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)

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..

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.. Junior Langi will replace Ross at the back and Fijian flyer Semi Tadulala comes back in to the side on the wing.. "Robbie has a disc injury in his lower back and at this stage it looks like hell be out for a month," Storm doctor Greg Hickey said.. "We are awaiting a review by a specialist later in the week and well be monitoring his progress closely in that time.". Ross back injury was first sighted in 2001 when scans revealed the initial signs of a bulging disc; this latest occurrence is believed to be significantly worse..

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 ...

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 ...
