T-cell lymphoma in a savanna monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) probably related to simian T-cell leukemia virus infection. (1/681)

Lymphoma was seen in an 11-year-old female savanna monkey (Ceropithecus aethiops). The superficial inguinal and visceral lymph nodes were markedly enlarged, and their architecture was completely effaced by neoplastic cells. The neoplastic cells, which were highly pleomorphic, resembled those in adult T-cell lymphoma-leukemia in humans. Ultrastructurally the neoplastic cells were characterized by nuclear irregularity and clustered dense bodies, and almost all cells showed positivity for CD3. The animal had been reared with her family, and her mother and 2 brothers had antibodies reactive to human T-cell leukemia virus. This virus serologically cross-reacts with simian T-cell leukemia virus, which may be the causative agent of the present neoplasm.  (+info)

Serologic evidence for an epizootic dengue virus infecting toque macaques (Macaca sinica) at Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka. (2/681)

Dengue is one of the most rapidly emerging diseases in the tropics. Humans are the principal reservoir of dengue viruses. It is unclear if nonhuman primates also serve as a reservoir of human dengue viruses under certain conditions. In this study, a cross-sectional serologic survey was carried out to characterize the pattern of transmission of a recently identified dengue virus among toque macaques in Sri Lanka. The results indicated that an epizootic dengue virus was active among the macaques. A single epizootic had taken place between October 1986 and February 1987 during which 94% of the macaques within the 3 km2 study site were exposed to the virus. The epizootic was highly focal in nature because macaques living 5 km from the study population were not exposed to the virus. The transmission of dengue viruses among macaques in the wild may have important public health implications.  (+info)

Detection of enzootic babesiosis in baboons (Papio cynocephalus) and phylogenetic evidence supporting synonymy of the genera Entopolypoides and Babesia. (3/681)

Blood smear evaluation of two baboons (Papio cynocephalus) experiencing acute hemolytic crises following experimental stem cell transplantation revealed numerous intraerythrocytic organisms typical of the genus Babesia. Both animals had received whole-blood transfusions from two baboon donors, one of which was subsequently found to display rare trophozoites of Entopolypoides macaci. An investigation was then undertaken to determine the prevalence of hematozoa in baboons held in our primate colony and to determine the relationship, if any, between the involved species. Analysis of thick and thin blood films from 65 healthy baboons (23 originating from our breeding facility, 26 originating from an out-of-state breeding facility, and 16 imported from Africa) for hematozoa revealed rare E. macaci parasites in 31%, with respective prevalences of 39, 35, and 12%. Phylogenetic analysis of nuclear small-subunit rRNA gene sequences amplified from peripheral blood of a baboon chronically infected with E. macaci demonstrated this parasite to be most closely related to Babesia microti (97.9% sequence similarity); sera from infected animals did not react in indirect fluorescent-antibody tests with Babesia microti antigen, however, suggesting that they represent different species. These results support an emerging view that the genus Entopolypoides Mayer 1933 is synonymous with that of the genus Babesia Starcovici 1893 and that the morphological variation noted among intracellular forms is a function of alteration in host immune status. The presence of an underrecognized, but highly enzootic, Babesia sp. in baboons may result in substantial, unanticipated impact on research programs. The similarity of this parasite to the known human pathogen B. microti may also pose risks to humans undergoing xenotransplantation, mandating effective screening of donor animals.  (+info)

Genomic evolution, patterns of global dissemination, and interspecies transmission of human and simian T-cell leukemia/lymphotropic viruses. (4/681)

