    ..The strong association between antibody reactivity to herpesvirus antigens and GTFP status in both captive-reared and free-ranging turtles is consistent with the hypothesis that the transmissible agent that causes GTFP is a herpesvirus. ..

    ..These observations suggest that a liquid-based preparation can be used to assess CMV infection morphologically, immunohistochemically, and by real-time PCR. ..

    ..SBWMV may enter primary xylem elements before cell death occurs and then move upward in the plant after the xylem has matured into hollow vessels. There is also evidence for lateral movement between adjacent xylem vessels. ..

    ..Sequences from all three sources were almost identical, and we therefore propose that the usual agent of inclusion body hepatitis in owls and falcons is columbid herpesvirus 1...
