Quantitative Imaging Analysis of the Spatial Relationship between Antiretrovirals, RT-SHIV RNA, and Collagen in the Mesenteric Lymph Nodes of Nonhuman Primates.

Antimicrob Agents Chemother 2021 Mar 29. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Eshelman School of Pharmacy, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA

HIV persistence in tissue reservoirs is a major barrier to HIV cure. While antiretrovirals (ARVs) suppress viral replication, antiretroviral therapy (ART) interruption results in rapid rebound viremia that may originate from lymphoid tissues. To understand the relationship between anatomic distribution of ARV exposure and viral expression in lymph nodes, we performed mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) of 6 ARVs, RNAscope hybridization for viral RNA, and immunohistochemistry of collagen in mesenteric lymph nodes from 8 uninfected and 10 reverse transcriptase-simian/human immunodeficiency virus (RT-SHIV) infected rhesus macaque nonhuman primates (NHPs) dosed to steady-state with combination ART.

Genetic characterization of porcine sapoviruses isolated from pigs during a diarrhea outbreak in Iowa, 2019.

Transbound Emerg Dis 2021 Mar 29. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Department of Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State University, Ames, IA, 50011, USA.

Porcine Sapovirus (SaV) was first identified by electron microscopy in the United States in 1980 and has since been reported from both asymptomatic and diarrheic pigs usually in mixed infection with other enteric pathogens. SaV as the sole etiological agent of diarrhea in naturally infected pigs has not previously been reported in the United States. Here, we used four independent lines of evidence including metagenomics analysis, real-time RT-PCR (rRT-PCR), histopathology, and in situ hybridization to confirm porcine SaV genogroup III (GIII) as the sole cause of enteritis and diarrhea in pigs.

Phenotypic diversity of bread wheat lines with introgressions from the diploid cereal Aegilops speltoides for technological properties of grain and f lour.

Vavilovskii Zhurnal Genet Selektsii 2020 Nov;24(7):738-746

Institute of Cytology and Genetics of Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia.

The creation of varieties adapted to changing environmental conditions, resistant to various pathogens, and satisfying various grain purposes is impossible without using the genetic diversity of wheat. One of the ways to expand the genetic diversity of wheat is to introduce new variants of genes from the genetic pool of congeners and wild relatives into the genotypes of existing varieties. In this study, we used 10 lines from the Arsenal collection created on the genetic basis of the spring variety 'Rodina' and the diploid species Aegilops speltoides in the Federal Research Center "Nemchinovka" in 1994.