Using both env and long terminal repeat (LTR) sequences, with maximal representation of genetic diversity within primate strains, we revise and expand the unique evolutionary history of human and simian T-cell leukemia/lymphotropic viruses (HTLV/STLV). Based on the robust application of three different phylogenetic algorithms of minimum evolution-neighbor joining, maximum parsimony, and maximum likelihood, we address overall levels of genetic diversity, specific rates of mutation within and between different regions of the viral genome, relatedness among viral strains from geographically diverse regions, and estimation of the pattern of divergence of the virus into extant lineages. Despite broad genomic similarities, type I and type II viruses do not share concordant evolutionary histories. HTLV-I/STLV-I are united through distinct phylogeographic patterns, infection of 20 primate species, multiple episodes of interspecies transmission, and exhibition of a range in levels of genetic divergence. In contrast, type II viruses are isolated from only two species (Homo sapiens and Pan paniscus) and are paradoxically endemic to both Amerindian tribes of the New World and human Pygmy villagers in Africa. Furthermore, HTLV-II is spreading rapidly through new host populations of intravenous drug users. Despite such clearly disparate host populations, the resultant HTLV-II/STLV-II phylogeny exhibits little phylogeographic concordance and indicates low levels of transcontinental genetic differentiation. Together, these patterns generate a model of HTLV/STLV emergence marked by an ancient ancestry, differential rates of divergence, and continued global expansion.  (+info)

Rhesus rhadinovirus establishes a latent infection in B lymphocytes in vivo. (5/681)

Recent DNA sequence analysis indicates that rhesus rhadinovirus (RRV) is a member of the lymphotropic gamma-2 herpesvirus family. To determine if RRV is lymphotropic, peripheral blood mononuclear cells from naturally infected monkeys were separated by immunomagnetic bead depletion and analyzed for the presence of RRV by virus isolation and nested PCR. The recovery and consistent detection of RRV in the CD20(+)-enriched fraction clearly demonstrates that B lymphocytes are a major site of virus persistence.  (+info)

Molecular cloning and cell-specific growth characterization of polymorphic variants of type D serogroup 2 simian retroviruses. (6/681)

Simian retroviruses (SRVs), the etiological agent of a spontaneous Simian acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, endemically infects large percentages of Asian macaques housed in biomedical research colonies and severely compromises the effective use of these species as a viable research animal. We recently described the molecular cloning of a serogroup 2 SRV, D2/RHE/OR, which causes mild immunosuppression in rhesus macaques. A restriction site variant, D2/RHE/OR/V1, has also been recovered from severely ill animals endemically infected with D2/RHE/OR. We now report the complete nucleotide sequences of D2/RHE/OR and D2/RHE/OR/V1. Both infectious molecular clones retain the genetic structure typical of type D SRVs (5' LTR-gag-prt-pol-env-3'LTR) and encode identically sized 8105-bp proviruses. D2/RHE/OR and D2/RHE/OR/V1 are 99.3% similar at the amino acid level, exhibiting only 17 residue differences, of which 10 are located in the envelope glycoproteins. The molecular clones and reciprocal chimeric viruses were used to assess the contribution of different genetic domains to virus infectivity in a T cell infection assay. These experiments indicate that D2/RHE/OR has a reduced ability to infect specific T cell lines, especially Hut-78 and MT-4 cells, and that the envelope gene is not the sole determinant of in vitro tropism.  (+info)

The incidence of japanese cedar pollinosis and sensitization to the pollen allergens among Japanese monkeys in a troop. (7/681)

The natural occurrence of Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica; CJ) pollinosis has been reported in Japanese monkeys (Macaca fuscata), an appropriate animal model for developing antipollinosis therapies. However, there has been no study on the incidence of Japanese cedar pollinosis in monkeys. To evaluate the incidence of CJ pollinosis in Japanese monkeys, we investigated the presence of pollinosis symptoms among monkeys in a troop, and the response to CJ allergens in pollinosis monkeys. We examined the presence of pollinosis symptoms in 272 monkeys in a troop throughout the CJ pollination season (February to April). Of the 272 monkeys, 21 (7.7%) showed pollinosis symptoms during the CJ pollen season. Blood samples were taken from the 21 monkeys that showed pollinosis symptoms and were tested for the presence of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody for CJ allergens. All 21 monkeys with CJ pollinosis had anti-CJ IgE. Of the 21 monkeys, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) could be taken from 12, all of which showed CJ allergen-specific PBMC proliferation. The incidence of CJ pollinosis in a troop was 7.7%. The monkeys with CJ pollinosis demonstrated specific IgE and PBMC proliferation for CJ allergens.  (+info)

