The arrangement of two or more amino acid or base sequences from an organism or organisms in such a way as to align areas of the sequences sharing common properties. The degree of relatedness or homology between the sequences is predicted computationally or statistically based on weights assigned to the elements aligned between the sequences. This in turn can serve as a potential indicator of the genetic relatedness between the organisms.
Deliberate stimulation of the host's immune response. ACTIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of ANTIGENS or IMMUNOLOGIC ADJUVANTS.

Inflammation of brain tissue caused by infection with the varicella-zoster virus (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). This condition is associated with immunocompromised states, including the ACQUIRED IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME. Pathologically, the virus tends to induce a vasculopathy and infect oligodendrocytes and ependymal cells, leading to CEREBRAL INFARCTION, multifocal regions of demyelination, and periventricular necrosis. Manifestations of varicella encephalitis usually occur 5-7 days after onset of HERPES ZOSTER and include HEADACHE; VOMITING; lethargy; focal neurologic deficits; FEVER; and COMA.

Recombinant DNA vectors encoding antigens administered for the prevention or treatment of disease. The host cells take up the DNA, express the antigen, and present it to the immune system in a manner similar to that which would occur during natural infection. This induces humoral and cellular immune responses against the encoded antigens. The vector is called naked DNA because there is no need for complex formulations or delivery agents; the plasmid is injected in saline or other buffers.
The largest of the continents. It was known to the Romans more specifically as what we know today as Asia Minor. The name comes from at least two possible sources: from the Assyrian asu (to rise) or from the Sanskrit usa (dawn), both with reference to its being the land of the rising sun, i.e., eastern as opposed to Europe, to the west. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p82 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p34)
Serologic tests based on inactivation of complement by the antigen-antibody complex (stage 1). Binding of free complement can be visualized by addition of a second antigen-antibody system such as red cells and appropriate red cell antibody (hemolysin) requiring complement for its completion (stage 2). Failure of the red cells to lyse indicates that a specific antigen-antibody reaction has taken place in stage 1. If red cells lyse, free complement is present indicating no antigen-antibody reaction occurred in stage 1.

Serum dilution neutralization test for California group virus identification and serology. (1/78)

The serum dilution neutralization test was evaluated for serological diagnosis of California group arbovirus infections and identification of virus isolates. The technical advantages and the degree of subtype specificity of the serum dilution neutralization test over the hemagglutination inhibition test and the complement fixation test were demonstrated with paired specimens from human cases, single human survey sera, and sentinel rabbit sera. Twenty-one virus isolates from various geographical areas of the United States were also used to evaluate the efficacy of the serum dilution neutralization test for specific virus identification.  (+info)

Seroepidemiology of California and Bunyamwera serogroup (Bunyaviridae) virus infections in native populations of Alaska. (2/78)

This study investigated the geographic distribution and prevalence of antibodies to California and Bunyamwera serogroup viruses in Native populations of Alaska, and demographic and ecologic risk factors associated with exposure. Sera (n = 1,635) from 18 communities were screened using an ELISA. All age groups were tested for antibodies to Jamestown Canyon (JC), Inkoo (INK), snowshoe hare (SSH), and Northway (NOR) viruses; persons > or = 45 years old (n = 90) from six communities were additionally tested for antibodies to Tahyna (TAH), Batai (BAT), Cache Valley (CV), and Sindbis (SIN) viruses. Thirty free-ranging mammals were tested by a plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT) for antibodies to all eight viruses and to Getah (GET) virus. In Natives, overall antibody prevalence was 24.9% (JC = 17.6%, monotypic JC = 6.5%, INK = 11.1%, monotypic INK = 0.6%, SSH = 6.8%, monotypic SSH = 3.5%, and NOR = 6.2%). Five TAH, CV, and BAT virus exposures may be serologic cross-reactions, and no SIN virus antibodies were detected. Sindbis-like virus antibodies were found in 30% of the mammals. Most mammals had antibodies to NOR (83.3%) and California serogroup (70.0%) viruses; no GET virus exposures were found. Significant risk factors for human bunyavirus exposures were age group, ethnic-linguistic group, biotic province, climate zone, terrestrial vegetation, and presence of some ungulates and small mammals in communities. Sex was not a significant risk factor.  (+info)

