Eucaryotic Expression of the Nucleocapsid Protein Gene of Porcine Circovirus Type 2 and Use of the Protein in an Indirect Immunofluorescence Assay for Serological Diagnosis of Postweaning Multisystemic Wasting Syndrome in Pigs
The purpose of this study was to develop a sensitive, rapid, and inexpensive immunofluorescence assay (IFA) using a recombinant porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) nucleocapsid protein for the serological detection of ...
Mycobacterium xenopi systemic infection in a domestic fieryshouldered conure bird (Pyrrhura egregia)
(Microbiology Society, 2018-07)
Introduction. Mycobacterium xenopi is a rare opportunistic pathogen mainly causing infections in immunocompromised human patients or those with underlying chronic structural lung disease. Cases of disease in veterinary ...
High-throughput sequencing revealed the presence of an unforeseen parvovirus species in Canadian swine : the porcine partetravirus
Cross Canada disease report = Rapport des maladies diagnostiquées au Canada
Deoxynivalenol (DON) naturally contaminated feed impairs the immune response induced by porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) live attenuated vaccine
Cereal commodities are frequently contaminated with mycotoxins produced by the secondary metabolism of fungal infection. Among these contaminants, deoxynivalenol (DON), also known as vomitoxin, is the most prevalent type ...
Case Report: Esophagitis and pharyngitis associated with avian infectious laryngotracheitis in backyard chickens: 2 cases
Infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT) is a contagious viral respiratory disease of great economic importance for the global poultry industry caused by Gallid herpesvirus 1 (GaHV-1). Lesions of the upper digestive tract caused ...
Alternative codon usage of PRRS virus ORF5 gene increases eucaryotic expression of GP5 glycoprotein and improves immune response in challenged pigs
Pigs exposed to GP5 protein of PRRSV by means of DNA immunization develop specific neutralizing and protecting antibodies. Herein, we report on the consequences of codon bias, and on the favorable outcome of the systematic ...
Unusual central nervous system lesions in slaughter-weight pigs with porcine circovirus type 2 systemic infection
Lésions inhabituelles au système nerveux central chez des porcs au poids d’abattage atteints d’une infection systémique par le circovirus porcin type 2. Une infection systémique par le circovirus porcin type 2 fut ...
Transcriptional analysis of PRRSV-infected porcine dendritic cell response to Streptococcus suis infection reveals up-regulation of inflammatory-related genes expression
The porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is one of the most important swine pathogens and often serves as an entry door for other viral or bacterial pathogens, of which Streptococcus suis is one ...
The emergence of porcine circovirus 2b genotype (PCV-2b) in swine in Canada
Since late 2004, the swine industry in the province of Quebec has experienced a significant increase in death rate related to postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS). To explain this phenomenon, 2 hypotheses were ...
