molecular characterization of viral g gene in emerging and re-emerging areas of rabies in china, 2007 to recent years (2007 to 2011), although the overall number of rabies cases in china has decreased, there is evidence of emerging or re-emerging cases in regions without previous rabies cases or with low incidence of rabies. to investigate the origin and the factors affecting the spread of rabies in china, specimens were collected from 2007 to 2011 from provinces with emerging and re-emerging cases and tested for the presence of the rabies virus. positive specimens were combined with sequences f ...201222684474
characterization of the biological properties and complete genome sequence analysis of a cattle-derived rabies virus isolate from the guangxi province of southern this study, a street rabies virus isolate, gxhxn, was obtained from the brain of one rabid cattle in guangxi province of southern china. to characterize the biological properties of gxhxn, we first evaluated its pathogenicity using 4-week-old adult mice. gxhxn was highly pathogenic with a short incubation period and course of disease. its ld50 of 10(-6.86)/ml is significantly higher than the ld50 of 10(-5.19)/ml of gxn119, a dog-derived rabies virus isolate. it also displayed a higher neurotr ...201425142164
