Viral diseases of bees in Greece

, : Viral diseases of bees in Greece. Ellenike Kteniatrike 26(4): 196-199

Sac brood disease was identified in 11 of 111 samples examined in 1983 at the Veterinary Institute at Thessaloniki. The increase of sac brood in Greece over the last 10 years is thought to be due to its transmission by Varroa jacobsoni. Paralysis, caused by a polymorphic virus 20-70 nm in size, appears in two forms. One exhibits symptoms related to the nervous system such as inability to fly and paralysis, the other causes morphological changes.

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are a class of RNAs that do not encode proteins. Recently, lncRNAs have gained special attention for their roles in various biological process and diseases. In an attempt to identify long intergenic non-coding RNAs (...

However, hygienic behaviour of A and C did not differ significantly...
