Predicting Bull Fertility
(Virginia Cooperative Extension, 2005-09-01)
Discusses the Breeding Soundness Examination, a valuable tool or predicting fertility of bulls and increasing herd reproductive performance.
Development and validation of a negative-strand-specific reverse transcription-PCR assay for detection of a chicken strain of hepatitis E virus: Identification of nonliver replication sites
(American Society for Microbiology, 2008-06-18)
As a positive-strand RNA virus, hepatitis E virus ( HEV) produces an intermediate negative-strand RNA when it replicates. Thus, the detection of negative-strand viral RNA is indicative of HEV replication. The objective of ...
Identification of genotype 3 hepatitis E virus (HEV) in serum and fecal samples from pigs in Thailand and Mexico, where genotype 1 and 2 HEV strains are prevalent in the respective human populations
(American Society for Microbiology, 2005-04)
Hepatitis E virus (HEV), the causative agent of hepatitis E, is an important public health concern in many developing countries. Increasing evidence indicates that hepatitis E is a zoonotic disease. There exist four major ...
Protective immune response to experimental infection with Sarcocystis neurona in C57BL/6 mice
(American Society of Parasitology, 2003-10)
Immunocompetent C57BL/6 mice were infected with Sarcocystis neurona merozoites to assess the protective immune response to active infection. Using a direct agglutination test, all infected mice seroconverted to S. neurona ...

Variation in Eimeria oocyst count and species composition in weanling beef heifers
(American Society of Parasitology, 2006-10)
Rectal fecal samples were collected daily on 10 consecutive days in November 2004 from I I weaned beef heifers to assess daily variation in fecal oocyst count and species composition. Subsequent samples were collected from ...
Dehydroepiandrosterone protects vascular endothelial cells against apoptosis through a G alpha(i) protein-dependent activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Akt and regulation of antiapoptotic Bcl-2 expression
(Endocrine Society, 2007-07)
The adrenal steroid dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) may improve vascular function, but the mechanism is unclear. In the present study, we show that DHEA significantly increased cell viability, reduced caspase-3 activity, and ...

Effects of high-pressure processing on Toxoplasma gondii tissue cysts in ground pork
(American Society of Parasitology, 2006-02)
Ingestion of Toxoplasma gondii tissue Cysts can result in severe disease in immunocompromised individuals and pregnant women. Treatment of mean and meat products to eliminate. viable T. gondii tissue cysts would provide a ...
Serological Survey for Antibodies to Encephalitozoon cuniculi in Ownerless Dogs From Urban Areas of Brazil and Colombia
(American Society of Parasitology, 2009-06)
There are 3 strains of Encephalitozoon cuniculi that occur in mammals. Strain III is associated with clinical disease in dogs, although some can be asymptomatic carriers and excrete spores in their urine. Several cases of ...
