Simões, Margarida Pires

Studies on virus-host interactions are decisive to enhance our understanding on how African swine fever virus (ASFV) subverts cellular mechanisms, and also to better characterize host nucleus changes enabling this infection. Immunofluorescence studies and immunoblotting analysis of ASFV-infected cells, allowed us to identify the Ataxia telangiectasia mutated and Rad3-related (ATR) pathway as the specific DNA da...

Coelho, João Nuno Santos

African swine fever virus (ASFV) is a nucleo-cytoplasmic large DNA arbovirus and the single member of the family Asfarviridae. It infects soft ticks of the genus Ornithodoros as well as all members of the family Suidae, representing a global threat for pig husbandry for which there is currently no effective vaccine or treatment. Since the ASFV viral cycle is mainly cytoplasmic, it has been found/predicted to co...

Freitas, Ferdinando

African swine fever (ASF) is an infectious disease of domestic pigs and wild boars with mortality rates reaching up to 100% and is endemic in most of the Sub-Saharan countries. In 2007 it was introduced in Georgia and spread to neighbouring countries, reaching the Russian Federation, several European countries and, more recently, China and Vietnam (February 2019). Currently, there is neither a vaccine nor a tre...
