    Emerging roles of chicken and viral microRNAs in avian disease

    MicroRNAs are short RNAs (~22 nt) expressed by plants, animals and viruses that regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally, and their importance is highlighted by distinct patterns of expression in many p...

    Multi-comparative systems biology analysis reveals time-course biosignatures of in vivo bovine pathway responses to B. melitensis, S. enterica Typhimurium and M. avium paratuberculosis

    To decipher the complexity and improve the understanding of host-pathogen interactions, biologists must adopt new system level approaches in which the hierarchy of biological interactions and dynamics can be s...

    Down-regulation of promoter methylation level of CD4 gene after MDV infection in MD-susceptible chicken line

    Marek’s disease virus (MDV) is an oncovirus that induces lymphoid tumors in susceptible chickens, and may affect the epigenetic stability of the CD4 gene. The purpose of this study was to find the effect of MDV i...

    Toll-Like Receptor 6 differential expression in two pig genetic groups vaccinated against Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae

    Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae is the etiologic agent of enzootic pneumonia, which causes important economic losses to swine industry. The Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are pattern-recognition receptors which detect micro...

    Transcription variants of SLA-7, a swine non classical MHC class I gene

    In pig, very little information is available on the non classical class I (Ib) genes of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) i.e. SLA-6, -7 and -8. Our aim was to focus on the transcription pattern of the S...

    Gene expression pattern in swine neutrophils after lipopolysaccharide exposure: a time course comparison

    Experimental exposure of swine neutrophils to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) represents a model to study the innate immune response during bacterial infection. Neutrophils can effectively limit the infecti...

    Cross reactive cellular immune responses in chickens previously exposed to low pathogenic avian influenza

    Avian influenza (AI) infection in poultry can result in high morbidity and mortality, and negatively affect international trade. Because most AI vaccines used for poultry are inactivated, our knowledge of immu...
