Diagnosis of malignant catarrhal fever by PCR using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues. (1/123)

A previously described polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay (amplification of a 238-bp fragment of ovine herpesvirus 2 [OHV-2] genomic DNA) for diagnosis of sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) was adapted for use on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues. Variables affecting its use were examined. Archived tissues from cattle, white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), and bison (Bison bison) diagnosed with MCF by clinical signs or histologic lesions were obtained from 2 veterinary diagnostic laboratories. Tissues from healthy animals and from animals diagnosed with other common bovine viral diseases were examined as controls. A total of 86 blocks from 37 suspect MCF cases were examined. Forty-one blocks from healthy animals and animals with unrelated viral diseases were examined as controls. The assay was specific for sheep-associated MCF and did not yield false-positive signals from healthy animals or from cases of infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, bovine virus diarrhea, mucosal disease, or parainfluenza-3 virus infection. A wide variety of tissues were suitable substrates, including spleen, lymph node, intestine, brain, lung, and kidney. Extracted DNA provided a more suitable target than did unextracted tissue lysate. The highest levels of viral DNA were present in lymphoid organs and intestine, but the data indicate that in acute clinical cases, most organs contain sufficient viral DNA to serve as a suitable diagnostic specimen. Fixation of 0.5-cm3 blocks of tissue in 10% neutral buffered formalin was deleterious to the target DNA, and PCR signals progressively diminished after fixation for >45 days. Detection of genomic DNA of OHV-2 by PCR was successful for archived tissues that were 15 years old.  (+info)

Demodicosis in an American bison. (2/123)

An 18-month-old, male American bison (Bison bison) was presented with 7- to 9-mm size nodules periorbital, perineal, and on the ventral surface of the tail. Demodex spp. were identified from the exudate by microscopic examination. Examination 6 mo later revealed that the infestation had nearly cleared without treatment.  (+info)

Pasteurellaceae isolated from tonsillar samples of commercially-reared American bison (Bison bison). (3/123)

As commercial producers of American bison (Bison bison) become more numerous, concerns relative to bison health management increase. Since loss due to respiratory disease associated with Pasteurella and related Pasteurellaceae is a major concern for cattle producers, a study was conducted to determine what types of Pasteurellaceae are carried by bison to evaluate the potential of pneumonic pasteurellosis in bison herds where management practices are comparable to those used for cattle. Tonsillar biopsies, collected in May (n = 29) and August (n = 25) 1997 from 24- to 30-month-old bison bulls, at the time of slaughter were cultured for Pasteurellaceae. Pasteurella spp. were isolated from all the samples collected in May. These included isolates identified as P. haemolytica, trehalosi, testudinis, and multocida subsp. multocida a and multocida b. Actinobacillus spp. and Haemophilus somnus were also isolated from some samples. Pasteurella spp., haemolytica, trehalosi, and multocida subsp. multocida a, multocida b and septica, plus 2 nonspeciated indole-positive biotypes, U2 and U16, were isolated from the second group of tonsil samples. Most of these organisms, including P. haemolytica, P. multocida subsp., and H. somnus are associated with disease in domestic livestock and should be regarded as potential pathogens for bison, particularly in animals which become stressed by management practices commonly used with cattle such as herding, crowding, and shipping.  (+info)

Characterization of putative Haemophilus somnus isolates from tonsils of American bison (Bison bison). (4/123)

Three Haemophilus somnus isolates (2a, 3a, and 27b) and one H. somnus-like (13b) isolate from tonsils of commercially reared American bison were compared with 2 known H. somnus isolates from cattle, namely, 2336, shown to cause respiratory disease, and 129Pt, from the prepuce of an asymptomatic bull. All H. somnus isolates, but not the H. somnus-like isolate, required CO2 for growth. Biochemical utilization profiles were identical for bison and bovine H. somnus isolates with the exception of alpha-fucosidase production by isolate 3a. Isolate 27a varied from 2a, 2336 and 129Pt by hemolysis of bovine erythrocytes. Isolate 13b hemolyzed sheep but not bovine or bison erythrocytes and varied from other isolates in biochemical utilization tests. Outer membrane protein profiles of 2a, 3a and 27a were almost identical with those of bovine isolate 2336 and similar to that of 129Pt, but quite different from that of 13b. Western blots of bison isolates were similar to that of the virulent bovine 2336 isolate, including detection of high molecular mass antigens above 100 kDa and the 76 kDa antigens associated with bovine IgG2 Fc binding characteristic of virulent strains, as well as antigens of approximately 78, 60 and 40 kDa. Producers and veterinarians should be aware that H. somnus may be carried by bison and may have potential for causing diseases in bison similar to those described in cattle and sheep.  (+info)

