Publication date: Available online 20 August 2019Source: Advances in Virus ResearchAuthor(s): Maolin Lu, Xiaochu Ma, Walther MothesAbstractSingle-molecule Förster resonance energy transfer (smFRET) imaging has emerged as a powerful tool to probe conformational dynamics of viral proteins, identify novel structural intermediates that are hiding in averaging population-based measurements, permit access to the energetics of transitions and as such to the precise molecular mechanisms of viral replication. One strength of smFRET is the capability of characterizing biological molecules in their fully hydrated/native state, w...

Currently there is no any accepted vaccine for prevention of T. gondii infection. Many studies are focused on using of various excretory secretory antigens (ESA); and among them dense granule antigens (GRAs) being involved in parasite survival, virulenc...

In conclusion, a duplex PCR assay for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of MDPV and GPV was established using only three highly specific primers. Our finding suggested that country-wide vaccination with MDPV and GPV vaccines in waterfowls are necessary.

In this study, we first examined the roles of T3SS and T6SS in different processes during E. piscicida infection of host cells, and revealed that T3SS of E. piscicida is responsible for promoting bacterial invasion, the following intracellular replication and inducing cell death in host cells, while T6SS restrains E. piscicida intracellular replication and cell death in J774A.1 cells, which suggested that T3SS and T6SS antagonistically concert E. piscicida infection. Furthermore, we found an significant decrease in transcription level of IL-1β in zebrafish kidney infected with T3SS mutant and an drastically increase...

A 42-year-old male patient presented for evaluation of nodular lesions in the mouth of unknown etiology. Medical history revealed histoid leprosy in treatment with multidrug therapy for multibacillary leprosy for 19 months. Dermatologic examination revealed bilateral madarosis, multiple papules and nodules in the abdomen, cutaneous hypochromic lesions, and loss of tactile, thermal, and pain sensitivity in the lower limbs. Intraoral examination showed purplish nodules on hard and soft palate, firm to the touch, painless, ranging from 8 mm to 2 cm in diameter.

In conclusion, we have reported a rare case of leprosy in the course of c-SLE. Leprosy should always be considered in children and adolescents with lupus who present skin abnormalities, particularly with hypoesthesic or anesthesic cutaneous lesions.
