Badgers (Meles meles), cattle and bovine tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis): a hypothesis to explain the influence of habitat on the risk of disease transmission in southwest England

, : Badgers (Meles meles), cattle and bovine tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis): a hypothesis to explain the influence of habitat on the risk of disease transmission in southwest England. Proceedings. Biological Sciences 253(1338): 277-284

Environmental contamination by infected badger urine is thought to be the main mode of transmission of tuberculosis from badgers to cattle. Despite the introduction of badger control measures in 1975, many cattle in the southwest of England fail the tuberculin test.

Assembly and deposition of amyloid beta-protein (Abeta) in the brain is a fundamental process of Alzheimer's disease (AD). We previously hypothesized that GM1 ganglioside-bound Abeta (GAbeta) is an endogenous seed for Abeta assembly in brain....

In our study, we describe the gross anatomy of two striated-p...