Genetic diversity of pestiviruses: identification of novel groups and implications for classification. (5/123)

The complete Npro coding sequences were determined for 16 pestiviruses isolated from cattle, pig, and several wild ruminant species including reindeer, bison, deer, and bongo. Phylogenetic analysis enabled the segregation of pestiviruses into the established species bovine viral diarrhea virus-1 (BVDV-1), BVDV-2, border disease virus (BDV), and classical swine fever virus (CSFV). For BVDV-1 five distinct subgroups were identified, while BVDV-2, BDV, and CSFV were each subdivided into two subgroups. The virus isolates from bongo and deer as well as one porcine virus isolate belong to BVDV-1. Interestingly, the isolates from reindeer and bison are distinct from the established pestivirus species. The Npro sequences from these two viruses are more similar to BDV than to the other pestivirus species. Calculation of the pairwise evolutionary distances allowed a clear separation of the categories species, subgroup, and isolate only when the reindeer/bison viruses were considered as members of an additional pestivirus species. Furthermore, the entire E2 coding sequences of a representative set of virus isolates covering all recognized species and subgroups were studied. Segregation of pestiviruses based on the E2 region was identical with that obtained with the N(pro) sequences.  (+info)

Anesthesia of wood bison with medetomidine-zolazepam/tiletamine and xylazine-zolazepam/tiletamine combinations. (6/123)

This study was designed to evaluate 2 combinations for immobilization of bison. Seven wood bison received 1.5 mg/kg body weight (BW) of xylazine HCl + 1.5 mg/kg BW of zolazepam HCl and 1.5 mg/kg BW of tiletamine HCl on one occasion. The bison received 60 micrograms/kg BW of medetomidine HCl + 0.6 mg/kg BW of zolazepam HCl and 0.6 mg/kg BW of tiletamine HCL on another occasion. Xylazine was antagonized with 3 mg/kg BW of tolazoline HCl and medetomidine HCl was antagonized with 180 micrograms/kg (BW) of atipamezole HCl. Temporal characteristics of immobilization and physiological effects (acid-base status, thermoregulatory, cardiovascular, and respiratory effects) of the drug combinations were compared. Induction was significantly faster with xylazine HCl-zolazepam HCl/tiletamine HCl. Recovery following antagonist administration was significantly faster with medetomidine HCl-zolazepam HCl/tiletamine HCl. The average drug volumes required were 7.00 mL of xylazine HCl-zolazepam HCl/tiletamine HCL and 2.78 mL of medetomidine HCl-zolazepam HCl/tiletamine HCl. Hypoxemia, hypercarbia, and rumenal tympany were the major adverse effects with both drug combinations.  (+info)

Osteochondrosis and epiphyseal bone abnormalities associated with copper deficiency in bison calves. (7/123)

Two bison calves were submitted to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine to confirm suspected copper deficiency. In addition to clinical signs, there were pathologic changes in the cartilage and subchondral bone of several joints. Water analysis indicated high levels of sulfate in the drinking water, contributing to a secondary copper deficiency.  (+info)

Riboflavin and niacin concentrations of bison cuts. (8/123)

