sporotrichosis: a retrospective evaluation of 23 cases seen in northern california (1987-2007).sporotrichosis is an uncommon to rare cutaneous and subcutaneous mycosis of animals and humans caused by the dimorphic fungus sporothrix schenckii. twenty-three mammalian cases of sporotrichosis examined between 1987 and 2007 at the university of california, davis - veterinary medical teaching hospital, were retrospectively evaluated with regard to the historical, clinical, diagnostic and treatment findings. cats were the most common species affected (n = 14). in addition, sporotrichosis was dia ...200919659536
prevalence and persistence of taylorella asinigenitalis in male donkeys.this study was undertaken to investigate the prevalence of taylorella asinigenitalis in a subset of the donkey population of michigan and in other equids on farms on which the organism was identified. other aims were to further characterize the carrier state in terms of persistence and preferred sites of colonization of t. asinigenitalis in the male donkey as well as determine the genotype of any isolates of the organism. initial testing of 43 donkeys and 1 mule turned up 4 (9.3%) donkeys cultur ...201222795262
malaria vaccine our report "activation of raf as a result of recruitment to the plasma membrane" (3 june, p. 1463) (1), panels e and f of figure 1 on page 1464 were incorrect. the correct photographs appear below. in addition, the [see figure in the pdf file] second sentence of the legend to figure 1 should have read, "the raf constructs were tagged at the cooh-terminus with a glu-glu epitope (meympme) (24) for c-raf, or at the nh(2)-terminus with both the glu-glu and the myc (meqkliseedl) (23) epitopes for ...19947864993
albumin polymorphism in the feral donkey of death valley national monument, california.evidence is presented for the occurrence of a second allele in the albumin system of the donkey (equus asinus). samples were collected from 127 feral donkeys in four locations within the panamint mountains of death valley national monument, california. a common phenotype, electrophoretically characterized by a single band, was recorded from all four locations. a rare, double-band phenotype was recorded from two locations.1978717846
prevalence of vesicular exanthema of swine antibodies among feral mammals associated with the southern california coastal zones.serum-neutralizing antibodies to both vesicular exanthema of swine virus (vesv) and san miguel sea lion virus (smsv) were found in a number of animal species having an association with the southern california coastal zones. california sea lions (zalophus californianus) had antibodies to 9 vesv types (a48, c52, d53, e54, f54, g55, i55, j56, and k56). fur seals (callorhinus ursinus) and elephant seal pups (mirounga angustirostris) were tested for antibodies to 6 vesv types and all were negative. c ...1978629463
taylorella asinigenitalis sp. nov., a bacterium isolated from the genital tract of male donkeys (equus asinus).three bacterial isolates that were phenotypically indistinguishable from taylorella equigenitalis were obtained from the urethral fossae of three male donkeys (equus asinus), one located in the state of california and the other two in the state of kentucky, usa. based on results of pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, the isolate from california differed from the two kentucky isolates, which were the same. mares bred artificially (california) or naturally (kentucky) did not show signs of disease, e ...200111411723
