evidence for natural borna disease virus infection in healthy domestic animals in three areas of western china.borna disease virus (bdv) is a non-cytolytic, neurotropic rna virus that can infect many vertebrate species, including humans. to date, bdv infection has been reported in a range of animal species across a broad global geographic distribution. however, a systematic epidemiological survey of bdv infection in domesticated animals in china has yet to be performed. in current study, bdv rna and antibodies in 2353 blood samples from apparently healthy animals of eight species (horse, donkey, dog, pig ...201424573218
survey of wild and domestic mammals for infection with leishmania infantum following an outbreak of desert zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis in jiashi, people's republic of 2008 and 2009, an outbreak of desert-subtype zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis occurred in jiashi county, xinjiang, china. so far, no animal reservoir has been identified for this type of visceral leishmaniasis. therefore, we surveyed the most common mammals (wild and domestic) for leishmania infections during the outbreak in 2008 and 2009 in order to identify the source of the visceral leishmaniasis in this region. spleen, liver, bone marrow and blood samples collected from 86 wood mice (apode ...201526177101
seroepidemiological evidence for the possible presence of babesia (theileria) equi and babesia caballi infections in donkeys in western xinjiang, china.the prevalence of babesia (theileria) equi and b. caballi infections in donkeys in western xinjiang china was investigated. in total, 93 serum samples were randomly taken from donkeys in the kashi and ili areas, and examined for b. equi and b. caballi infections by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays using recombinant antigens. of the 93 samples, 9 (9.6%) and 36 (38.7%) samples were positive for b. equi infection and b. caballi infection, respectively. in addition, 2 (2.2%) samples were positive ...200616891793
cystic echinococcosis in the xinjiang/uygur autonomous region, people's republic of china. i. demographic and epidemiologic data.demographic and epidemiologic data on those factors potentially related to the prevalence and transmission of hydatid disease caused by echinococcus granulosus were collected in 1987 from each household in 85 villages in the two communities of yuanhucun and ershilidian within hutubi county in the xinjiang/uygur autonomous region, prc, with additional questionnaire data collected from approximately 40 households randomly selected from each of 16 villages within those communities. yuanhucun and er ...19902382094
morphological and molecular identification of habronema spp. (nematoda: habronematidae) from donkeys in xinjiang, china, and notes on the taxonomical status of habronema majus (creplin, 1849) and h. microstoma (schneider, 1866).habronematid nematodes were collected from the stomachs of donkeys, equus asinus l., in the tarim basin, xinjiang, china. after examination by light and scanning electron microscopy, habronema muscae (carter, 1861) and h. majus (creplin, 1849) were identified. the morphology of our specimens representing h. muscae (carter, 1861) agreed well with previous redescriptions in the shape of the lateral lips, origin of the lateral alae, ratio of left and right spicules, and number and arrangement of ca ...201728337680
isolation and genetic characterization of h3n8 equine influenza virus from donkeys in china.during the 2007 outbreak of equine influenza (eiv) in china, an influenza virus designated a/donkey/xinjiang/5/2007 (donkey/xinjiang/2007) was isolated from a symptomatic donkey in xinjiang uygur autonomous region, china. to analyze the genetic evolution of the new isolate, the hemagglutinin (ha) gene of donkey/xinjiang/2007 was amplified and sequenced. sequence alignment, prediction of glycosylation sites and phylogenetic analysis of the ha1 protein of donkey/xinjiang/2007 showed most similarit ...201020153940
[study on mitochondrial dna d-loop polymorphism in chinese donkeys].the mitochondrial dna (mtdna) d-loop sequences with 399 bp in 26 individuals from 5 donkey breeds in china were analyzed. aligned by clustal w software,the results showed that 23 polymorphic nucleotide sites and only transition with the percentage of 5.76% in 399 bp were observed. in reference to mtdna d-loop sequences of european domestic donkey as a control, the average percentage of mtdna d-loop nucleotide variation in 5 chinese donkey breeds was 1.80%. the average percentages of d-loop nucle ...200516018258
