bovine spongiform encephalopathy infectivity in greater kudu (tragelaphus strepsiceros).of all the species exposed naturally to the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) agent, the greater kudu (tragelaphus strepsiceros), a nondomesticated bovine from africa, appears to be the most susceptible to the disease. we present the results of mouse bioassay studies to show that, contrary to findings in cattle with bse in which the tissue distribution of infectivity is the most limited recorded for any of the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (tse), infectivity in greater kudu with ...200415207051
[transmissible spongiform encephalopathies in animals].the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies affect several species of higher animals apart from man. amongst these, undoubtedly the best known is that affecting cattle, since the association between consumption of beef and its derivatives and the appearance of a variant of creutzfeldt-jakob disease in humans has been established.200010951669
epidemiological observations on spongiform encephalopathies in captive wild animals in the british isles.since 1986, scrapie-like spongiform encephalopathy has been diagnosed in 19 captive wild animals of eight species at or from eight zoological collections in the british isles. the affected animals have comprised members of the family bovidae: one nyala (tragelaphus angasi), four eland (taurotragus oryx), and six greater kudu (tragelaphus strepsiceros), one gemsbok (oryx gazella), one arabian oryx (oryx leucoryx), and one scimitar-horned oryx (oryx dammah), and members of the family felidae: four ...19947817514
spongiform encephalopathy in an arabian oryx (oryx leucoryx) and a greater kudu (tragelaphus strepsiceros)clinical, pathological and epidemiological details of scrapie-like encephalopathies are described in an arabian oryx and a greater kudu. clinical signs included ataxia and loss of condition with a short, progressive clinical course (22 and three days, respectively). histopathological examination of the brains revealed spongiform encephalopathy characteristic of that observed in scrapie and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse). it seems probable that these cases have a common aetiology with bse ...19902264242
ultrastructural features of spongiform encephalopathy transmitted to mice from three species of bovidae.the ultrastructural neuropathology of mice experimentally inoculated with brain tissue of nyala (tragelaphus angasi; subfamily bovinae), or kudu (tragelaphus strepsiceros; subfamily bovinae) affected with spongiform encephalopathy was compared with that of mice inoculated with brain tissue from cows (bos taurus; subfamily bovinae) with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse). as fresh brain tissue was not available for nyala or kudu, formalin-fixed tissues were used for transmission from these sp ...19921462768
