    Timothy I Shaw
    Institute of Bioinformatics, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, USA
    PLoS ONE 7:e48472. 2012
    ..The Jamaican fruit bat transcriptome dataset is a resource that should provide additional candidate markers for studying bat evolution and ecology, and tools for analysis of the host response and pathology of disease...
  2. pmc Kinetics of immune responses in deer mice experimentally infected with Sin Nombre virus
    Tony Schountz
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, Colorado, USA
    J Virol 86:10015-27. 2012
    ..Together, these data suggest that a subtle immune response that fails to clear the virus occurs in deer mice...
  3. pmc Rapid field immunoassay for detecting antibody to Sin Nombre virus in deer mice
    Tony Schountz
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, Colorado 80639, USA
    Emerg Infect Dis 13:1604-7. 2007
    ..The assay specificity and sensitivity were comparable to those of a standard EIA. This test will permit identification of rodents with antibody to this and perhaps other hantaviruses...
  4. pmc Regulatory T cell-like responses in deer mice persistently infected with Sin Nombre virus
    Tony Schountz
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Northern Colorado, 1556 Ross Hall, Greeley, CO 80639, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:15496-501. 2007
    ..Such a response may have arisen as a mutually beneficial coadaptive evolutionary event between hantaviruses and their rodent reservoirs, so as to limit disease while also allowing the virus to persist...
  5. pmc Tacaribe virus causes fatal infection of an ostensible reservoir host, the Jamaican fruit bat
    Ann Cogswell-Hawkinson
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, Colorado, USA
    J Virol 86:5791-9. 2012
    ..Uninoculated cage mates failed to seroconvert, and viral RNA was not detected in their tissues, suggesting that transmission did not occur. Together, these data suggest that A. jamaicensis bats may not be a reservoir host for TCRV...

    Tiffany Richens
    Department of Biological Sciences, Mesa State College, Grand Junction, Colorado, 81502, USA
    BMC Immunol 9:62. 2008
    ..It is thought that these cytokines contribute to the pathogenesis of HCPS. LT is not expressed by virus-specific CD4+ T cells from infected deer mice, suggesting a limited role for this pathway in reservoir responses to hantaviruses...
  7. pmc Profiling helper T cell subset gene expression in deer mice
    Lauren Oko
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Northern Colorado, 1556 Ross Hall, Greeley, CO 80639, USA
    BMC Immunol 7:18. 2006
    ..A neutralizing IgG antibody response occurs, but the virus establishes a persistent infection. Limitations of detailed analysis of deer mouse immune responses to SNV are the lack of reagents and methods for evaluating such responses...

    J Virol 88:8319-31. 2014
    ..These data suggest that the rate of maturation of the immune response is substantially higher and of greater magnitude during ANDV infection, and these differences may account for clearance of ANDV and persistence of SNV...

    J Wildl Dis 39:287-98. 2003
    ..Overall, these data indicate that SNV trafficking is more likely at the local level, but some long-distance trafficking may be possible, especially where select habitat variables favor long-distance movements...