Bunyavirus superinfection and segment reassortment in transovarially infected mosquitoes. (3/78)

Rapid evolution of bunyaviruses may occur by RNA segment reassortment between closely related viruses. Reassortment between viruses occurs in dually infected mosquitoes when two different viruses are simultaneously ingested or when the second virus is ingested within 2 days of the first virus. By 3 days after oral infection, interference to superinfection occurs, thus limiting the potential for evolution. Aedes triseriatus mosquitoes can also be transovarially infected (TI+) with LaCrosse (LAC) virus. In these studies, the potential for oral superinfection of TI+ mosquitoes was assessed. Approximately 20% of mosquitoes TI+ with either a temperature-sensitive LAC virus or wild-type (wt) LAC virus became superinfected by ingesting blood meals containing wt LAC or snowshoe hare (SSH) viruses. LAC virus TI+ mosquitoes superinfected with SSH virus were detected by blot hybridization or RT-PCR. Viruses from these mosquitoes were plaque purified and genotyped using RT-PCR. Reassortant genomes were detected in 2.3% of the viruses genotyped, and 4.0% of the genomes tested were diploid for one genome segment.  (+info)

Serological diagnosis of California (La Crosse) encephalitis by immunofluorescence. (4/78)

A method of indirect immunofluorescence was developed and examined retrospectively as a serological test for the laboratory diagnosis of California encephalitis (CE). LaCrosse virus immunofluorescence immunoglobulin (Ig) G and IgM studies were done on paired sera from 50 patients with acute central nervous system infections. CE had been documented in 25 patients by hemagglutination inhibition, neutralizing, complement fixing, and/or precipitin tests. Five (20%) of the acute and 16 (64%) of the convalescent sera from CE patients had La Crosse IgM antibodies. Seven (28%) of the acute and all of the convalescent CE specimens had La Crosse IgG antibodies. Titers ranged from less than 4 to 256. IgG antibodies were present in all 11 sera collected 1 to 2 years after CE, but IgM antibodies were absent. The 25 serum pairs from patients who did not have CE were negative for IgM and IgG antibodies. This study indicated that La Crosse immunofluorescence antibody tests were as sensitive and specific for CE as conventional hemagglutination-inhibition tests, and would detect at least 20% of patients during their acute illness.  (+info)

The first reported case of California encephalitis in more than 50 years. (5/78)

A recent case of California encephalitis, a rare mosquito-borne viral disease, represents only the fourth ever reported and the first since the initial three cases in 1945. This case was diagnosed retrospectively on the basis of a rise in antibody titer between acute- and convalescent-phase serum samples.  (+info)

Molecular characterization of California serogroup viruses isolated in Russia. (6/78)

Nucleotide sequencing was used to characterize unidentified California (CAL) serogroup virus isolates from Russia. These viruses were isolated from mosquitoes and humans during epidemiologic investigations on the role of CAL serogroup viruses in the increased incidence of arboviral encephalitis in Russia. Most of the isolates were identified serologically as snowshoe hare (SSH), Inkoo (INK), and Tahyna (TAH) viruses, but some of the isolates were difficult to classify serologically, suggesting that they could be reassortant viruses. There is evidence that at least 2 of these viruses are not reassortant viruses. Sequence analysis revealed that the Russian viruses differ from other Eurasian and North American CAL serogroup viruses in all of the segments analyzed. They are most closely related to SSH virus. Whether they differ sufficiently to be considered a new group of SSH-like viruses remains to be determined.  (+info)

Non-random reassortment between the tripartite RNA genomes of La Crosse and snowshoe hare viruses. (7/78)

The process of reassortment between the tripartite RNA genomes (segments designated L, M and S) of snowshoe hare and La Crosse bunyaviruses (Bunyaviridae) has been investigated by polymerase chain reaction analysis of greater than 250 progeny recovered at 72 h post-infection from dual wild-type virus infections involving high multiplicities (approximately 5) of each virus in a BHK-21 cell line. Statistical analysis of the data indicated that RNA segment reassortment was not random, and for these two viruses the data appeared to fit the hypothesis that there was a preference for homologous L-M and M-S associations among the progeny formed.  (+info)

