ASFV DNA polymerse X is extremely error-prone under diverse assay conditions and within multiple DNA sequence contexts. (1/6)

We previously demonstrated that the DNA repair system encoded by the African swine fever virus (ASFV) is both extremely error-prone during the single-nucleotide gap-filling step (catalyzed by ASFV DNA polymerase X) and extremely error-tolerant during the nick-sealing step (catalyzed by ASFV DNA ligase). On the basis of these findings we have suggested that at least some of the diversity known to exist among ASFV isolates may be a consequence of mutagenic DNA repair, wherein damaged nucleotides are replaced with undamaged but incorrect nucleotides by Pol X and the resultant mismatched nicks are sealed by ASFV DNA ligase. Recently, this hypothesis appeared to be discredited by Salas and co-workers [(2003) J. Mol. Biol. 326, 1403-1412], who reported the fidelity of Pol X to be, on average, 2 orders of magnitude higher than what we previously published. In an effort to address this discrepancy and provide a definitive conclusion about the fidelity of Pol X, herein we examine the fidelity of Pol X-catalyzed single-nucleotide gap-filling in both the steady state and the pre-steady state under a diverse array of assay conditions (varying pH and ionic strength) and within different DNA sequence contexts. These studies corroborate our previously published data (demonstrating the low fidelity of Pol X to be independent of assay condition/sequence context), do not reproduce the data of Salas et al., and therefore confirm Pol X to be one of the most error-prone polymerases known. These results are discussed in light of ASFV biology and the mutagenic DNA repair hypothesis described above.  (+info)

Nucleo-cytoplasmic large DNA viruses (NCLDVs) constitute a group of eukaryotic viruses that can have crucial ecological roles in the sea by accelerating the turnover of their unicellular hosts or by causing diseases in animals. To better characterize the diversity, abundance and biogeography of marine NCLDVs, we analyzed 17 metagenomes derived from microbial samples (0.2-1.6 μm size range) collected during the Tara Oceans Expedition. The sample set includes ecosystems under-represented in previous studies, such as the Arabian Sea oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) and Indian Ocean lagoons. By combining computationally derived relative abundance and direct prokaryote cell counts, the abundance of NCLDVs was found to be in the order of 104-105 genomes ml−1 for the samples from the photic zone and 102-103 genomes ml−1 for the OMZ. The Megaviridae and Phycodnaviridae dominated the NCLDV populations in the metagenomes, although most of the reads classified in these families showed large divergence from known
Guglielmini et al. (1) present phylogenetic trees of cellular organisms and Nucleo-Cytoplasmic Large DNA Viruses (NCLDVs) based on two subunits of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RNAP) and conclude that NCLDVs originated before their eukaryotic hosts and contributed RNAP to eukaryotes. While the study might provide insights into NCLDV phylogeny, the main conclusion is highly disputable. In addition to the small number of genes analyzed, we are particularly concerned about the accuracy of the trees, how much they represent the evolution of cellular life and viruses, and the overuse of lateral gene transfers (LGTs) to explain tree topologies.. Based on only two genes encoding subunits of the same enzyme, Guglielmini … ↵1To whom correspondence may be addressed. Email: chuanku{at}gate.sinica.edu.tw.. ...
Usually, a particular mutagen/carcinogen forms adducts at many sites in DNA, making it impossible to determine which type of adduct causes which mutation and why. Adduct site-specific mutagenesis studies, in which a single adduct is built into a vector, can be used to overcome this problem. The adduct can be situated in double-stranded DNA, single-stranded DNA or in a single-stranded gap, and the benefit and concerns associated with each are addressed. An adduct site-specific study is most useful when it is compared to a mutagenesis study with its corresponding mutagen/carcinogen. Mutations induced by a particular mutagen/carcinogen can be influenced by DNA sequence context, mutagen/carcinogen dose (and other changes in conditions), level of SOS induction, cell type and other factors. Thus, it is important to match the conditions of the adduct study versus the mutagen/ carcinogen study as closely as possible. DNA sequence context can profoundly affect the quantitative and qualitative pattern of ...
Melbourne Storm fullback Robbie Rosss horrid run of injury has continued after he was today ruled out of this weeks clash with the Raiders due to a bulging disc in his lower back.. After missing the first two games of the year with a hip flexor strain, Ross has played in the Storms past five matches and looked to be returning to top form, but this latest setback is set to sideline the former Kangaroo fullback for up to a month..