Chantek (December 17, 1977 - August 7, 2017), born at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, was a male hybrid Sumatran/Bornean orangutan who mastered the use of a number of intellectual skills, including American Sign Language (ASL), taught by American anthropologists Lyn Miles and Ann Southcombe. In Malay and Indonesian, cantik (pronounced chanteek) means "lovely" or "beautiful". Born at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Chantek was transferred to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) when he was nine months old. Miles was the director of a research project to study apes, and she and a few student volunteers cared for him the first several months after his arrival. Dr. Miles taught him his first signs, "food-eat" and "drink". Soon after this her teaching schedule made it necessary to hire an assistant, Ann Southcombe. Ann had experience raising seven baby gorillas at the Cincinnati Zoo and was the first "mother" and "teacher" for Michael, ...

COVINGTON- A USDA investigator, looking into a bacterial infection in two animals at the Tulane National Primate Research Center, has possibly contracted the bacteria. News on NewsHub.org
How the captive environment influences the behavior of animals is relevant to the well-being of captive animals. Captivity diverges from the natural environment in many ways, and one goal of enrichment practices is to encourage species-typical behavior in these unnatural environments. This study investigated the influence of grass vs. gravel substrate on activity budgets and degree of hair loss in seven groups of captive rhesus macaques housed in outdoor enclosures at the California National Primate Research Center. Groups having grass substrate spent a greater proportion of their time foraging and a smaller proportion of time grooming compared with groups having gravel substrate. Increased time spent grooming in gravel enclosures may have contributed to significantly greater hair loss in those enclosures. A causal relationship between ground substrate on foraging and grooming, and therefore hair loss, is strengthened by similar changes in activity budgets and hair loss in a single group that ...

The new study, which was undertaken at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center of Emory University in Georgia, looked at female rhesus monkeys.. The scientists put 45 unrelated monkeys that had never met into new social groups, and watched how the monkeys treated each other to see who did the bullying and who cowered.. The monkeys in the newly created groups formed a pecking order of seniority, with those who were introduced to the groups earlier usually ranking higher than those who came later.. The immune cells were then taken from the monkeys and measured the activity of ...
Researchers at the Allen Institute for Brain Science have published an in-depth analysis of a comprehensive molecular atlas of brain development in the non-human primate. This analysis uncovers features of the genetic code underlying brain development in our close evolutionary relative, while revealing distinct features of human brain development by comparison. The study is based on the NIH Blueprint Non-Human Primate (NHP) Atlas, a publicly available resource created by the Allen Institute and colleagues at the University of California, Davis and the California National Primate Research Center. This resource enables researchers to understand the underpinnings of both healthy brain development and many neuropsychiatric diseases. Analysis of the atlas is featured this week in the journal Nature ...

Inherited retinal degenerations are a common cause of untreatable blindness worldwide, with retinitis pigmentosa and cone dystrophy affecting approximately 1 in 3500 and 1 in 10,000 individuals, respectively. A major limitation to the development of effective therapies is the lack of availability of animal models that fully replicate the human condition. Particularly for cone disorders, rodent, canine, and feline models with no true macula have substantive limitations. By contrast, the cone-rich macula of a nonhuman primate (NHP) closely mirrors that of the human retina. Consequently, well-defined NHP models of heritable retinal diseases, particularly cone disorders that are predictive of human conditions, are necessary to more efficiently advance new therapies for patients. We have identified 4 related NHPs at the California National Primate Research Center with visual impairment and findings from clinical ophthalmic examination, advanced retinal imaging, and electrophysiology consistent with ...