Mosquitoborne viruses, Czech Republic, 2002. (8/78)

Specimens from residents (N = 497) of an area affected by the 2002 flood were examined serologically for mosquitoborne viruses. Antibodies were detected against Tahyna (16%), Sindbis (1%), and Batai (0.2%) viruses, but not West Nile virus. An examination of paired serum samples showed 1 Tahyna bunyavirus (California group) infection.  (+info)

The Cree communities of James Bay are in risk for contracting infectious diseases transmitted by wildlife. serogroup infections (Jamestown Canyon and snowshoe hare viruses) were evaluated in three and six communities respectively. Seroprevalence varied widely among communities: snowshoe hare computer virus (1% to 42%) (14% to 37%) species (10% to 27%) Jamestown Canyon computer virus (9% to 24%) (0% to 18%) (4% to 12%) (0% to 10%) (0% to 4%) and species (0% to 1%). Tenovin-6 No subject had serological evidence of Sin Nombre computer virus exposure. These data suggest that large proportions of the Cree populace have been exposed to at least one of the targeted zoonotic brokers. The Cree populace particularly those most heavily exposed to fauna as well as the medical staff living in these regions should be aware of these diseases. Greater awareness would not only help to decrease exposures but would also increase the chance of appropriate diagnostic testing. et Tenovin-6 au ont été vérifiées ...

BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration New York Division Special Agent in Charge Ray Donovan and U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Terrence M. McRae, 40, of Jamestown, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. Vilardo to possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua A. Violanti, who is handling the case, stated that on September 6, 2019, members of the Jamestown Metro Drug Task Force executed a New York State search warrant at the residence of Richard Kinsey on Newland Avenue in Jamestown. Before the execution of the warrant, investigators observed co-defendants Richard Kinsey and Brandi Whitford arrive and enter the residence. A short time later, the defendant and another individual entered the residence. As investigators moved into the residence to begin executing the search warrant, they observed McRae exit the residence to a

Jamestown (originally James Town) was named after Sir James Fergusson, the Governor of South Australia when the town was surveyed in 1871. Its streets are all named for towns in his native Scotland.[2] Major products of the area are grain, legumes, wool and timber. The worlds first plantation forest was the Bundaleer Forest first planted in the area in 1876. The local area had first been granted self-government as the District Council of Belalie in 1875, but the township of Jamestown itself had separated as the Corporate Town of Jamestown in 1878. The Belalie council, comprising the surrounding areas, merged into the new District Council of Jamestown in 1935. Jamestown continued with two municipalities, one for the town and one for the surrounding area, until their amalgamation in 1991; the amalgamated municipality then merged into the new Northern Areas Council in 1997.[2] ...
Jamestown, located on Jamestown Island in the Virginia Colony, was founded on May 14, 1607. It is commonly regarded as the first permanent English settlement in what is now the United States, following several earlier failed attempts. It was founded by the Virginia Company, headquartered in London. The location at Jamestown Island was selected primarily because it offered a favorable strategic defensive position against other European forces which might approach by water. However, the colonists soon discovered that the swampy and isolated site was plagued by mosquitoes and tidal river water unsuitable for drinking, and offered limited opportunities for hunting and little space for farming. The area was also inhabited by Native Americans. What became known as the Starving Time in the Virginia Colony occurred during the winter of 1609 10. Only 60 of 214 English colonists survived. Throughout the 17th century, Jamestown was the capital of the Virginia Colony. On October 20, 1698, the statehouse ...

There are several hypocrisies that emerge from this discovery. One is the immediate cover that western anthros and archeologists attempt to provide for this practice by labeling it survival cannibalism. When Columbus, and later Franciscus de Vitoria, Edward Coke, and their successors, developed and applied legal justifications for the waging of just war against indigenous peoples, evidence of cannibalism was on the top of the list. The coining of the term survival cannibalism provides a Eurocentric shield to suggest that the Jamestown folks were still culturally superior to the Powahtans around therm, but that the English invaders only resorted to cannibalism as a last resort to survive. Any reasonable person would have done the same, right? The resulting implication is that he Indians, on the other hand, were permanently mired in a culturally and spiritually inferior condition (reportedly engaging in cannibalism on a regular basis), requiring remediation (or extermination, whichever ...