We analyzed the riboflavin and niacin contents of individual cuts from clod (triceps brachii), ribeye (longissimus thoracis), top round (semimembranosus), and top sirloin (gluteus medius) from 24 fed bison bulls. The bulls came from producers in the United States and Canada and had consumed concentrate diets plus hay free choice for at least 100 d. The mean riboflavin and niacin concentrations of all of the bison cuts combined were .094 and 1.910 mg/100 g wet weight, respectively. The riboflavin and niacin content values did not differ (P < .05) among the cuts of meat. Cuts from individual bulls were significantly different (P < .05) with regard to both riboflavin and niacin contents. Little variation was observed in riboflavin and niacin content of five bison from the same producer and two bison from another producer. These content values may be used in estimating the riboflavin and niacin content of bison meat.  (+info)

The European bison (Bison bonasus), now found in Europe and the Caucasus, has been proposed to originate either from the extinct steppe/extant American bison lineage or from the extinct Bison schoetensacki lineage. Bison schoetensacki remains are documented in Eurasian Middle Pleistocene sites, but their presence in Upper Pleistocene sites has been questioned. Despite extensive genetic studies carried out on the steppe and European bison, no remains from the fossil record morphologically identified as Bison schoetensacki has been analyzed up to now. In this paper, we analyzed a 36,000-year-old Bison schoetensaki bone sample from the Siréjol cave (France) and a cave hyena coprolite (fossilized feces) found in a nearby cave and containing large amounts of Bovinae DNA. We show that the Bovinae mitochondrial DNA sequences from both samples, including a complete mitochondrial genome sequence, belong to a clade recently reported in the literature. This clade only includes ancient bison specimens without

Yellowstone National Park has begun this winters bison cull, an annual event intended to help maintain an ecologically sustainable population of American bison (Bison bison) within the park and to prevent the possible spread of brucellosis from bison to cattle outside of park boundaries. A predetermined number of bison are removed from Yellowstone National Park every winter under the Interagency Bison Management Plan (IBMP).. This winter, the National Park Service expects that anywhere from 900 to 1,300 bison will be removed from Yellowstone. The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported on Feb. 8 that the first 15 of over 400 previously captured bison held at Yellowstones northern edge had been placed in trailers to be taken to a slaughterhouse. Several hundred more will be processed within the next month. According to NPS, the bison meat and hides will be distributed among American Indian tribes.. Several of the captured bison were previously slated to be transferred to a new facility built by the ...
The largest extant representative of the bovids, a diverse and well-known family, is the Asian forest-dwelling gaur (Bos gaurus), in which bulls can weigh up to 1,500 kg (3,300 lb), 4.5 m (15 ft) in total length and stand 2.2 m (7.2 ft) at the shoulder.[7][8] The living American Bison (Bison bison) of North America 2 to 3.5 m (6.6 to 11.5 ft) long, the tail adding 30 to 91 cm (12 to 36 in). Shoulder heights in the species can range from 152 to 201 cm (60 to 79 in).[9] Weights can range from 318 to 1,000 kg (701 to 2,205 lb).[10][11] The heaviest wild American bull ever recorded weighed 1,270 kg (2,800 lb).[12] The European bison (Bison bonasus) may be less heavy than the American species,[9] but would exceed heights at withers with the tallest record of 210 cm (83 in).[13] When raised in captivity and farmed for meat, the bisons can grow unnaturally heavy and the largest semidomestic American bison weighed 1,724 kg (3,801 lb) [10] and the heaviest European bison weighed about 1,900 kg (4,200 ...
Historically, the lowland European bisons range encompassed most of the lowlands of northern Europe, extending from the Massif Central to the Volga River and the Caucasus. It may have once lived in the Asiatic part of what is now the Russian Federation. The European bison is known in southern Sweden only between 9500 and 8700 BP, and in Denmark similarly is documented only from the Pre-Boreal.[15] It is not recorded from the British Isles nor from Italy or the Iberian Peninsula.[16] A possible ancestor, the extinct steppe bison, B. priscus, is known from across Eurasia and North America, last occurring 7,000 BC,[17] and is depicted in the Cave of Altamira and Lascaux. Another possible ancestor, the Pleistocene woodland bison, B. schoetensaki, was last present 36,000 BC.[4] Cave paintings appear to distinguish between B. bonasus and B. priscus.[18]. Within mainland Europe, its range decreased as human populations expanded and cut down forests. The last references (Oppian, Claudius Aelianus) to ...