If the same pattern is found in people infected with HIV, the finding could lead to a treatment strategy that slows the production of this restraining type of T cell. This would let the immune soldiers go after the virus more aggressively.. The scientists dont know if the simian virus is directly causing the build-up of the inhibitory T cells, called regulatory T cells, but in any case, reducing regulatory T-cell production could boost the bodys resistance to the evasive virus.. The research was a collaboration among scientists at the Cincinnati Childrens Hospital, UC Davis School of Medicine, and the California National Primate Center.. Regulatory T cells, or Tregs, normally tamp down immune-system attacks, presumably to prevent an over-active assault that can cause harmful inflammation or auto-immune disease. The scientists suspect that the high number of Treg cells in the infected primates might prevent their immune systems from mounting a full-on attack against the virus.. The researchers ...

Mustached tamarins, being callitrichines, have distinguishing features that set them apart from other New World monkeys. These include their diminutive body size and the presence of claw-like nails on all digits except the hallux. Mustached tamarins have also lost both their upper and lower 3rd molars and the hypocones on their upper molars. The dental formula is 2.1.3.2 / 2.1.3.2. Tamarins have spatulate incisors that are shorter than their canines, unlike marmosets which have incisors and canines of more similar size. The labial and lingual sides of their incisors are also thickened with enamel. Mustached tamarins have jet black pelage on their body and tail and a characteristic white stripe on their upper lip, which gives the appearance of a "white mustache." Mustached tamarins do not have prehensile tails. Mustached tamarins do not exhibit sexual dimorphism and there are only minor differences in body and canine size between males and females. On average, adult male mustached tamarins weigh ...

Aug 1, 2013--Press release from the California National Primate Research Center. Collaborative efforts add critical information to understanding effects of BPA. BPA (bisphenol A), is used in the manufacturing of various plastics and food packaging, consumer products, some paper receipts, and medical devices. It is controversial because it exerts weak, but detectable, hormone-like properties which can mimic estrogen and may lead to far-ranging negative health effects including increased cardiovascular disease and diabetes in adults, increased cancer rates, including breast cancer, neurological difficulties, and hormonal and reproductive issues in both sexes and at all stages of life.. Recent results from research at the California National Primate Research Center (CNPRC) have shown that fetal BPA?exposure during a critical window of susceptibility in the third trimester, at levels similar to those measured in human blood, caused an increase in mucin genes and mucous cell maturation in the lungs ...

Michael Budkie, executive director of the Ohio-based group Stop Animal Exploitation Now!, said UC Davis and USDA did not respond to an anonymous whistleblower complaint about deaths in the center�s outdoor enclosures. As a result, he said, at least 36 more animals died under similar circumstances. "Obviously, there are issues within UC Davis with regard to how they�re taking care of the animals," Budkie said at a news conference in Davis, "but in this situation the more serious question is: How is it that the USDA could go in and do an investigation, see that ...

