Absence of renal cortical anisotropic backscattering artifact in feline chronic kidney disease
Vet Q. 2021 Jun 10:1-11. doi: 10.1080/01652176.2021.1941397. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBackground: Renal cortical anisotropy backscattering artifact (CABA) is a focal hyperechoic region where the tubules are parallel to the incident ultrasound beam, reflecting most of the beams to the transducer.Aim: To investigate the association between chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the absence of renal CABA in cats.Methods: Ultrasonographic renal images of 40 cats with CKD (stage II-IV) and 36 clinically healthy cats were blindly evaluated by two observers to determine the visibility of renal CABA. Inter- and intraobserver agreem...

Hippo signaling pathway in companion animal diseases, an under investigated signaling cascade
Vet Q. 2021 May 4:1-14. doi: 10.1080/01652176.2021.1923085. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe Hippo pathway is a highly conserved kinase cascade in mammals with the proteins YAP and TAZ as its most important downstream effectors that shuttle between cytoplasma and nucleus. It has a crucial role in processes such as embryogenesis, organ size control, homeostasis and tissue regeneration, where mechanosensing and/or cell-cell interactions are involved. As the pathway is associated with many essential functions in the body, its dysregulation is related to many diseases. In contrast to human pathology, a PubMed-search on Hippo,...

SARS-CoV-2 in animals: potential for unknown reservoir hosts and public health implications
Vet Q. 2021 Apr 23:1-31. doi: 10.1080/01652176.2021.1921311. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSevere acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2, previously 2019-nCoV) is suspected of having originated in 2019 in China from a coronavirus infected bat of the genus Rhinolophus. Following the initial emergence, possibly facilitated by a mammalian bridge host, SARS-CoV-2 is currently transmitted across the globe via efficient human-to-human transmission. Results obtained from experimental studies indicate that animal species such as cats, ferrets, raccoon dogs, cynomolgus macaques, rhesus macaques, white-tailed deer, rab...
