..These findings suggest that the continued surveillance of the influenza virus in dogs is warranted because humans have close contact with dogs, which may promote viral transmission. ..
Lee I, Kim H, Seo S. Porcine mast cells infected with H1N1 influenza virus release histamine and inflammatory cytokines and chemokines. Arch Virol. 2017;162:1067-1071 pubmed publisher
..Our results suggest that mast cells could be involved in enhancing influenza-virus-mediated disease in infected animals. ..

..In the lung, TLR-15 was dominantly induced. Taken together, it seems that H9N2 infections efficiently induce inflammatory cytokines and TLRs in trachea, lung and intestine of chickens. ..

. Transmissibility of novel H7N9 and H9N2 avian influenza viruses between chickens and ferrets. Virology. 2014;450-451:316-23 pubmed publisher
..Taken together, our results suggest that chickens may be a poor agent of transmission for the H7N9 virus to other chickens and to mammals, including humans. ..
