Disease-specific changes in reelin protein and mRNA in neurodegenerative diseases
Reelin is an extracellular glycoprotein that modulates neuronal function and synaptic plasticity in the adult brain. Decreased levels of Reelin activity have been postulated as a key factor during ...
Evaluation of P22 antigenic complex for the immuno-diagnosis of Tuberculosis in BCG vaccinated and unvaccinated goats
(Frontiers in Veterinary Science, 2020-07-03)
Current eradication strategies of tuberculosis (TB) in goats mainly rely on the single intradermal tuberculin test (SIT) and single intradermal cervical comparative tuberculin tests (SICCTs). TB vaccination ...
Immunogenicity and protection against Mycobacterium caprae challenge in goats vaccinated with BCG and revaccinated after one year
Vaccination has been proposed as a supplementary tool for the control of tuberculosis in livestock. The long-term immunogenicity elicited by bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) and the efficacy of revaccination ...
Phylogenetic relationships investigation of Mycobacterium caprae strains from sympatric wild boar and goats based on whole genome sequencing
(Transboundary and Emerging Diseases, 2020-09-05)

Mixtures of prion substrains in natural scrapie cases revealed by ovinised murine models
(Scientific Reports, 2020-03-19)
Phenotypic variability in prion diseases, such as scrapie, is associated to the existence of prion strains, which are different pathogenic prion protein (PrPSc) conformations with distinct pathobiological ...
