Sequence variability in the BLB2 region among guinea fowl and other poultry species

  The BLB2 gene is a predominantly expressed MHC class II gene in chicken and has not been characterized in guinea fowl. In view of the resistance of guinea fowl to most of the chicken diseases, nucleotide sequence variability in b1 and b2 domains of BLB2 gene was studied between guinea fowl and other poultry species such as chicken, quail, pheasant and duck. The b1 and b2 domain of BLB2...

Amplification and sequencing of Rosaceae expressed sequence tags (ESTs) as a resource for functional genomics databases

  A total of 30 successful ESTs (expressed sequenced tags) were amplified and sequenced to be intended as a resource for Rosaceae functional genomics data base. 23 EST were isolated from the amplification of Earlygold peach (Prunus persica) cultivar DNA, 5 ESTs were isolated from the amplification of Texas almond cultivar and two ESTs were isolated from the amplification of F1 DNA of their...

Rapid detection of Salmonella species in newborne calves by polymerase chain reaction

  Fecal samples collected from 85 diarrheic calves and 65 apparently healthy contact calves were examined for the presence of Salmonella species using bacteriological examination and fimA gene amplification assay (PCR). Salmonella were isolated from 43.53% of diarrheic calves and from 27.69% of apparently healthy contact calves.Salmonella typhimurium were isolated from...
