- A history of ovine pulmonary adenocarcinoma (jaagsiekte) and experiments leading to the deduction of the JSRV nucleotide sequenceD F York
Department of Virology, Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine, University of Natal, South Africa
Curr Top Microbiol Immunol 275:1-23. 2003..Histopathologically the sheep disease resembles human bronchiolar alveolar carcinoma and has been identified as a natural out bred animal model that could be used to study the human disease...
- Genomic mutations in the katG, inhA and aphC genes are useful for the prediction of isoniazid resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from Kwazulu Natal, South AfricaP Kiepiela
Department of Virology, University of Natal, Faculty of Medicine, Durban, South Africa
Tuber Lung Dis 80:47-56. 2000..We conclude that the frequency of the Ser315Thr katG mutation in the local strain population makes the PCR-RFLP MTB katG assay a reliable, rapid and useful method for detecting INH resistance...
- Characterisation of the pncA gene in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from Gauteng, South AfricaK S Bishop
Department of Virology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Natal, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Int J Tuberc Lung Dis 5:952-7. 2001..In PZase negative strains with no genetic changes which are resistant to 100 microg/ml and susceptible to 300 microg/ml, 300 microg/ml may be a more reliable breakpoint...
- Nucleotide sequence of the jaagsiekte retrovirus, an exogenous and endogenous type D and B retrovirus of sheep and goatsD F York
Laboratoire de Virologie, Faculte de Medecine Nord, Marseille, France
J Virol 66:4930-9. 1992..Southern blot studies show that closely related sequences are present in sheep and goat normal genomic DNA, indicating that JSRV could be endogenous in ovine and caprine species...