Not much going on out here in the Sacto Valley, location of UC Davis Primate Research Center and School of Comparative Medicine (located @ intersection County Road 98 & Hutchinson). Apparently the enlightened scientists at UCD Primate Research still believe that they are able to discover medical treatments by subjecting rhesus macaques and other primates and/or monkeys to bizarre and cruel animal experimentation claimed to benefit humans. Though humans are also primates, we are not identical in physiology and therefore primate testing will not always produce accurate results. This discrepency often comes out after the novel pharma product is released to the consumer market. Meanwhile the primates obtained for research are often hijacked from their native rainforest homes by economically disadvantaged gangs of poachers ...
... - MADISON, Wis. - University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers studying monkeys have shown that one infection with Zika virus protects against future infection, though pregnancy may drastically prolong the time the virus stays in the body.. The researchers, led by UW-Madison pathology Professor David OConnor, published a study today (June 28, 2016) in the journal Nature Communications describing their work establishing rhesus macaque monkeys at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center as a model for studying the way Zika virus infections may progress in people.. The team of UW and Duke University scientists - which includes specialists in emergent and insect-borne diseases, genetics and immunology, pediatrics and pregnancy - have been working with infected monkeys for months.. "What weve shown in the monkey model matches a lot of what people have observed in epidemiological studies of humans," says Emma Mohr, a pediatric infectious disease fellow at UW-Madison and first author on ...
When a single monkey at the California National Primate Research Center in Davis fell ill with pneumonia, it would have been hard to predict that within just a few weeks 19 monkeys would be dead, and three humans sick. But, that is precisely what happened in May 2009 during the Davis outbreak. Researchers have finally learned where the virus originated, which shows that this is the first ever recorded case of an adenovirus jumping from monkeys to humans. An adenovirus is a large DNA-based virus, while most other viruses are RNA-based. Adenoviruses are responsible for colds and respiratory infections in humans, in addition to many different illnesses in animals like dogs, horses, pigs, and cattle. But it didnt seem that this type of virus could jump between species. That is, until that single monkey, an adult male titi monkey, started to cough. Within 2 months 23 or the 65 titi monkeys were sick (19 would die) and researchers were left puzzled by what they identified as a completely new ...
Necropsy records and associated clinical histories from the rhesus macaque colony at the California National Primate Research Center were reviewed to identify mortality related to cardiac abnormalities involving left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Subtle histologic cardiac lesions included Ezetimibe karyomegaly and increased cardiac myocyte diameter. Pedigree analyses based on rhesus macaque LVH probands suggested a strong genetic predisposition for the condition. In humans hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is defined by the presence of unexplained left ventricular hypertrophy associated with diverse clinical outcomes ranging from asymptomatic disease to sudden death. Although the overall risk of disease complications such as sudden death end-stage heart failure and stroke is usually low (1% to 2%) in patients with HCM the absolute risk can vary dramatically. Prima facie comparison of HCM and LVH suggest that further study may allow the development of spontaneously occurring LVH in rhesus ...
Genetically modified organisms have come to be synonymous with corn and soy (and the brands behind the recent proliferation of GMOS such as Monsanto). But the practice of altering DNA and cellular structures doesnt stop at plant seeds; researchers at the Oregon National Primate Research Centre at Oregon Health and Science University have successfully genetically modified monkeys.
Cloaking immune cells with antibodies that block T cell trafficking to the gut can substantially reduce the risk of viral transmission in a non-human primate model of HIV infection, scientists report.. The findings suggest that drugs that are already in clinical trials for inflammatory bowel diseases might be effective in the treatment or prevention of HIV infection.. The results were published Monday in Nature Medicine.. "We were surprised by the effects that we observed," says senior author Aftab Ansari, PhD, professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at Emory University School of Medicine and Yerkes National Primate Research Center.. "Our goal was to demonstrate that blocking CD4+ T cell trafficking to gut tissues could decrease the level of virus in the gut and help mount an effective immune response, but we found that administration of the antibody could actually prevent transmission. The results of this study suggest that this form of therapy could counteract pathologies that lead to ...

Many animals, ranging from the rat to the puffer fish, have had their genome sequenced, and now humankinds closest living relative, the chimpanzee, has joined the group. The publication of a draft sequence of this primates genome today in the journal Nature provides the most detailed look yet at the similarities, and differences, between humans and chimps. Previous studies comparing DNA between the two analyzed randomly selected regions of the genetic codes that comprised around 500 base pairs each. The Chimpanzee Sequencing and Analysis Consortium, made up of 67 scientists from around the world, set out to catalogue the chimps entire genome, which contains some three billion base pairs. The researchers studied the DNA of Clint, a male chimp that lived at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta, Ga., until he passed away at the age of 24. Using the shotgun sequencing approach, they mapped 94 percent of the genome with a high degree of certainty, covering some parts of the ...
The U.S. National Institutes of Healths (NIH) plan to transfer an estimated 186 chimpanzees from the Alamogordo Primate Facility (APF) in New Mexico to the Southwest National Primate Research Center in Texas, moving them from a holding facility to a lab where they will be more readily available for invasive research.. Before living at APF, these individuals endured years of research or use as "breeders" to make babies to be sent into research. New Mexico citizens and supporters nationwide; animal protection groups; actor Gene Hackman, who has a home in New Mexico; and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson have all joined in urging the NIH to halt their transfer plans.. Recently, Governor Richardson met with officials at the NIH to urge them to keep the chimpanzees in New Mexico and to convert APF into a sanctuary. In his press release following this meeting, Governor Richardson stated, "While it appears they are holding steadfast to their position, I am holding steadfast to mine. I will continue ...

