Surface display of proteins by Gram-negative bacterial autotransporters
Expressing proteins of interest as fusions to proteins of the bacterial envelope is a powerful technique with many biotechnological and medical applications. Autotransporters have recently emerged as a good tool for bacterial ...
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 ...
Geographical and temporal distribution of human giardiasis in Ontario, Canada
BACKGROUND:Giardia is the most frequently identified intestinal parasite in North America. Although information on geographical distribution of giardiasis is critical in identifying communities at high risk, little has ...
Development and use of a multiplex real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction assay for detection and differentiation of Porcine circovirus-2 genotypes 2a and 2b in an epidemiological survey
By the end of 2004, the Canadian swine population had experienced a severe 2 increase in the incidence of Porcine circovirus-associated disease (PCVAD), a problem that was 3 associated with the emergence of a new Porcine ...
Characterization of a Canadian mink H3N2 influenza A virus isolate genetically related to triple reassortant swine influenza virus
In 2007, an H3N2 influenza A virus was isolated from Canadian mink. This virus was found to be phylogenetically related to a triple reassortant influenza virus which emerged in Canadian swine in 2005, but it is antigenically ...
Investigation of clusters of giardiasis using GIS and a spatial scan statistic
BACKGROUND:Giardia lamblia is the most frequently identified human intestinal parasite in Canada with prevalence estimates of 4–10%. However, infection rates vary by geographical area and localized 'pockets' of high or low ...
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 ...
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 ...
Genetic relatedness of recent Canadian equine influenza virus isolates with vaccine strains used in the field