Dr. Glaser offers a unique prospective on neurovirology, having both a veterinary and medical background and she brings this expertise to the California Encephalitis Project (CEP), where she has served as director since its inception in 1998. The CEP was initiated to investigate and characterize etiologic agents and the epidemiologic features of encephalitis. The CEP examines infectious viral groups including herpesviruses, enteroviruses, and arboviruses. Non-viral etiologies such as amoeba, rickettsia and mycoplasma also fall within the CEPs scope of investigation. Testing for infectious agents was coordinated by the Centers for Disease Control and incorporated many other laboratories throughout the world to identify and characterize pathogens. Under the direction of Dr. Glaser, over 6000 cases have been referred to the CEP, and although the etiology of many cases remain unexplained, several important findings regarding encephalitis have emerged. Limitations of molecular testing for ...
All wild animals carry diseases. In some cases these might be of concern because they can spread to humans or domestic animals. In other cases they may be of interest simply because the signs of the disease have been seen and you want to know more. Though diseases are relatively common in these animals there is usually an increase in reporting when the hare populations are at a peak. High populations mean that there is an increased chance of one animal infecting another. In addition, when there are too many animals in one area, the amount of available food is reduced so that the animals become weaker and more vulnerable to disease. The two common tapeworm infections in the snowshoe hare of this province are described in this fact sheet.
Snowshoe hares that camouflage themselves by changing their coats from brown in summer to white in winter face serious threats from climate change, and its uncertain whether hare populations will be able to adapt in time, ...
Answer: B. Plaque reduction neutralization test. PRNT is used to confirm JCV infection following a positive or equivocal result for IgM-class antibodies by enzyme immunoassay or immunofluorescence assay. PRNT is also used to compare the endpoint neutralizing antibody titers between closely related viruses, with the infectious virus most frequently identified as the one with at least a 4-fold or higher endpoint titer compared to the other tested viruses. This is especially helpful if serologic testing is positive for more than one virus in the California serogroup, which occurs frequently due to the cross-reactivity of these assays. ...

One theme of these poems is a fascination with the prairie. As you travels west from Fargo North Dakota you soon approach an line of hills rising 200 to 300 feet from the valley floor. Geologists call this the Pembina Escarpment. As your road winds up these hill you be entering the middle plateau of the Great Plains called the Drift Prairie. If you were to continue west of Jamestown you would come to another wall of 300 foot high hills called the Missouri Escarpment. However if you turn south at Jamestown and follow the James River south you will come to the little town where Rick was born and I grew up wandering the prairie and finding ancient campgrounds and arrow heads and wondering what life was like centuries before in this fascinating land. Many of Ricks poems celebrate the beauty of this land and the animals and people that live here now and lived here over the centuries ...

The Grom 2019 exercise of Russian strategic forces last week (October 15-17) received limited media attention, which was overwhelmed by the escalation of the Syrian calamity (see EDM, October 17) and the continuation of the Brexit drama. But this years Grom maneuvers were, in fact, unprecedented in both their scale and intensity. Official information is deliberately imprecise. But reportedly, launches of ballistic missiles by submarines of the Northern and Pacific fleets were coordinated with missile strikes from Tu-95MS long-range bombers and with the test of a land-based intercontinental missile; ships of the Northern Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla practiced Kalibr cruise missile strikes against onshore targets; and S-400 surface-to-air missile systems in Crimea defended against a simulated air attack (Rossiiskaya gazeta, October 17). This complex test of the whole range of Russian capabilities highlights achievements in preparations for a full-scale nuclear war (Ezhednevny Zhurnal, October ...
Burlington Daily Times, May 14, 1861. We are not a homogeneous people. We never have been so. What is distinctively denominated American civilization has streamed across the continent on parallel or nearly parallel lines, from the two centers, Plymouth Rock and Jamestown. Other elements have, from time to time, been worked in, to be sure, but they have been leavened and molded by the controlling and primary power that set the whole movement agoing. A large foreign population is of no material account. If reckoned by the head, they would present a formidable army, but when estimated by the juster and proper standard of the power they exert in shaping our affairs and the destiny of the nation they shrink at once to an inappreciable value.. These two great currents of civilization were radically different on the start. Plymouth Rock had little sympathy with Jamestown. The plain, stern, reverent Puritan could not fraternize with the extravagant, profligate and courtly planter of the old Dominion. ...