Introduction. Classical and African swine fever (CSF, ASF) are the two most feared diseases of swine worldwide. Both are characterised by high mortality and are transboundary diseases that can have devastating effects on livelihoods that depend on pig production (Costard et al. 2009; Moennig 2000). Although they are caused by completely unrelated viruses, the pathogenesis of the two diseases is similar, therefore the clinical and pathological manifestations are strikingly alike (Moennig 2000; Penrith, Thomson & Bastos 2004a). CSF is caused by a single-stranded RNA virus of the genus Pestivirus, family Flaviviridae, while ASF is caused by a large, double-stranded DNA virus that was only allocated to its own genus, Asfivirus, the only member of the family Asfarviridae, in 1998 (Dixon et al. 2005). Both viruses affect only members of the pig family (Suidae) (Moennig 2000; Plowright, Thomson & Neser 1994). Both are highly contagious diseases in pigs and their ancestors, the Eurasian wild boar (Sus ...

Arboviruses, or arthropod-borne viruses, affecting humans are RNA viruses that are biologically transmitted to vertebrate hosts by the bite of arthropod vectors. There are more than 500 arboviruses which are grouped in at least seven families; Togaviridae, Flaviviridae, Bunyaviridae, Reoviridae, Rhabdoviridae, Orthomyxoviridae, and Asfarviridae.. About 100 arboviruses cause illness in humans and through investigation of travel history and exposures laboratory and clinical diagnosis can be simplified. The majority of arboviruses result in simple febrile illness that is not uncommon to symptoms of common viral or bacterial infections. Typically clinical features of acute arboviral fevers usually include a sudden onset of debilitating symptoms, such as malaise, extreme headache, myalgia, lumbar pain, and sometimes nausea, vomiting, and dizziness (Lanciotti & Tsai, 2007, p. 1486). Given the large number of arboviruses there is a broad range of symptoms that may also occur including aseptic ...

What does root canal therapy involve?. A root canal procedure requires one or more appointments and can be performed by a dentist or endodontist (a root canal specialist).. While the tooth is numb, a rubber dam (a sheet of rubber) will be placed around the tooth to keep it dry and free of saliva. An access opening is made on top of the tooth and a series of root canal files are placed into the opening, one at a time, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, and bacteria. If tooth decay is present, it will also be removed with special dental instruments.. Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it will be sealed with either a permanent filling or, if additional appointments are needed, a temporary filling will be placed.. At the next appointment, usually a week later, the roots and the inside cavity of the tooth will be filled and sealed with special dental materials. A filling will be placed to cover the opening on top of the tooth. In addition, all teeth that have root canal treatment should have a crown ...
The nucleocytoplasmic large DNA viruses, are a new order of viruses that contain the Megavirales or giant viruses. There are nine families of nucleocytoplasmic large DNA viruses (NCLDV) that all share certain genomic and structural characteristics; however, it is uncertain whether the similarities of the different families of this group have a common viral ancestor. One feature of this group is a large genome and the presence of many genes involved in DNA repair, DNA replication, transcription, and translation. Typically, viruses with smaller genomes do not contain genes for these processes. Most of the viruses in this family also replicate in both the nucleus and cytoplasm, thus the name nucleocytoplasmic. There are 47 NCLDV core genes currently recognised. These include four key proteins involved in DNA replication and repair: the enzymes DNA polymerase family B, the topoisomerase II A, the FLAP endonuclease and the processing factor proliferating cell nuclear antigen. Other proteins include ...
African swine fever. African swine fever (ASF) is a highly contagious hemorrhagic disease of pigs that produces a wide range of clinical signs and lesions that closely resemble those of classical swine fever. Infection, with a highly variable virulence, causes, typically 3-15 days later, high fever, reddening of the skin (visible only in pale-skinned pigs), decreased appetite, listlessness, loss of coordination, vomiting, diarrhoea (sometimes bloody) and eye discharges. Mortality rates can be as high as 100% in domestic pigs and wild boar, with death occurring in less than a week. In some cases, sudden death may be the only clinical sign.. The disease was first described after European settlers brought pigs into areas endemic with ASFV and, as such, is an example of an emerging infection. Although ASFV can be adapted to grow in cells from different species, it does not replicate readily in any species other than swine. Fortunately, African swine fever is not a human health threat.. The virus : ...

