  1. Pathogenicity of three type 2 porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus strains in experimentally inoculated pregnant gilts

    Virus Research 203:24 (2015)

    • PRRSV strain KS06-483 appeared less virulent than NVSL 97-7895 and KS06-72109. • High and low virulent PRRSV strains were equally able to cross the placental bar...
  2. Expression of fluorescent proteins within the repeat long region of the Marek's disease virus genome allows direct identification of infected cells while retaining full pathogenicity

    Virus Research 201:50 (2015)

    • Inserting fluorescent proteins in the repeat long of MDV retains full pathogenicity. • Insertion of fluorescent proteins at the 3′ end of RLORF4 does not result ...
  3. Annexin 2 is a host protein binding to classical swine fever virus E2 glycoprotein and promoting viral growth in PK-15 cells

    Virus Research 201:16 (2015)

    Glycoprotein E2 of classical swine fever virus (CSFV) is a key determinant and major immunogen for viral entry and immunity, but little is known about its interaction with host proteins. In a previous study, we showed by proteomic analysis that cellular membrane protein annexin 2 (Anx2...
  4. MERS coronavirus envelope protein has a single transmembrane domain that forms pentameric ion channels

    Virus Research 201:61 (2015)

    • The envelope protein of MERS coronavirus (MERS-CoV E protein) has been purified. • MERS-CoV E protein forms pentameric ion channels. ...
  5. Fusion activity of African henipavirus F proteins with a naturally occurring start codon directly upstream of the signal peptide

    Virus Research 201:85 (2015)

    • Surface expression and fusion activity of African Henipavirus F protein is highly limited. • Restricted expression is not due to the unusually long pre-SP sequen...
  6. Peptide display on a surface loop of human parvovirus B19 VP2: Assembly and characterization of virus-like particles

    Virus Research 201:1 (2015)

    • Surface loop 62–75 of the structural protein VP2 of or parvovirus B19 was selected to insert a heterologous peptide F215–278. • Chimeric protein VP2-F215–278 ret...
  7. Identification of the interaction domains of white spot syndrome virus envelope proteins VP28 and VP24

    Virus Research 200:24 (2015) PMID 25637460

    • The accurately interaction domains of WSSV VP28 and VP24 were mapped. • There are two VP28-binding domains in VP24 and one VP24-binding domain in VP28. ...
  8. A spectrum of HRT-dependent hypersensitive responses elicited by the 52 amino acid N-terminus of turnip crinkle virus capsid protein and its mutants

    Virus Research 200:30 (2015) PMID 25656064

    • The N-terminal, 52-amino acid (AA) R domain of TCV is sufficient for eliciting HRT-mediated HR in Nicotiana benthamiana and Arabidopsis. • Single AA substitution...
  9. Generation of monoclonal antibodies reactive against subtype specific conserved B-cell epitopes on haemagglutinin protein of influenza virus H5N1

    Virus Research 199:46 (2015) PMID 25599601

    • Algorithms were used to indentify B-cell epitopes within influenza H5. • Conserved epitopes were expressed in Pichia pastoris. ...
  10. Small interfering (Si) RNA mediated baculovirus replication reduction without affecting target gene expression

    Virus Research 199:68 (2015) PMID 25630059

    • We designed short interfering RNAs targeting baculovirus gp64 and dbp genes. • GP64 and DBP siRNAs reduced GP64 and DBP expression, respectively. ...
