We have characterized the Duffy gene in humans (Homo sapiens) and eight other mammalian taxa (Pan troglodytes-chimpanzee, Macaca mulattarhesus monkey, Pongo pygmaeus- orangutan, Rattus norvegicus-brown rat, Mus musculus--mouse, Monodelphis
domestica--opposum, Bos taurus--cow and Canis familiaris--dog) in detail and herewith present different analyses and infer phylogenetic positions of taxa in this gene.
Development of walking, swimming and neuronal connections after complete spinal cord transection in the neonatal opossum, Monodelphis
Susceptibility of small laboratory animals of various ages to fatal Thottapalayam virus meningoencephalitis * Age at Host species injection, Illness Mortality d onset, d rate, % Mus musculus 1 7 100 5 7 100 10 6 88 14 6 94 21 8 67 Meriones unguiculatus 1 9 100 5 11 100 11 7 80 16 14 100 Peromyscus maniculatus 4 11 100 Monodelphis
domestica 30 -- 0 * Animals of various ages were injected intracerebrally with 6,000 PFU of Thottapalayam virus strain VRC-66412 and examined daily for neurologic signs and death.
Effects of lead exposure on spatial learning and running speed in the short-tailed opossum, Monodelphis
Ultraviolet radiation A-induced precursors of cutaneous melanoma in monodelphis
In addition to the North American, or Virginia, opossum, they are taking great interest in a smaller South American cousin called Monodelphis
, the gray short-tailed opossum.