The role of the ancestral sylvatic cycle of the African swine fever virus (ASFV) is not well understood in the endemic areas of eastern Africa. We therefore analysed the ASF infection status on samples collected from 51 free-ranging warthogs (Phacocherus africanus) and 1576 Ornithodorus porcinus ticks from 26 independent warthog burrows at a single ranch in Kenya. Abattoir samples from 83 domestic pigs without clinical symptoms, originating from specific locations with no recent reported ASF outbreaks were included in this study. All samples were derived from areas of central Kenya, where ASF outbreaks have been reported in the past. Infection with ASFV was confirmed in 22% of O. porcinus pools, 3.22% of adult warthog serum samples and 49% of domestic pig serum samples by using p72-based PCR. All of the warthog sera were positive for anti-ASFV antibodies, investigated by using ELISA, but none of the domestic pig sera were positive. Twenty O. porcinus-, 12 domestic pig- and three warthogderived ...
We describe a horizontal survey of African swine fever virus (ASFV) prevalence and risk factors associated with virus infection in domestic pigs in two contrasting production systems in Kenya. A free range/tethering, low input production system in Ndhiwa District of South-western Kenya is compared with a medium input stall fed production system in Kiambu District of Central Kenya. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) of data derived from cluster analysis showed that number of animals, number of breeding sows and number of weaner pigs were a significant factor in classifying farms in Nhiwa and Kiambu. Analysis of blood and serum samples using a PCR assay demonstrated an average animal level positivity to ASFV of 28% in two independent samplings in South-western Kenya and 0% PCR positivity in Central Kenya. No animals were sero-positive in either study site using the OIE indirect-ELISA and none of the animals sampled exhibited clinical symptoms of ASF. The farms that contained ASFV positive pigs in Ndhiwa ...

Industry insiders tell Reuters that a new form of African swine fever is popping up on Chinese pig farms. The timing is not good for the worlds biggest pork producer thats still trying to recover from a devastating epidemic.. Two new strains of African Swine Fever have infected over 1,000 sows on several farms owned by Chinas fourth-largest pork producer. Its also showing up in pigs being fattened for the firm by contract farmers.. A company spokesperson says the disease isnt quite the same as the wild African Swine Fever Virus because the new variant doesnt kill the large number of pigs that China lost in 2018 and 2019. The new strain causes a chronic condition that reduces the number of healthy piglets born to sows. But infected pigs are culled from herds to prevent the spread, which makes the disease ultimately fatal.. Many Chinese farmers turned to unapproved products to help protect their animals. Chinese experts fear the illicit vaccines created accidental infections that have begun ...