By Zaal Anjaparidze. The parliamentary elections in Georgia, which are scheduled for November 2, are turning into a struggle between the forces of the past, grouped around President Eduard Shevardnadze, and a newborn opposition that adheres to Western values. The fact that the leaders of this opposition were until recently Shevardnadze loyalists gives added spice to the election struggle. The elections could propel this fresh blood to power. On the other hand, despite a sharp social-economic crisis, political disorder and territorial disintegration, President Shevardnadze remains the center of attraction for political and public forces in Georgia.. Shevardnadze has already disproved the forecasts of experts, who had predicted that he would try to keep an equal distance from the various political parties. That would have left room for the political maneuvers at which he is so adept, before and after the elections. Shevardnadze probably learned a lesson from the events of November 2001, when, ...

I had a harder time finding this pet than just about any other -- even the seasonal/time-based pets! There are very few in the area, and most of them are not battleable. Worse, there seems to phasing issues because often I will see one and itll be gone by the time I land. Sometimes I could still target them, but theyd be invisible. I dont recall any quest phasing in this area, so perhaps its just a weird bug.. These pets can be primary or secondaries, so if you cant find any rabbits in the snow-covered areas, you should head east to Strahnbrad and fight the rats there in hopes you cross one as a secondary. Thats how I finally got one. ...

  • Although transmission of infection has not been documented for persons working with B virus in the laboratory, such work is potentially hazardous. (cdc.gov)
  • The working group also recognizes that the paucity of information regarding the transmissibility of B virus, the efficacy of measures to prevent transmission, and the chemotherapy of B virus infection have rendered these guidelines difficult to formulate. (cdc.gov)
  • The risk of acquiring B virus infection from macaques appears to be very low. (cdc.gov)
  • Persons who have handled macaques since B virus infection was first reported in humans number in the thousands, yet only 22 well-documented cases of infection have been described. (cdc.gov)
  • We show that disease progression and survival following intranasal infection with a neurotropic virus depends on the circadian time of infection. (pnas.org)
  • The highest expression of REV-ERBα, a component of the molecular circadian clock, coincides with the start of the active cycle, when vesicular stomatitis virus infection leads to lower mortality. (pnas.org)

  • Some of the notorious infections transmitted by these vectors include Lyme disease, Zika virus infection and West Nile virus infection. (news-medical.net)
  • The herpesviruses are large, double-stranded DNA viruses that are well-adapted to human infection as they establish lifelong infection, rarely cause death of the host, and are readily spread between individuals. (springer.com)
  • Mutagenesis of these clusters indicated that the predictions accurately detected areas crucial for virus infection. (springer.com)
  • In addition to the fusion peptide area in domain 2, at least two other surface areas play an important role in virus infection. (springer.com)
  • Human herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection in neonates can result in devastating outcomes, including mortality and significant morbidity. (cps.ca)
  • Estimated rates of neonatal human herpes simplex virus (NHSV) infection vary across different regions of the world. (cps.ca)
  • We identified thirteen cases of suspected encephalitis with HPeV infection between May 2013 and December 2014. (aappublications.org)
  • Although any exposed person can become infected with a zoonotic pathogen, risks are particularly high for those with a compromised or incompletely developed immune system, such as the young, elderly, pregnant and those with immune function-reducing conditions or treatments, including diabetes, cancer, infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and radiation therapy. (gopetsamerica.com)
  • For example, U.S. National Park Service employees showed evidence of prior infection with a variety of zoonotic agents, including California serogroup bunyaviruses, Bartonella henselae (26.7%), spotted fever group rickettsiae (22.2%), Toxoplasma gondii (11.1%), Anaplasma phagocytophilum (8.1%), Brucella spp. (gopetsamerica.com)