In the early stages of brain development prior to birth, brain stem cells, also known as neural stem cells, will differentiate into neurons," explained Larry Sherman, Ph.D., an associate scientist in the Division of Neuroscience at the Oregon National Primate Research Center and an adjunct associate professor of cell and developmental biology in the OHSU School of Medicine. "In later stages, these same stem cells suddenly start becoming glial cells, which perform a number of functions that include supporting the neurons. We wanted to find out what factors cause this switch in differentiation. We also wanted to determine if the process can be controlled and used as a possible therapy. What amazed us is that it turns out a single gene may be responsible for this incredibly important task ...

Meanwhile, in the United States, scientists at an Army research center and elsewhere were testing plasma to determine if the virus at the Texas Primate Center had spread to monkeys housed in a separate building.. If they discover that it has spread, all 50 monkeys in the other building will be killed.. Late last week, it was determined that two monkeys imported from the Philippines and kept at the center were infected with Ebola Reston, a strain that is infectious to monkeys but not to humans. All of that original group of 50 monkeys have been killed.. However, at least two monkeys housed in the separate building now have turned up sick.. Electron microscope tests at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases indicate at least one of those monkeys has the Ebola Reston virus. Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, however, have been unable to detect the virus in the sick monkeys.. The Ebola Reston virus is named for a 1989 outbreak in ...

Bump, bump, bump. That is the sound of Frans de Waal taking humankind down a few rungs.. In so doing, he reveals an animal world capable of greater cognitive sophistication than we imagine. De Waal-Charles Howard Candler Professor of Psychology and director of the Living Links Center at Yerkes National Primate Research Center-unfurls this challenge to our collective ego in the book Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? and in "What I Learned from Tickling Apes," an opinion piece that ran in the New York Times on April 8.. The Scala Naturae ("ladder/stairway of nature") is a concept derived from Plato, Aristotle, and other early philosophers. Humankind found itself solidly and smugly in the fourth position-just down from God, the angels, and demons, but clearly the better of all else in the universe, including animals.. The scientific work of recent decades, though, argues otherwise as formerly sacrosanct notions-that we alone have a sense of self, the ability to design tools, or ...

These isolates are related to the prototypic type D retrovirus, Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (MPMV). SRV has been isolated from many macaque species including rhesus, cynomolgus, and pig-tailed monkeys. Although all macaque species appear susceptible to all serotypes, some general serotype-host species associations have been recognized. Cynomolgus and pig-tailed macaques are predominantly infected with serotype 2, while in rhesus SRV-1 is the predominant serotype. Prevalence of SRV infection in captive populations of macaques is variable. Geographic origin of animals, as well as management and husbandry practices, are factors influencing the level of SRV endemicity in macaque populations.. SRV has a broad cellular tropism, including both lymphoid and non-lymphoid tissues. SRV can be demonstrated in many tissues and organs and has been isolated from many body fluids, ...
In 2002, an outbreak of West Nile virus infection occurred in the state of Louisiana in which 319 human cases of WNV-associated illness were reported. Most of these cases happened in the southeastern portion of the state, including St. Tammany Parish. The Tulane National Primate Research Center (TNPRC) is located in St. Tammany Parish and houses large outdoor breeding colonies of baboons and macaques. A serological survey of primates in these breeding colonies indicated that approximately 36% of the nonhuman primates were infected with WNV during the 2002 transmission season (Ratterree et al., 2003). Implications of this study are that nonhuman primates can be as susceptible to West Nile virus infection as humans, and captive primate populations can be a potential source of viral carriers ...

