prevalence of antibodies to siv in baboons in their native habitat.we have documented rare infection of baboons in their native habitat with simian immunodeficiency virus (siv). of 124 sera collected from yellow baboons in central tanzania, two gave high readings by sivagm elisa (greater than 1.0) and moderate by sivmac elisa (0.5-1.0). these two sera gave strong reactions to the major sivagm proteins, including gp130, by western blot analysis; their reactivity to sivmac protein was considerably weaker. similar testing of 155 sera from olive baboons of ethiopia ...19892543434
prevalence of antibodies against simian immunodeficiency virus (siv) and simian t-lymphotropic virus (stlv) in a colony of non-human primates in kenya, east africa.sera (165 samples in 1988 and 66, follow-up samples in 1989) were collected from olive baboons, african green monkeys, syke's monkeys and grey mangabeys kept in a semi-free, breeding colony at the institute of primate research (ipr) in nairobi, kenya. the levels of antibodies to simian t-lymphotropic virus (stlv) or simian immunodeficiency virus (siv), and the reactivity patterns of positive sera to various lentivirus subgroup antigens, were then determined. the results of tests using enzyme-imm ...19968729629
serological detection of adenoviruses in non-human primates maintained in a colony in kenya.adenoviruses are known to cause several human diseases including acute febrile respiratory syndromes, epidemic conjunctivitis and gastroenteritis. these diseases associated with adenovirus infection affect adults and are usually more severe in infants and children. forty-seven human adenoviruses serotypes have so far been identified adenovirus. the diversity of these viruses has delayed progress on vaccine development due to difficulties in identifying appropriate vaccine targets. to date, limit ...200516167712
human endogenous retrovirus-r (erv 3) env-like antigens expressed in baboon testes and epididymides.a substantial component of the vertebrate genome comprise of retrovirus-related sequences named as endogenous retroviruses (ervs). the role of these erv-related sequences in the biological processes of the host species is still unknown. however, they have been associated with tumourigenesis, autoimmune diseases and placental morphogenesis in primates.200316167743
