Abstract null null Human pegivirus type 1 (HPgV-1) is a non-pathogenic RNA virus in the Flaviviridae family that usually occurs as a co-infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV), though some evidence suggests it may play a role in certain cancers. The present study aimed to determine the prevalence of HPgV-1 infection in Iraqi anti-HCV IgG-positive patients, the risk factors associated with this infection, and the genotype of local isolates of this virus. null A total of ...

Abstract null null Human metapneumovirus (HMPV), an unsegmented negative-strand RNA virus, is the second most detected respiratory pathogen and one of the leading causes of respiratory illness in infants and immunodeficient individuals. HMPV infection of permissive cells in culture triggers a transient IFN response, which is efficiently suppressed later in infection. We report that two structural glycoproteins of the virus – namely G (Glycoprotein) and SH (Small Hydrophobic) – suppress the type ...

Abstract null null Avian hepatitis E virus (aHEV) is the causative agent of an important disease of broiler breeders and layers. aHEV cannot be readily propagated in cell culture and is characterised primarily by sequencing of amplicons generated through several RT-PCRs that target individual genes. This study aims to uncover the origin of current Australian aHEV isolates based on whole genome sequencing using clinical liver tissues. Complete genome sequences of the two aHEV isolates were assemb...

In less than two years since SARS-CoV-2 emerged, the new coronavirus responsible for COVID-19, has accumulated a great number of mutations. Many of these mutations are located in the Spike protein and some of them confer to the virus higher transmissibility or partial resistance to antibody mediated neutralization. Viral variants with such confirmed abilities are designated by WHO as Variants of Concern (VOCs). The aim of this study was to monitor the introduction of variants and VOCs in Venezue...

Abstract null null Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by T. gondii, a protozoa which affects humans and animals and is widely distributed worldwide. In humans, there is great concern due to the serious consequences that can occur in the infection of pregnant women and the newborn. The early diagnosis of gestational toxoplasmosis is important for treatment to be carried out in order to prevent vertical transmission or reduce damage. The diagnosis can be made through the detection of antibodies in ...

A small non-coding, evolutionarily conserved regulatory RNA molecule known as microRNA (miRNA) regulates various cellular activities and pathways. MicroRNAs remain evolutionarily conserved in different species of same taxa. They are present in all organisms including viruses. Viral miRNAs are small, less conserved and less stable and have higher negative minimal folding free energy than miRNAs of different organisms. The size of viral precursor miRNA is approximately 60-119 nucleotides in length...

Abstract null null In the last decade, Multi-drug resistance (MDR)-associated infections of Acinetobacter baumannii have grown worldwide. A cost-effective preventative strategy against this bacterium is vaccination. This study has presented five novel vaccine candidates against A. baumannii produced using the reverse vaccinology method. BLASTn was done to identify the most conserved antigens. PSORTb 3.0.2 was run to predict the subcellular localization of the proteins. The initial screening and ...

Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) is an RNA virus that incurs severe economic costs to swine industries worldwide. This study was conducted to investigate the genetic diversity among CSFV strains circulating in Vietnam, with a focus on their genetic variants relative to four vaccine strains. Samples from clinical cases were collected from different provinces of Central and Southern Vietnam from 2017 to 2019. 21 CSFV-positive samples were selected for amplification and sequencing of the full-len...

Abstract null null The emergence and worldwide distribution of carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii strains has become a major public health threat. The objective of this study was to investigate the clonal relatedness of A. baumannii isolates collected from clinical and extra-hospital environments in Mthatha, South Africa. Forty carbapenem-resistant isolates comprising of clinical (20) and extra-hospital (20) were identified and tested for antimicrobial susceptibility. Detection of carb...