A novel drug developed by Gilead Sciences and tested in an animal model at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute in San Antonio suppresses hepatitis B virus infection by stimulating the immune system and inducing loss of infected cells. In a study conducted at Texas Biomeds Southwest National Primate Research Center, researchers found that the immune modulator GS-9620, which targets a receptor on immune cells, reduced both the virus levels and the number of infected liver cells in chimpanzees chronically infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV). Chimpanzees are the only species other than humans that can be infected by HBV. Therefore, the results from this study were critical in moving the drug forward to human clinical trials which are now in progress. The new report, co-authored by scientists from Texas Biomed and Gilead Sciences, was published online on February 14, 2013 in Gastroenterology. Gilead researchers had previously demonstrated that the same therapy could induce a cure of hepatitis ...
Little is known of the impact of Fc receptor (FcR) polymorphism in macaques on the binding of human (hu)IgG, and nothing is known of this interaction in the pig-tailed macaque (Macaca nemestrina), which is used in preclinical evaluation of vaccines and therapeutic Abs. We defined the sequence and huIgG binding characteristics of the M. nemestrina activating FcγRIIa (mnFcγRIIa) and inhibitory FcγRIIb (mnFcγRIIb) and predicted their structures using the huIgGFc/huFcγRIIa crystal structure. Large differences were observed in the binding of huIgG by mnFcγRIIa and mnFcγRIIb compared with their human FcR counterparts. MnFcγRIIa has markedly impaired binding of huIgG1 and huIgG2 immune complexes compared with huFcγRIIa (His(131)). In contrast, mnFcγRIIb has enhanced binding of huIgG1 and broader specificity, as, unlike huFcγRIIb, it avidly binds IgG2. Mutagenesis and molecular modeling of mnFcγRIIa showed that Pro(159) and Tyr(160) impair the critical FG loop interaction with huIgG. The ...
Macaca fascicularis (cynomolgus, crab-eating, or long-tail macaque) is one of the most popular primate species used in biomedical research, and is closely related to Macaca mulatta (rhesus macaque). The draft sequence of the Macaca mulatta genome, which has an evolutionary important position, was published in 2007 [1].. Transcriptiome data broadens the application of genome sequences. Compared with several millions of human transcript sequences, macaque transcriptome data has only been analyzed in a limited numbers of studies [2-6]. A complete list of macaque genes will be beneficial for performing genetic studies using macaques in the future. We aim to elucidate all the macaque transcripts that correspond to human genes, which have been widely accepted as reference sequences, such as the RefSeq sequences [7].. We have published expressed sequence tag (EST) and full-length sequences, which were obtained from cDNA libraries of brain and testis of Macaca fascicularis, using a variety of research ...

The impact of maternal kinship on social behaviour has been studied in detail for many primate species, but it is difficult to assess the importance of kin selection in shaping the evolution of social behaviour when studies are limited to maternal kin, completely ignoring paternal kinship. This thesis aimed to investigate the extent of paternal kinship and its impact on the social relationships among adult females in one group of free-ranging rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) living on the island of Cayo Santiago. The main findings can be summarised as follows: Firstly, in order to access the extent of paternal kinship, paternity has been analysed for all infants of the study group born between 1993 and 1998. Results revealed that male reproduction was highly skewed over the study period as few males have sired a high number of offspring, but the majority of potential sires have sired no or few offspring. This created a kinship structure in which nearly all animals born during the study period ...

phys.org  A new study has been published that suggests babies are physically affected by the stress level of their mother during pregnancy. It has been previously found that adversity in the womb enhances or hampers offspring development and performance. Researchers from The Universities of New Mexico and Göttingen, as well as the German Primate Center, have now proposed a hypothesis that largely predicts why there are highly variable patterns in the growth rates of disadvantaged offspring across 719 studies on 21 mammal species. The idea is that prenatal stress affects offspring in two different ways depending on the timing of the stressor during pregnancy—yielding different outcomes before birth, after birth, and after weaning, says Andreas Berghänel, an evolutionary anthropologist at The University of New Mexico and lead author of the study. For example, prenatal maternal stress late in gestation causes mothers to invest less energy in their offspring, which leads to slower

