of bovine nasal swabs collected between October 2007 and November 2015. BoHV-1 was detected in four samples by virus isolation and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The phylogenetic analysis of glycoprotein B (gB) gene...

Abstract

Shiga toxin-producing (Stx) Escherichia coli (STEC) O113:H21 strains are associated with human diarrhea and some of these strains may cause hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). The molecular mechanism underlying this capacity and the differential host cell response to HUS-causing strains are not yet...