Complete feed accounts for 42% of hog feed consumption, eFeedLinks Eric Brooks noted. Another eFeedLink analyst, Shi Tao, stated that, In June 2019, nine (out of 22) provinces slashed the output of complete hog feed by more than 50% compared with June 2018. The output of another nine provinces decreased by more than 20%. Total complete hog feed output fell by 32.4% year-on-year.. Brooks said that the sharp drops in hog feed production is in line with eFeedLinks July 2019 Livestock Tracker, which stated: Since peaking at 492 million head in January, African swine fever mortality and culling slashed inventories by 7.1%. Expect an additional ASF-induced inventory fall of 20% to 25% from current levels before they stabilise.. This downtrend in feed production could explain the recent losses of Chinese feed maker Beijing Dabeinong Technology Grup Co. Ltd, which produced 4.6 million tonnes of feed - mostly for pigs - last year. On August 21, the company reported a 67.67% drop in first-half net ...
The spread of African swine fever has not only ravaged the Asian pig population, but also sent international pork prices rocketing and hit animal feed markets such as corn and soybeans.. It has also weighed on results of agricultural commodity groups due to weaker feed demand for hog breeding.. Chinas hog herd was more than 40% smaller in September than a year earlier, its farm ministry said earlier this month. But several in the industry believe the losses are much greater.. Beijing issued a series of policies in September aimed at supporting national hog production and securing meat supplies.. Eloit said the measures were adequate but needed to be fully implemented.. There is a difference between what is decided on paper - I do not think there is any concern here - and how we actually get to apply them on the ground especially in countries that are very large, which have a wide variety of production, she said. In Europe, the situation is different because outbreaks mainly concern wild ...

African swine fever is a devastating hemorrhagic fever of pigs, caused by the African swine fever virus (ASFV). In Africa, the presence of a sylvatic cycle involving warthogs and soft ticks means that the risk of introduction of ASFV into domestic swine is always present. Bushpigs (Potamochoerus larvatus) are nocturnal, susceptible to ASFV and share a natural interface with both warthogs and domestic pigs. The role of the bushpig in the epidemiology of ASFV if any is not understood, yet control strategies of the disease in areas with probable contact between bushpigs and domestic pigs would depend on such information. This study used a molecular and ecological approach to investigate the role of the bushpig in the epidemiology of African swine fever at the wildlife-livestock interface in Uganda. The GPS/GSM tracking collars were used to monitor the movement patterns of free-ranging domestic pigs and bushpigs. Four free-ranging domestic pigs and five bushpigs were collared and their movements ...
African swine fever virus, illustration. This virus is a member of the iridovirus group that causes African swine fever. Unlike other DNA- containing vertebrate viruses (except the poxviruses), the iridovirus replicates in the host cells cytoplasm (most others replicate in the nucleus). - Stock Image F016/8841
Bushpigs and warthogs are natural reservoir hosts of African swine fever virus (ASFV) in the wild, showing no clinical signs of disease when infected with the same highly virulent isolates of ASFV that induce rapid, haemorrhagic death in domestic pigs. In contrast to domestic pigs, infection of bushpigs with Malawi isolate results in low levels of virus replication and lymphocyte apoptosis within the spleen, and a relatively low spread of virus to other lymphoid tissues. However, at 10 days post-infection, a high degree of apoptosis was seen in B lymphocytes of the B cell follicles in bushpig lymph nodes. Virus infected cells were present amongst the apoptotic B cells of these follicles, suggesting that indirect factors released from ASFV infected macrophages signal surrounding lymphocytes to enter apoptosis. The susceptibility/resistance of domestic pigs/bushpigs to ASFV may serve as a unique veterinary model for the recently emerging haemorrhagic disease of man.
The African swine fever virus (ASFV) DP71L protein is present in all isolates as either a short form of 70 to 72 amino acids or a long form of about 184 amino acids, and both of these share sequence similarity to the C-terminal domain of the herpes simplex virus ICP34.5 protein and cellular protein GADD34.

