  1. Munir M, Zohari S, Belak S, Berg M. Double-stranded RNA-induced activation of activating protein-1 promoter is differentially regulated by the non-structural protein 1 of avian influenza A viruses. Viral Immunol. 2012;25:79-85 pubmed publisher
    ..Comprehensive studies, focusing on the molecular mechanisms behind this differential inhibition, may facilitate exploration of the zoonotic and pathogenic potential of influenza A viruses. ..
  2. Munir M, Cortey M, Abbas M, Qureshi Z, Afzal F, Shabbir M, et al. Biological characterization and phylogenetic analysis of a novel genetic group of Newcastle disease virus isolated from outbreaks in commercial poultry and from backyard poultry flocks in Pakistan. Infect Genet Evol. 2012;12:1010-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Furthermore, these investigations emphasize the importance of continuous surveillance of ND in developing countries. ..
  3. Munir M, Zohari S, Metreveli G, Baule C, Belak S, Berg M. Alleles A and B of non-structural protein 1 of avian influenza A viruses differentially inhibit beta interferon production in human and mink lung cells. J Gen Virol. 2011;92:2111-21 pubmed publisher
    ..This study therefore expands the versatile nature of the NS1 protein in inhibiting IFN responses at multiple levels, by demonstrating for the first time that it occurs in a manner dependent on allele type...
  4. Munir M, Zohari S, Abbas M, Berg M. Sequencing and analysis of the complete genome of Newcastle disease virus isolated from a commercial poultry farm in 2010. Arch Virol. 2012;157:765-8 pubmed publisher
    ..These findings provide insight into the genetic nature of NDV circulating in Pakistan and are useful for both laboratory diagnosis and vaccine development for NDV...
