Development of a Novel Double Antibody Sandwich ELISA for Quantitative Detection of Porcine Deltacoronavirus Antigen
Porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) can cause diarrhea and dehydration in newborn piglets. Here, we developed a double antibody sandwich quantitative enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (DAS-ELISA) for detection of PDCoV by using a specific monoclonal antibody against the PDCoV N protein and an anti-PDCoV rabbit polyclonal antibody. Using DAS-ELISA, the detection limit of recombinant PDCoV N protein and virus titer were approximately 0.5 ng/mL and…Read More
Lentivector Knockdown of CCR5 in Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells Confers Functional and Persistent HIV-1 Resistance in Humanized Mice.
Gene-engineered CD34(+) hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) can be utilized to generate an HIV-1-resistant immune system. Nevertheless, a sure threshold of transduced HSPCs is perhaps required for transplantation into mice for creating an HIV-resistant immune system. On this examine, we mixed CCR5 knockdown by a extremely environment friendly microRNA (miRNA) lentivector with pretransplantation number…Read More