Bulgarian Food Safety Agency on Saturday confirmed the first outbreak of African swine fever in an industrial farm in the country.. A total of about 17,000 pigs are fattened in the farm, which is located in the village of Nikolovo near Danube River in Ruse Region, the agency said in a statement.. All pigs in the farm will be culled, and meat and products produced from pigs from the farm will be destroyed, the statement said.. The first case of African swine fever in domestic pigs in Bulgaria this year was reported on July 3, and the latest outbreak brought the total number to 17..

When retroviruses have integrated their own genome into the germ line, their genome is passed on to a following generation. These endogenous retroviruses (ERVs), contrasted with exogenous ones, now make up 5-8% of the human genome.[7] Most insertions have no known function and are often referred to as "junk DNA". However, many endogenous retroviruses play important roles in host biology, such as control of gene transcription, cell fusion during placental development in the course of the germination of an embryo, and resistance to exogenous retroviral infection. Endogenous retroviruses have also received special attention in the research of immunology-related pathologies, such as autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, although endogenous retroviruses have not yet been proven to play any causal role in this class of disease.[8] While transcription was classically thought to occur only from DNA to RNA, reverse transcriptase transcribes RNA into DNA. The term "retro" in retrovirus refers to ...
The hepatitis envelope proteins are composed of subunits made from the viral preS1, preS2, and S genes. The L (for "large") envelope protein contains all three subunits. The M (for "medium") protein contains only preS2 and S. The S (for "small") protein contains only S. The genome portions encoding these envelope protein subuntis share both the same frame and the same stop codon (generating nested transcripts on a single open reading frame. The pre-S1 is encoded first (closest to the 5' end), followed directly by the pre-S2 and the S. When a transcript is made from the beginning of the pre-S1 region, all three genes are included in the transcript and the L protein is produced. When the transcript starts after the pro-S1 at the beginning of the pre-S2 the final protein contains the pre-S2 and S subunits only and therefore is an M protein. The smallest envelope protein containing just the S subunit is made most because it is encoded closest to the 3' end and comes from the shortest transcript. ...
Viruses in Betanodavirus are non-enveloped, with icosahedral geometries, and T=3 symmetry. The diameter is around 30 nm. Genomes are linear and segmented, bipartite, around 21.4kb in length.[8]. The crystal structure of a betanodavirus- T=3 Grouper nervous necrosis virus (GNNV)-like particle has been determined by X-ray crystallography. The virus-like particle contains 180 subunits of the capsid protein, and each capsid protein (CP) shows three major domains: (i) the N-terminal arm, an inter-subunit extension at the inner surface; (ii) the shell domain (S-domain), a jelly-roll structure; and (iii) the protrusion domain (P-domain) formed by three-fold trimeric protrusions. [10]. ...
Nucleic acid analysis suggests a very long association of the viruses with the wasps (greater than 70 million years).. Two proposals have been advanced for how the wasp/virus association developed. The first suggests that the virus is derived from wasp genes. Many parasitoids that do not use PDVs inject proteins that provide many of the same functions, that is, a suppression of the immune response to the parasite egg. In this model, the braconid and ichneumonid wasps packaged genes for these functions into the viruses-essentially creating a gene-transfer system that results in the caterpillar producing the immune-suppressing factors. In this scenario, the PDV structural proteins (capsids) were probably "borrowed" from existing viruses.. The alternative proposal suggests that ancestral wasps developed a beneficial association with an existing virus that eventually led to the integration of the virus into the wasp's genome. Following integration, the genes responsible for virus replication and the ...