According to the first-ever global burden estimates for melioidosis, the disease is sharply underreported in 45 endemic countries, its probably endemic in 34 more, and conditions are suitable for the disease in parts of the United States and Japan.. The study, published today in Nature Microbiology, has practical implications for the United States, given the 2014 outbreak linked to the Tulane Primate Research Center in Louisiana.. The findings are based on reports of human and animal cases, reports of Burkholderia pseudomallei-the bacterium that causes the disease-in the environment, and modeling that takes into account factors such as environmental suitability.. Researchers estimate that there are about 165,000 cases each year worldwide, 89,000 of them fatal, a level that calls for new policy and public health steps to battle the disease, they write.. The report includes a map of highest-risk zones, which include Southeast and South Asia, tropical Australia, west sub-Saharan Africa, and South ...
Behavioral observations on a large group of free-ranging rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) were carried out on Cayo Santiago from January I968 through December I969 and from October through December I970. Records of mating activity (single mounts, mount series, copulations) indicated that genealogical mating activity on Cayo Santiago had the following characteristics : (I) 5.4% of all recorded mount series and copulations involved mother-son pairs; (2) mating was observed in 3I% of 26 individual pairs of mothers and sons; (3) mating was seen in I2% of 42 individual pairs of brothers and sisters; (4) of I0 instances of mother-son mating, seven involved pairs in which the mother was dominant to the son; (5) mating in mother-son and brother-sister pairs occurred in high and low ranking genealogies within the group; (6) with two exceptions, all three to five-year old males who did engage in sexual activity with their mothers did not mate with non-related females during that breeding season; and (7) with one

O gênero Saguinus é um táxon de primatas sul-americanos da família Cebidae e subfamília Callitrichinae. Suas espécies são conhecidas popularmente por sagui e ocorrem na bacia Amazônica, noroeste da Colômbia e sul do Panamá e nas Guianas. O gênero é um grupo monofilético, e aparentemente, é mais relacionado a gênero Leontopithecus. Diversos dados moleculares corroboram com a hipótese, sugerindo Saguinus compartilha um ancestral comum com os mico-leões, mas não é muito claro se compartilha com Callimico também. Atualmente, muitas subespécies de Saguinus midas, Saguinus nigricollis, Saguinus mystax, Saguinus bicolor, Saguinus oedipus são consideradas como espécies propriamente ditas por muitos autores.

Background: Although pig-tailed macaques (Macaca nemestrina) have been used in AIDS research for years, less is known about the early immunopathogenic events in this species, as compared to rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta). Similarly, the events in early infection are well-characterized for simian immunodeficiency viruses (SIV), but less so for chimeric simian-human immunodeficiency viruses (SHIV), although the latter have been widely used in HIV vaccine studies. Here, we report the consequences of intrarectal infection with a CCR5-tropic clade C SHIV-1157ipd3N4 in pig-tailed macaques. Results: Plasma and cell-associated virus was detectable in peripheral blood and intestinal tissues of all four pig-tailed macaques following intrarectal inoculation with SHIV-1157ipd3N4. We also observed a rapid and irreversible loss of CD4+ T cells at multiple mucosal sites, resulting in a marked decrease of CD4:CD8 T cell ratios 0.5-4 weeks after inoculation. This depletion targeted subsets of CD4+ T cells ...

In a recent serological survey among 143 ex-captive orang-utans two individuals were found that reacted positive in an ELISA detecting antibodies which cross-react with human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) antigens. Infection of both animals with an HTLV-I or simian T-lymphotropic virus (STLV)-like virus was confirmed by Western blot analysis. A third wild-caught animal, which was not part of the original serological survey, was also found to be infected with an HTLV-related virus in a diagnostic PCR assay and Western blot assay. Nucleotide sequence analysis of the 709 bp PCR fragment from the tax/rex region of the HTLV/STLV genome confirmed infection of orang-utans with an STLV similar to but clearly distinct from other Asian STLVs.. ...
