    ..The latter approach in addition detected only about one IFN-beta mRNA-containing cell per 2,000 PRV-stimulated porcine leukocytes, a frequency in the same range as that for leukocytes containing IFN-alpha mRNA. ..

    In order to develop recombinant porcine interferon beta with high bioactivity, the rare codes that encoded 3th, 7th and 164th amino acids of porcine interferon beta mature protein were mutant into bias codes of Pichia pastoris and then ..

    ..Therefore, poDDX41 is involved in the dsDNA- and dsDNA-virus-mediated type I IFN signaling pathway in porcine kidney cells. ..

    ..A further study showed that the CBP degradation by nsp1 was proteasome-dependent. Our data demonstrate that PEDV modulates the host innate immune responses by degrading CBP and suppressing ISGs expression. ..

    ..In addition, results of FMDV infection in mouse embryonic fibroblast cells derived from gene knockout mice lacking the gene for RNase L(-/-) or PKR(-/-) or both indicated an important role for PKR in the inhibition of FMDV replication. ..

    ..The immuno-pressure of swIFN-? accelerated genetic variation on PRRSV ORF5, NSP2 and ORF3, but not on the ORF6 gene. PRRSV NSP2 and ORF5 genes may play a key role in escaping from inhibition of swIFN-?. ..

    ..The data presented here may help us to better understand PRRSV pathogenesis. ..

    ..This study suggests that poIFIT3 plays a significant role in the clearance of SIV in pigs and potentiates IFN-β production. ..
