phylogenetic characterization of bovine parainfluenza 3 from contaminated cell cultures and field isolates from brazil.genomic fragments of the hn and l genes from brazilian bovine parainfluenza 3 virus (bpiv-3) isolated as contaminants from cell cultures and clinical specimens were amplified by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (rt-pcr), sequenced using specific degenerate primers and analyzed by phylogenetic comparison with reference strains of bpi3v. the brazilian isolates revealed a high degree of genomic when compared to sf4/32 prototype strain, within the recently proposed genotype a of bpiv- ...201124031776
reciprocal complementation of bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 lacking either the membrane or fusion gene.two defective bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 (bpiv3) strains were generated, one lacking the membrane (m) protein gene and expressing egfp (δm-egfp) and the other lacking the fusion (f) protein gene and expressing mstrawberry (δf-msb), by supplying deficient proteins in trans. when madin-darby bovine kidney (mdbk) cells were co-infected with δm-egfp and δf-msb at a multiplicity of infection (moi) of 0.1, complemented viruses were easily obtained. complemented viruses grew as efficiently as wi ...201728842134
cholesterol-rich lipid rafts play a critical role in bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 (bpiv3) infection.lipid rafts are specialized lipid domains enriched in cholesterol and sphingolipid, which can be utilized in the lifecycle of numerous enveloped viruses. bovine parainfluenza virustype3 (bpiv3) entry to cell is mediated by receptor binding and membrane fusion, but how lipid rafts in host cell membrane and bpiv3 envelope affect virus infection remains unclear. in this study, we investigated the role of lipid rafts in the different stages of bpiv3 infection. the mdbk cells were treated by methyl-β ...201728654867
subcutaneous, but not intratracheal administration of the tlr9 agonist, cpg dna transiently reduces parainfluenza-3 virus shedding in newborn lambs.synthetic oligodeoxynucleotides (odn) containing cpg motifs signal through tlr9 and activate innate immunity resulting in protection against a variety of parasitic, bacterial and viral pathogens in mouse models. however, few studies have demonstrated protection in humans and large animals. in the present investigations, we evaluated protection by cpg odn in a parainfluenza-3 (pi-3) virus infection in neonatal lambs. subcutaneous (sc) injection of cpg odn induced high levels of 2'5'-a synthetase ...201020619456
species-independent detection of rna virus by representational difference analysis using non-ribosomal hexanucleotides for reverse transcription.a method for the isolation of genomic fragments of rna virus based on cdna representational difference analysis (cdna rda) was developed. cdna rda has been applied for the subtraction of poly(a)(+) rnas but not for poly(a)(-) rnas, such as rna virus genomes, owing to the vast quantity of ribosomal rnas. we constructed primers for inefficient reverse transcription of ribosomal sequences based on the distribution analysis of hexanucleotide patterns in ribosomal rna. the analysis revealed that dist ...200515817564
recombinant type 5 adenoviruses expressing bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 glycoproteins protect sigmodon hispidus cotton rats from bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 infection.cotton rats were used to study the replication and pathogenesis of bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 (bpiv3) and to test the efficacy of the f and hn glycoproteins in modulating infection. in vitro cultures of cotton rat lung cells supported the growth of bpiv3 as shown by virus recovery, immunofluorescence, immunoprecipitation, and syncytium induction. intranasal (i.n.) inoculation of cotton rats with 10(7) pfu resulted in peak recovery of virus after 2 days (8 x 10(4) pfu/g of lung tissue) and ...19957769692

antigenic variation of human and bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 strains.three human and six bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 (piv3) strains were examined by the use of 60 monoclonal antibodies (mabs). fifty-three mabs to the human c243 strain were directed against six, four, nine and seven epitopes of the haemagglutinin-neuraminidase (hn), fusion (f), nucleocapsid (n) and matrix proteins, respectively. seven mabs to the bovine strain were directed against three epitopes of the hn protein and three epitopes of the f protein. each strain was characterized in elisa an ...19901695673
the bovine paranasal sinuses: bacterial flora, epithelial expression of nitric oxide and potential role in the in-herd persistence of respiratory disease pathogens.the bovine paranasal sinuses are a group of complex cavernous air-filled spaces, lined by respiratory epithelium, the exact function of which is unclear. while lesions affecting these sinuses are occasionally reported in cattle, their microbial flora has not been defined. furthermore, given that the various bacterial and viral pathogens causing bovine respiratory disease (brd) persist within herds, we speculated that the paranasal sinuses may serve as a refuge for such infectious agents. the par ...201728282443
bovine parainfluenza-3 virus selectively depletes a calcium-independent, phospholipid-dependent protein kinase c and inhibits superoxide anion generation in bovine alveolar macrophages.bovine parainfluenza-3 (pi-3) virus inhibits oxygen-dependent bacterial killing by phagocytes, a key pulmonary defense, thus predisposing the host to intrapulmonary bacterial superinfection. pi-3 virus inhibited opsonized zymosan or pma-activated superoxide anion (o2-) generation in bovine alveolar macrophages. the respiratory virus influenza also inhibits o2- generation by phagocytes, however, the mechanisms(s) of viral inhibition differs from pi-3. pi-3 did not trigger o2- generation before in ...19948027547
[Diagnosis of bovine viral respiratory diseases].Enzootic bronchopneumonia (EBP) is an infectious, multifactorial respiratory disease of cattle. Different viruses may be involved in its pathogenesis. In this study an adapted method of endoscopic bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) of caudal parts of the right cranial lung lobe was established and evaluated. The obtained bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) served as template for the detection of BRSV, BPIV-3 and BCoV specific nucleic acids by RT-PCR. BALF samples of 44 cattle affected with respiratory ...201121971671
immunogenicity of bovine parainfluenza type 3 virus proteins encapsulated in nanoparticle vaccines, following intranasal administration to mice.stimulation of long lasting, protective immunity to respiratory viruses is often difficult to achieve with conventional respiratory vaccines. polymeric nanoparticles, incorporating viral proteins have been shown to offer sustained release of antigen, with consequent prolongued stimulation of the respiratory immune system. in this paper the efficacy of two nanoparticle vaccines (poly-lactide-co-glycolide, plga; polymethylmethacrylate, pmma), incorporating proteins of bovine parainfluenza type 3 v ...200312589745