The European bison and the American bison are closely related and can interbreed without any fertility problems. Because of this, several authors treated them as one species in the past. Phenotypic differences are apparent; the American bison has a more longish and massive body, more opulent fur on the head forelegs and also the horns are not as long but thicker as in the Wisent, among other differences. However, both species are ecologically similar, except that grasses make up a higher portion in the diet of the American bison. The Wood bison, B. b. athabascae, inhabits a similar habitat as the Wisent did in ancient Europe. In 1940, hybrids of American and European bison were released in the Caucasus. After controlled culling and subsequent replacement with pure wisents, the portion of American blood within the Caucasus population is now estimated being only about 5%, although the American influence is still slightly visible in the phenotype of the animals. Allegedly this population has a ...
The ancestors of the American bison (Bison bison) now in Alaska were transplanted from Montana in 1928, when 20 animals were imported by the Alaska Game Commission and released in the area of what is now Delta Junction. Additional herds have developed along the Copper River, Chitina River, and near Farewell from natural emigration and transplant. Small domesticated herds have also been established near Kodiak and Delta Junction, as well as on Popov Island.[15] Another sub-species of bison, the wood bison (b. b. athabascae) was once Alaskas most common large land mammal. The combined effects of pre-contact habitat change and human harvest were probably responsible for their disappearance. The last reported sighting of wood bison in Alaska was in the early 1900s. Oral history accounts from Alaska Native elders suggest that these bison were a resource for indigenous peoples in Alaska as recently as 200 years ago.[16] In 2003, there were approximately 900 wild American bison in Alaska.[17] Their ...

The National Park Service (NPS) and the State of Montana (Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks and the Montana Department of Livestock) announced today that they will begin preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a new plan to manage a wild and migratory population of Yellowstone-area bison, while minimizing the risk of brucellosis transmission between bison and livestock to the extent practicable. A Notice of Intent has been published in the Federal Register. The new plan is needed because conditions have changed since implementation of the Interagency Bison Management Plan began in 2001, including agency experience in managing bison and new science. A range of six preliminary draft alternative concepts has been developed by the NPS and the State of Montana, with input from cooperating agencies. The preliminary alternative concepts primarily differ in terms of bison abundance, bison tolerance outside of the park, and the tools that could be used to manage the bison population within the ...
Today, bison are absent from most of their former range, and in terms of ecological function, they are losing ground. With our partners, were developing tools, techniques, and information to further our understanding of bison restoration. Were building communities of practice around these efforts. And were strengthening outreach, providing education, and informing policy to support bison recovery.. Time is running out. Most bison in North America are held in captivity and managed for meat production. Just a few wild bison herds remain and most of these are small isolated populations facing the gradual loss of genetic diversity. We need to expand existing herds and reintroduce bison to new large landscapes to avoid ecological extinction.. ...
Results from lab tests confirm that the first of three dead bison found in the Yellowstone River did not die from malignant catarrhal fever (results on the other two bison are pending and expected within one to two weeks). The exact cause of death could not be determined from tissue samples. However, there was no sign of disease. The only evidence of abnormality on the carcass - visible to FWP Wildlife Veterinarian Jennifer Ramsey - was trauma to the animals pelvis.. Within the past two weeks, three dead bison were spotted in the Yellowstone River. With two separate efforts, FWP crews were able to retrieve tissue samples from each bison: the first near Emigrant, and the other two closer to Gardiner. Ramsey also documented trauma to these other two bison in the form of broken ribs in one, and a fractured pelvis in the other. She believes these traumas to have been suffered before death. Given the recent introduction of domestic sheep in the Gardiner area, FWP looked into the possibility of ...

