In this study, no difference was found between the presence of C.psittaci in pigeon droppings and season. In addition when the sequence analysis of the isolated samples were compared with the World database; all isolates were found to be 100% genotype B and 99% genotype E. In this study, the sequence analysis of the ompA gene of C.psittaci from domestic pigeon feces was determined for the first time in Turkey. Although the presence of C.psittaci in domestic pigeons is low, it is a zoonotic bacterium and is important for the public health. PMID: 32050885 [PubMed - in process]

It can affect all age groups of birds. The toll-like receptors (TLRs) are a major class of innate immune pattern recognition receptors that have a key role in immune response and defense against various infections.The TLRs are essential for initiation o...

Abstract Infection with a novel species of the genus Coxiella was first described in 3 Swainson's Blue Mountain Rainbow Lorikeets from a zoological collection, and days later in a group of seven other psittacine birds and a toucan. We provide an update on coxiellosis in 9 additional psittacines, and two non-psittacines. Psittacines originated in New England, the mid Atlantic, the Midwest, the South and the Northwest. Psittacines most commonly had lesions in the brain, spleen, liver, and lungs, consisting of meningoencephalitis, hepatosplenomegaly, and interstitial pneumonia. Lesions contained histiocytic infiltrat...

However, the lacks of efficient ECL emitter and anti-interference ability limit its clinical application. Here, a sensitive ECL immunosensor was proposed for H9N2 avian influenza virus (H9N2 AIV) detection using functional silica nanospheres as signal carriers and magnetic nanobeads (MBs) as capture carriers. Functional silica nanospheres were prepared ...

In December 2017, an influenza A(H9N2) virus (B51) was isolated from migratory waterfowl in Hubei Province, China. Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that B51 is a novel reassortant influenza virus containing segments from human H7N4 virus and North American wild bird influenza viruses. This suggest that B51 has undergone multiple reassortment events.