Louis Pasteur was unable to find a causative agent for rabies and speculated about a pathogen too small to be detected using a microscope.[21] In 1884, the French microbiologist Charles Chamberland invented a filter (known today as the Chamberland filter or the Pasteur-Chamberland filter) with pores smaller than bacteria. Thus, he could pass a solution containing bacteria through the filter and completely remove them from the solution.[22] In 1892, the Russian biologist Dmitri Ivanovsky used this filter to study what is now known as the tobacco mosaic virus. His experiments showed that crushed leaf extracts from infected tobacco plants remain infectious after filtration. Ivanovsky suggested the infection might be caused by a toxin produced by bacteria, but did not pursue the idea.[23] At the time it was thought that all infectious agents could be retained by filters and grown on a nutrient medium - this was part of the germ theory of disease.[2] In 1898, the Dutch microbiologist Martinus ...
The Herpesvirales naming system originated in 1973 and has been elaborated considerably since. All herpesviruses described since this system was adopted have been named in accordance with it. The recommended naming system specifies that each species name consists of three parts: a first word, a second word, and finally a number. The first word should be derived from the taxon (family or subfamily) to which its primary natural host belongs. The subfamily name is used for viruses from members of the family Bovidae or from primates (the virus name ending in -ine, e.g. bovine), and the host family name for other viruses (ending in -id, e.g. equid). Human herpesviruses have been treated as an exception (human rather than hominid). Following the host-derived term, species in the family Herpesviridae, which are divided into subfamilies Alphaherpesvirinae, Betaherpesvirinae, and Gammaherpesvirinae, will have the word alphaherpesvirus, betaherpesvirus, or gammaherpesvirus added, respectively. Species in ...
Despite his other successes, Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) was unable to find a causative agent for rabies and speculated about a pathogen too small to be detected using a microscope.[1] In 1884, the French microbiologist Charles Chamberland (1851-1931) invented a filter - known today as the Chamberland filter - that had pores smaller than bacteria. Thus, he could pass a solution containing bacteria through the filter and completely remove them from the solution.[2] In 1876, Adolf Mayer, who directed the Agricultural Experimental Station in Wageningen was the first to show that what he called "Tobacco Mosaic Disease" was infectious, he thought that it was caused by either a toxin or a very small bacterium. Later, in 1892, the Russian biologist Dmitry Ivanovsky (1864-1920) used a Chamberland filter to study what is now known as the tobacco mosaic virus. His experiments showed that crushed leaf extracts from infected tobacco plants remain infectious after filtration. Ivanovsky suggested the infection ...
Gammaherpesviruses are of primary interest due to the two human viruses, EBV and KSHV and the diseases they cause. The gammaherpesviruses replicate and persist in lymphoid cells but some are capable of undergoing lytic replication in epithelial or fibroblast cells. Gammaherpesviruses may be a cause of chronic fibrotic lung diseases in humans and in animals.[10] Murid herpesvirus 68 is an important model system for the study of gammaherpesviruses with tractable genetics. The gammaherpesviruses, including HVS, EBV, KSHV, and RRV, are capable of establishing latent infection in lymphocytes.[9] Attenuated virus mutants represent a promising approach towards gamma-herpesvirus infection control. Surprisingly, latency-deficient and, therefore, apathogenic MHV-68 mutants are found to be highly effective vaccines against these viruses.[8] Research in this area is almost exclusively performed using MHV68 as KSHV and EBV (the major human pathogens of this family) do not productively infect model organisms ...
The Birnaviridae genome encodes several proteins: Birnaviridae RNA-directed RNA polymerase (VP1), which lacks the highly conserved Gly-Asp-Asp (GDD) sequence, a component of the proposed catalytic site of this enzyme family that exists in the conserved motif VI of the palm domain of other RNA-directed RNA polymerases.[3] The large RNA segment, segment A, of birnaviruses codes for a polyprotein (N-VP2-VP4-VP3-C) [4] that is processed into the major structural proteins of the virion: VP2, VP3 (a minor structural component of the virus), and into the putative protease VP4.[4] VP4 protein is involved in generating VP2 and VP3.[4] recombinant VP3 is more immunogenic than recombinant VP2.[5] Infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV), a birnavirus, is an important pathogen in fish farms. Analyses of viral proteins showed that VP2 is the major structural and immunogenic polypeptide of the virus.[6][7] All neutralizing monoclonal antibodies are specific to VP2 and bind to continuous or discontinuous ...
