Abstract

Northway virus replication has been detected in salivary glands of wild-caught Culiseta inornata and Aedes communis mosquitoes from the western Canadian Arctic after incubation at 4 degrees C for 9 to 11 months, and after incubation at 13 degrees C for 3 to 4 months after they received virus by oral ingestion or intrathoracic injection. Aedes hexodontus supported Northway virus replication after incubation at 13 degrees C for one month after intrathoracic injection. Aedes aegypti supported Northway virus replication after incubation at 13 degrees C or 23 degrees C for 6 to 28 days following intrathoracic injection. A larval isolate of California encephalitis virus (snowshoe hare subtype) multiplied in all 3 species of arctic mosquito after incubation at 13 degrees C for 1 to 3 months after virus was administered by oral ingestion or intrathoracic injection. Virus was detected in salivary glands of Cs. inornata after 329 days incubation at 4 degrees C after intrathoracic injection. Bunyavirus antigens in salivary glands of arctic and domestic mosquitoes were detected by the glucose oxidase immunoenzyme technique somewhat less frequently than by assay for virus infectivity.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Social Learning

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
