The authors say that this diversity also occurs among viruses linked to human and monkey AIDS, and that the current approach of growing viruses in vitro before study may not isolate
the more important strains.
indica (98% identity) and to other members of this tropical group of isolates
The phylogenetic tree also illustrates the difference of lineage between the Reunion Island isolates
and the Asian isolates
The analysis of the 3' terminus of VP1 gene of the remaining 5 cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and 3 nasopharyngeal isolates
showed that they were similar to the recently proposed EV75 serotype (5).
Resistance to ciprofloxacin has been found exceptionally in nontyphoidal Salmonella enterica isolates
and only in serotypes Typhimurium, Choleraesuis, and Schwarzengrund (1-8).
Compared with ONNV isolate
Gulu, the nsP3 sequence of our isolate
featured a glycine-encoding codon deletion (nt 5249-5251, according to ONNV strain Gulu numbering).
Typhimurium accounted for [approximately equal to] 40% of all human Salmonella isolates
8% and 96% identity at the nucleotide and amino acid level, respectively, with a TOSV isolate
from Italy (GenBank accession no.
We describe the first case of Japanese spotted fever and the first isolate
of spotted fever group rickettsia from a patient in South Korea.
Hemagglutination-inhibition (HI) and virus neutralization (VN) assays of acute- and convalescent-phase (11 and 45 days after the acute-phase sample) sera did not show evidence of sero-conversion against the patient's own isolate
, A/Ontario/RV1273/05 (HI titer = 8 and VN titer = 16 on all 3 test dates).
Highly pathogenic H5N1 virus genetically related to the A/Chicken/ Shantou/4231/03 (People's Republic of China) isolate
caused disease outbreaks in poultry in Japan from the end of December 2003 to March 2004 (4).
