Diseases spread by ticks, mosquitoes and fleas more than tripled in the U.S. since 2004

The warmer weather of spring and summer means the start of tick and mosquito season and the diseases they transmit, including Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, West Nile and Zika. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that illnesses from mosquito, tick and flea bites more than tripled in […]Related:Feds crack down on e-liquid packaging that looks like candy, juice boxesCDC director asks that his $375,000 salary be cut after questions raised22 states now affected by dangerous outbreak of E. coli illness from romaine lettuce

Contributors : J Li ; Z Wu ; J WangSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Gallus gallusPurpose:In order to assess the respiratory toxicity of co-infection in chicken lung, we established a co-infection model to investigate transcriptome profiles of chicken lung.Methods: RNA extracted by Trizol reagent (Invitrogen) was utilized to construct the final library (BGISEQ-500 RNA-Seq Library) based on the manufacturer ’s instructions. Library was validated on the Agilent Technologies 2100 bioanalyzer. The library was amplified with phi29 to make DNA nanoball (DNB) which had more than 300 ...

In this study, two penaeidin homologues termed FmPEN3 and FmPEN5 were cloned and identified from Fenneropenaeus merguiensis for the first time. The complete open reading frames (ORFs) of FmPEN3 and FmPEN5 were 216 bp and 240 bp, encoding 71 and 79 amino acids, respectively. Both FmPEN3 and FmPEN5 contain an N-terminal proline-rich domain (PRD) and a C-terminal cysteine-rich domain (CRD). The genome structure of FmPEN3 and FmPEN5 genes both consist of 2 exons and 1 intron. qPCR analysis showed that FmPEN3 was constitutively expressed but FmPEN5 transcripts were found only in hemocytes, gills, epidermis, nerve and pyloric ce...

In this study, a novel single WAP domain-containing peptide (LvSWD4) was identified from Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei. The promoter of LvSWD4 was predicted to harbor multiple STAT-binding DNA motifs. Over-expression of the JAK-STAT pathway components STAT, JAK and Domeless in vitro significantly enhanced the transcriptional activity of the LvSWD4 promoter, and in vivo silencing of STAT and the the JAK-STAT pathway upstream regulator IRF down-regulated the expression of LvSWD4, suggesting that LvSWD4 could be a target gene of the JAK-STAT pathway. The expression of LvSWD4 was significantly increased after infec...

In conclusion, our study provides a protocol of producing a biologically active survivin-targeting macromolecule, T34A-C84A-dNSur-His, which can be used as a tool for studying the molecular and cellular roles of survivin in cells. T34A-C84A-dNSur-His is also a potential therapeutic agent for augmenting cancer therapy.

Bruno, Bernard De BaetsAbstractSeasonal influenza is a worldwide public health concern. Forecasting its dynamics can improve the management of public health regulations, resources and infrastructure, and eventually reduce mortality and the costs induced by influenza-related absenteism. In Belgium, a network of Sentinel General Practitioners (SGPs) is in place for the early detection of the seasonal influenza epidemic. This surveillance network reports the weekly incidence of influenza...

ByotraAbstractChikungunya virus is an arthitogenic virus belonging to Alphaviridae group. The virus usually circulates in a sylvatic cycle between mammalian primates and Aedes mosquito. Outbreaks occur when mosquito bites and infects human. From the first outbreak in early 1950s in Tanzania to the recent outbreak in New Delhi in 2016 a lot has been learnt about this virus. Outbreaks in the later part of 20th century and the 21st century have proven that the virus not only cau...
