measles virus antibodies in a laboratory colony of owl monkeys (aotus trivirgatus).serologic testing revealed that 17/84 (20.2%) of bought-in aotus and 1/31 (3.2%) of colony-born aotus had haemagglutination-inhibition antibody. clinically-inapparent measles infections were detected in 3 monkeys by increased antibody titres. following the detection of a recent infection, antibody titre persisted at a high level for at least 240 days. although 84% of the monkeys were sero-susceptible, no further serological evidence of measles infection occurred.19817341843
host and viral traits predict zoonotic spillover from mammals.the majority of human emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic, with viruses that originate in wild mammals of particular concern (for example, hiv, ebola and sars). understanding patterns of viral diversity in wildlife and determinants of successful cross-species transmission, or spillover, are therefore key goals for pandemic surveillance programs. however, few analytical tools exist to identify which host species are likely to harbour the next human virus, or which viruses can cross species ...201728636590
a single amino acid change in the hemagglutinin protein of measles virus determines its ability to bind cd46 and reveals another receptor on marmoset b cells.this paper provides evidence for a measles virus receptor other than cd46 on transformed marmoset and human b cells. we first showed that most tissues of marmosets are missing the scr1 domain of cd46, which is essential for the binding of edmonston measles virus, a laboratory strain that has been propagated in vero monkey kidney cells. in spite of this deletion, the common marmoset was shown to be susceptible to infections by wild-type isolates of measles virus, although they did not support edm ...19989525611