As Yellowstone National Park enters the busiest month of the year, visitors are reminded that they are responsible for their safety, which includes viewing wildlife from safe distances of at least 25 yards. In recent separate incidents, two people were injured after getting too close to bison. The first encounter occurred on June 23 when an off-duty concession employee came upon a bison while walking off trail after dark in the Lower Geyser Basin area. The second incident occurred July 1, when a visitor encountered a bison while hiking the Storm Point trail in the Yellowstone Lake area.. The first incident happened when a 19-year-old female from Georgia and three friends were returning to their car after swimming in the Firehole River late at night. The girl and a companion were walking in the dark when they came upon a bison lying down about 10 feet from them. The companion turned and ran from the bison, but before the girl could react, the bison charged her and tossed her in the air. Her ...

The difference in temperature between those two states is around 20 degrees Fahrenheit, which is about three times the projected increase in temperatures over the next 75 years, Craine said. Thats a pretty extreme difference and beyond the worst-case scenario. But it is a clear indicator that long-term warming will affect bison and is something that will happen across the U.S. over the next 50-75 years.. While the economic cost of smaller bison might not be so great, Craine said that warming might also shrink the revenue of cattle producers.. Although compiling and analyzing data about cattle weights has yet to be done, findings for bison may translate to the more than 90 million cattle in the U.S., Craine said. Cattle and bison share similar physiologies and weight gain for both is typically limited by protein intake.. If the same reduction in weight gain applies to cattle as bison, every temperature increase of one-and-a-half degrees Fahrenheit could cause roughly $1 billion in lost income ...

Well, this is an interesting CYA response, now that everyone knows Corrientes arent the cause. Poor Buffalo Allies of Bozeman - another group who doesnt have a clue. How do you know bison didnt cause this? - the investigation isnt complete! Are you aware of the 1983 US Animal Health Association report showing free ranging bison infecting cattle with brucellosis? I doubt it. Do your research. Learn the real story. The GYA bison are up to 50% seropositive. Dont believe the exposure malarky to explain that. The antibodies are antigen driven - meaning there must be bacteria present in the animals body to cause a positive blood test. A positive animal is NOT immune - quite the contrary!The brucella antibody half-life is about 3 weeks - meaning if the animal was able to fight off the disease (which a few do), they would be test negative very quickly. If they test positive, they are likely infected. Bison and elk swap the disease back and forth and it spills over into cattle when the ...

(AP) - Evidence is mounting that wild North American bison are gradually shedding their genetic diversity across many of the isolated herds overseen by the U.S. government, weakening future resilience against disease and climate events in the shadow of human encroachment.. The extent of the creeping threat to herds overseen by the Department of Interior - the backbone of wild bison conservation efforts for North America - is coming into sharper focus amid advances in genetic studies.. Preliminary results of a genetic population analysis commissioned by the National Park Service show three small federal herds would almost certainly die off - extinguishing their DNA lineage - within 200 years under current management practices that limit transfers for interbreeding among distant herds.. The study is awaiting peer review by other scientists. It does not include Yellowstone National Parks herd of some 5,000 unfenced bison, the largest federal conservation herd thats seen by millions ...
CHAD LAWHORNLawrence Journal-World COTTONWOOD FALLS - As Flint Hills cowboy Gene Matile operates the high-tech squeeze chute and scale, one observation becomes obvious: 1,500 pounds on a bison sure looks a lot different than 1,500 pounds on a beef cow. More intimidating, for some reason, Matile says with a laugh. Of course, Matile already knew that. He was part of a group that traveled to Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota in 2009 to take possession of a herd of 13 bison to bring back to

We analyzed long-term demographic and environmental data to understand the role of large scale climatic factors (the Pacific Decadal Oscillations [PDO]) and environmental factors in 3 regions of North America on natality and mortality of the remnant migratory whooping crane (Grus americana) population. This is an endangered species that spends winters at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Texas, breeds at Wood Buffalo National Park (WBNP) in Canada and
January 21, 2013 - News Release. Early warning systems using DNA to track environmental health, especially in protected areas near Canadian oil sands, mining and hydroelectric projects, are the goal of a major research project led by University of Guelph scientists. The project is one of three major research initiatives highlighted in the latest annual report of the Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI). Its funded by a three-year, $3.2-million grant from Genome Canada through the OGI as well as support from Environment Canada and Parks Canada. Biomonitoring 2.0 is the first large-scale project using genetic data to track the health of entire ecosystems, said project leader Mehrdad Hajibabaei, an integrative biology professor and a principal in U of Gs Biodiversity Institute of Ontario (BIO).. Scientists are already using the project - based on DNA barcoding developed in Guelph - to help assess environmental threats in Wood Buffalo National Park. Spanning northern Alberta and part of the ...

