Chicken Caecal Microbiome Modifications Induced by Campylobacter jejuni Colonization and by a Non-Antibiotic Feed Additive
Campylobacter jejuni is an important zoonotic foodborne pathogen causing acute gastroenteritis in humans. Chickens are often colonized at very high numbers by C. jejuni, up to 109 CFU per gram of caecal content, with no ...
Characterization of Endoproteolytic Processing of Dynorphins by Proprotein Convertases using Mouse Spinal Cord S9 Fractions and Mass Spectrometry
Dynorphins are important neuropeptides with a central role in nociception and pain alleviation. Many mechanisms regulate endogenous dynorphin concentrations, including proteolysis. Proprotein convertases (PCs) are widely ...
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae induces SJPL cell cycle arrest in G2/M-phase and inhibits porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus replication
Background: Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is one of the most important pathogens in the swine industry and causes important economic losses. No effective antiviral drugs against it are ...
Impact of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae biofilm mode of growth on the lipid A structures and stimulation of immune cells
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP), the etiologic agent of porcine pleuropneumonia, forms biofilms on both biotic and abiotic surfaces. APP biofilms confers resistance to antibiotics. To our knowledge, no studies have ...
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (App) culture supernatant antiviral effect against porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) occurs prior to the viral genome replication and transcription through actin depolymerization.
(Microbiology Society, 2018-01-02)
PURPOSE: Recently, the strong antiviral activity of an Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (App) culture supernatant against porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) was discovered. Following this finding, ...
First report of the novel atypical porcine pestivirus in piglets with congenital tremor in Canada
Premier cas rapporté du nouveau pestivirus atypique porcin au Canada chez des porcelets avec tremblements congénitaux.
(Association canadienne des médecins vétérinaires, 2018-04)
Two 2-year-old nursing piglets with congenital tremor were submitted for postmortem examination. Histopathology revealed severe hypomyelination in the spinal cord and quantitative real-time PCR detected the presence of ...
First report of Ureaplasma diversum, a bovine pathogen, in the respiratory tract of swine in Canada
