molecular cloning and sequence analysis of prion protein gene in xiji donkey in china.prion diseases are a group of human and animal neurodegenerative disorders caused by the deposition of an abnormal isoform prion protein (prp(sc)) encoded by a single copy prion protein gene (prnp). prion disease has been reported in many herbivores but not in equus and the species barrier might be playing a role in resistance of these species to the disease. therefore, analysis of genotype of prion protein (prp) in these species may help understand the transmission of the disease. xiji donkey i ...201323954254
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