Our first working location was out in an open meadow. A lone bull stood grazing peaceably and hardly took notice of the crew of park rangers, a cameraman, and other officials, including an armed marksman in the event someones life became endangered by a charging bison.. To begin with, I chose Leo, because of his deliberate approach as my anchor dog. He was powerful, but wouldnt take any foolish chance. I felt that after I saw him in action I would be able to assess the odds and figure a game plan.. As Leo approached the fight/flight zone, the bull lifted his head and charged. Leo dodged him and slipped around to heel him from behind, but bison bulls dont turn in the same manner a domestic bull does with his powerful hind legs. When a bison spins, he pivots on his forelegs which free his assaulting hindquarters to kick out with simultaneous jabs, while he meets his challenger with his substantial head and horns.. Leo avoided the attacks of the bull, and would turn and reposition himself to ...

Seventeen skunks have tested positive…
It began as an innocent, good willed attempt at providing supper for my family. Ground bison. Presumably completely dead and with no ill intentions toward me, my hair, or my kitchen.. I cooked it up around 1:00 p.m. and pushed the pot to the back burner. Little did I know that this simple act would trigger a chain of events that would lead to a Facebook status, a blog post, and an hour of kitchen rehabilitation.. Around 7:00 p.m., I returned to the scene. I noticed the innocuous-looking, room-temperature bison in the pan and decided to finish the spaghetti for the next day. I put the pan on the front burner and turned the heat to medium-low.. Five minutes later, I was cutting up red bell pepper and watching Criminal Minds over the kitchen bar. On the show, the unsub snuck into a mans house, pointed a gun at him, and forced him onto the floor. The man was pleading for his life, the .40 Smith & Wesson mere inches from his head. Suddenly, BOOM! My bison exploded right on cue.. A hot air bubble? A ...
Jefferson Hagen, MacEwan Athletics. EDMONTON - With better serving and a more disciplined blocking presence, the MacEwan Griffins were able to play portions of Saturdays final mens volleyball match of the season in the City Centre Campus gym dead even with the No. 1-ranked Manitoba Bisons.. Except, try as they might, they had no answer for big No. 6 - hulking Bisons left-side Evan Jackson - who piled up 16 kills on a .500 hitting percentage to lead his squad to another 3-0 victory (25-19, 25-21, 25-22).. We had what I thought was a pretty OK game plan, but he played well, said Griffins head coach Brad Poplawski.. When we adjusted our block, he was able to see that and go opposite that with pace. A lot of guys can hit that shot 60 or 80 per cent, but he was able to hit it hard any direction. So his range is really good.. He lit us up this weekend, for sure.. Its the 20th-straight win of the season for the Bisons, who sit atop the Canada West standings at 21-1.. Is that what it is? Wow, ...

My thesis research is part of the larger wood bison restoration effort in Alaska, and its theme is within the human dimensions of wildlife management, that is, the social-psychological aspects involving wildlife conservation and management. The overarching goal of my research is to understand how Alaskans currently perceive impacts and opportunities that may arise as a result from the wood bison reintroduction, and how they differ in their opinions and views about wood bison management in the state. Specifically, my research will focus on two main objectives: 1) to understand how Alaskans feel about the strategies within the wood bison management plan; and 2) to understand local residents views toward possible wildlife related developments (e.g., guiding, accommodation, transportation services) within their communities, as a result of bison restoration. Understanding the differences among Alaskans will help adjusting particular management issues and concerns to each particular region affected, ...

