What's the difference between distemper and dyscrasy?
(v. t.) To temper or mix unduly; to make disproportionate; to change the due proportions of.
(v. t.) To derange the functions of, whether bodily, mental, or spiritual; to disorder; to disease.
(v. t.) To deprive of temper or moderation; to disturb; to ruffle; to make disaffected, ill-humored, or malignant.
(v. t.) To intoxicate.
(v. t.) To mix (colors) in the way of distemper; as, to distemper colors with size.
(v. t.) An undue or unnatural temper, or disproportionate mixture of parts.
(v. t.) Severity of climate; extreme weather, whether hot or cold.
(v. t.) A morbid state of the animal system; indisposition; malady; disorder; -- at present chiefly applied to diseases of brutes; as, a distemper in dogs; the horse distemper; the horn distemper in cattle.
(v. t.) Morbid temper of the mind; undue predominance of a passion or appetite; mental derangement; bad temper; ill humor.
(v. t.) Political disorder; tumult.
(v. t.) A preparation of opaque or body colors, in which the pigments are tempered or diluted with weak glue or size (cf. Tempera) instead of oil, usually for scene painting, or for walls and ceilings of rooms.
(v. t.) A painting done with this preparation.
(1) The ultrastructural features of demyelination in viral leukoencephalomyelitis of goats were compared with those described for demyelination that occurs in multiple sclerosis, experimental allergic encephalomyelitis, canine distemper encephalomyelitis, and that produced by diphtheria toxin.
(2) Four, 57 days old, African hunting dog puppies (Lycaon pictus) from one litter died within three weeks following vaccination with modified-live canine distemper virus (CDV) and killed canine adenovirus type 1, canine parvovirus and Leptospira icterohemorrhagiae and canicola.
(3) Particular attention is paid to the aetiology, pathogenesis and epizootiology as well as the prevention of distemper by vaccination.
(4) On inoculation of dogs, a species restricted for avipoxvirus replication, the recombinants elicited a protective immune response against a lethal canine distemper virus (CDV) challenge.
(5) The morphology and cellular localization of the structures resembled those seen in systemic lupus erythematosus in man, and in cultures of cells from tissue infected with canine distemper.
(6) A third group of dogs, characterized by chronic persistent infection, had intermediate levels of anitbody to canine distemper virus.
(7) Distemper-infected dogs with inherited C3 deficiency exhibited enhanced renal glomerular disease associated chiefly with deposition of IgM in mesengial regions vs. their homozygous normal CDV-infected littermates.
(8) Nucleocapsid (NC) variants expressed by the Onderstepoort strain of canine distemper virus (CDV) were ultrastructurally and biochemically characterized.
(9) Canine distemper virus was isolated from four animals and paramyxovirus nucleocapsids were observed by electron microscopy of feces from all affected black-footed ferrets.
(10) The conditions mentioned are: ticks, and tickborne diseases, rabies, distemper, feline panleukopenia, trypanosomiasis, hookworm and tumbu-fly infections.
(11) Canine distemper virus-immune complex-induced oligodendroglial pathology is thought to be mediated by toxic factors released from stimulated macrophages, this bystander effect demonstrated here in vitro may be relevant to the mechanisms of demyelination in vivo, in which virus persistence plays an important role.
(12) Evidence was obtained that the pathogenesis of experimental PDV-infection in harbour seals shares some features with those of canine distemper in terrestrial carnivores.
(13) Canine distemper virus was labelled with tritiated uridine and, following precipitation with saturated ammonium sulphate solution, was concentrated 66-fold by centrifugation through a discontinuous sucrose gradient.
(14) Messenger RNAs from Vero cells infected with the Onderstepoort strain of canine distemper virus (CDV) were cloned into the PstI site of plasmid pAT153.
(15) Weddell seals in the Antarctica had high neutralizing antibody titres to seal- and feline herpesvirus and none against phocine distemper virus.
(16) Changes in abundance at haul-out sites were followed, and data on the number of deaths collected, to describe the pattern and extent of mortality resulting from the 1988 phocine distemper virus outbreak in the Moray Firth common seal population.
(17) However, analogy with canine distemper virus (CDV) suggests that translation of the F protein starts at the sixth AUG codon in the mRNA sequence which is located at position 461, resulting in an F0 protein of exactly the same size (537 aa) as that of CDV.
(18) The presenting signs are described and the aetiology due to canine distemper, trauma and hypothyroidism mentioned.
(19) This effect does not appear to be as severe as that observed for feline leukemia virus of kittens nor as for canine distemper virus in dogs.
(20) Furthermore, a conserved region with about 100 amino acids was observed between PIV-4s and other paramyxoviruses, Newcastle disease virus (NDV), Sendai virus, mumps virus (MuV), PIV-3, BPIV-3, measles virus (MV), and canine distemper virus (CDV), indicating a common ancestor for these nine viruses.
(1) Papular mucinosis seems to be a systemic rather than a solely cutaneous disease and may be related to plasma-cell dyscrasis.