Large quantities of impact-related microspherules have been found in fine-grained sediments retained within seven out of nine, radiocarbon-dated, Late Pleistocene mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) and bison (Bison priscus) skull fragments. The well-preserved fossils were recovered from frozen muck deposits (organic-rich silt) exposed within the Fairbanks and Klondike mining districts of Alaska, USA, and the Yukon Territory, Canada. In addition, elevated platinum abundances were found in sediment analysed from three out of four fossil skulls. In view of this new evidence, the mucks and their well preserved but highly disrupted and damaged vertebrate and botanical remains are reinterpreted in part as blast deposits that resulted from several episodes of airbursts and ground/ice impacts within the northern hemisphere during Late Pleistocene time (~46-11 ka B.P.). Such a scenario might be explained by encounters with cometary debris in Earth-crossing orbits (Taurid Complex) that was generated by ...

The 22nd Annual Meeting of American Society for Virology. 2003. Abstract. p. 247. Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: Ovine herpesvirus-2 (OvHV-2), a member of ruminant rhadinoviruses, asymptomatically infects its natural host, the sheep, but causes a clinical disease syndrome named malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) in other less well-adapted hosts, such as cattle, bison and deer. OvHV-2 has never been isolated and little information is available about its productive replication in vivo. In this study, we identified OvHV-2 replication sites in naturally infected sheep. Six sheep with high OvHV-2 viral DNA copy numbers (ranging from 100,000 to 100,000,000 per 2 ug DNA) in their nasal secretions were selected using real-time PCR. Strong signals were obtained by in situ hybridization in epithelial cells of the mucosa and the submucosal glands of ...

An outbreak of the sheep-associated form of malignant catarrhal fever (mcf) in a Finnish sow herd was diagnosed by histopathology and confirmed by pcr. Several gilts and sows were suffering from high fever and anorexia and had aborted, and six of them had died. Typical signs of lymphoproliferation and vasculitis were observed histologically in several tissues, including the uterus. Ovine herpesvirus-2 (ovhv-2) was detected by pcr in two sows. Sequences of the ovhv-2 tegument protein gene obtained from the sows and from three cases of sheep-associated mcf in Finnish cattle were compared and found to be identical. These are the first confirmed cases of mcf in pigs in Finland.. ...
INTRODUCTION. Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) is a lymphoproliferative disease of cattle, pigs and certain species of captive and wild ruminants and has worldwide distribution. The causative agents are ruminant rhadinoviruses of the Gammaherpesvirinae subfamily, genus Rhadinovirus5. Alcelaphine herpesvirus-1 (AlHV-1) is carried asymptomatically by wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus and C. gnou)15,17 and ovine herpesvirus-2 (OvHV-2) by sheep4. Both AlHV-1 and OvHV-2 cause disease in cattle. OvHV-2 also causes disease in various other ruminant species as well as in pigs12.. In the USA the prevalence of OvHV-2 DNA in adult sheep was 99 % as determined by nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR)10. In South Africa, approximately 90 % of MCF PCR-positive cases are associated with AlHV-1 and only 10 % with OvHV-2 (M. Romito, Agricultural Research Council-Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute (ARC-OVI) pers. comm. 2009). As a result, most of the studies on MCF in cattle in South Africa have been done on ...

The lifelong hostility between eugenicist Madison Grant (1865-1937) and anthropologist Franz Boas (1858-1942) was the personification if not the core of the nature-nurture debate in the United States. Grant was one of the founders of the conservation movement in America, and worked side-byside with Theodore Roosevelt at the beginning of the twentieth century to preserve the nations natural heritage. Among his many accomplishments, Grant preserved the California redwoods, saved the American bison from extinction, founded the Bronx Zoo, helped to create the Glacier and Denali national parks, and worked tirelessly to protect the whales in the ocean, the bald eagles in the sky and the pronghorn antelopes on the prairie. But Grant was also the prophet of scientific racism and-in geographer Ellsworth Huntingtons phrase-the perennial cheerleader of the Nordics in America.2 Grant first came to the attention of the reading public in 1916, when Scribners and Sons published his bestselling opus, The ...

Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) is a frequently fatal disease, primarily of ruminants, caused by a group of gammaherpesviruses. Due to complexities of pathogenesis and epidemiology in various species, which are either clinically-susceptible or reservoir hosts, veterinary clinicians face significant challenges in laboratory diagnostics. The recent development of specific assays for viral DNA and antibodies has expanded and improved the inventory of laboratory tests and opened new opportunities for use of MCF diagnostics. Issues related to understanding and implementing appropriate assays for specific diagnostic needs must be addressed in order to take advantage of molecular diagnostics in the laboratory.

While not the dog days of summer, there are red dogs aplenty at Maxwell Wildlife Refuge. With tours reopening, residents once again have the opportunity to visit the reserve and observe dozens of baby bison born on the reserve in the past weeks. Betty Redden, Friends of Maxwell director and president of the Board of Friends of Maxwell, said the baby bison tour last Saturday was one of the most well-attended she has seen as a volunteer, with just shy of 100 visitors between the two-time slots. I was in shock. This is the largest revenue weve had with this particular tour. People were receptive. The gift shop, Ive never seen so many people buy so many of those little stuffed bison, she said. Redden said the isolation of COVID and the waning pandemic may be driving people to get out more.

Finally, as mentioned yesterday, the Syracuse Chiefs kicked off their 2011 season! Shockingly, Roger Bernadina did not play. WHAAAAAAAATT?? Some reports have stated that he will miss a few games due to family issues. If that is the case, I hope everything is okay. Other theories have Bernadina house shopping in Onondaga Lake, traveling, because hes been called up to the Nationals (I wish), or devouring Somali pirates. The most likely scenario, however, is that the Buffalo Bisons took a page out of Gloria James book and ambushed, beat, and locked up the Shark before the game. Fearful of his skills, the Bisons manager did everything he could to prevent the Shark from playing. It didnt have its desired affect, fortunately, as the Chiefs beat the Bisons 8-4. Hopefully Bernadina will be back playing soon ...
Avian Flu in Lower 48 Prompts Reminder for Alaska Subsistence Waterfowl Hunters to Clean Up After Handling Birds, Alaska Department of Fish and Game Press Release.
In addition to the MCF viruses carried by sheep and wildebeest, new laboratory tests have identified four other herpesvirus types in other host species that might cause MCF in other susceptible species, one being farmed deer.. An MCF virus usually doesnt cause disease in its host species, and susceptible species are considered dead-end hosts because they dont shed the virus.. There is no indication that MCF spreads from bovine to bovine or to other species. The same is true for bison.. Direct face-to-face contact with sheep or with their nasal/respiratory secretions left in water sources, feed bunks, stock trailers and on other equipment are known routes of transmission.. Cool, moist conditions favour survival of the virus and increase the risk of transmission, although its unlikely that it would survive more than 48 hours outside the host.. Finally, MCF is not a new disease. Wildebeest-associated MCF was described in Africa some 200 years ago and research began in the early 1900s. Sheep have ...

TB in cattle is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis). Cattle, buffalo and bison are the natural hosts of M. bovis, but nearly all mammals are susceptible to the infection to a variable degree. The organism also has the capacity to infect and cause TB in humans. However, the risk of infection for the general public remains very low in industrialised countries with long-standing bovine TB control programmes and where pasteurisation of cows milk is either mandatory or commonly practised ...
The aim of this project was to develop a serological assay based on recombinant antigens derived from the OvHV-2 genome and validation of the ELISA test using clinical serum samples. Eight OvHV-2 genes were selected for expression in three bacterial systems. Four genes could in at least one system. Three genes were expressed in an in vitro transcription-translation system (Ov8, OV8.5 and orf65). Protein purification, using epitope-tag affinity purification and conventional chromatography, was unsuccessful. Due to the lack of recombinant antigen expression, crude antigen preparations from cultured AIHV-1 and OvHV-2 infected cells were analysed. Antigens suitable for the detection of MCF virus specific serum antibodies could not be extracted from an OvHV-2 infected cell line but AIHV-1 WC11 antigen could be used to differentiate MCF-positive and -negative sera. An ELISA based on this crude antigen was established, designated WC11-ELISA. Initial validation revealed over 93% concordance between ...
