Unraveling the Genetics of Bovine Johne's Disease $59.00
Authors: Chris P. Verschoor, Sameer D. Pant, Niel A. Karrow (University of Guelph, Guelph, ON) 
Book Description:
Johneís disease is a chronic, granulomatous enteritis of ruminants and some wild-type species that is caused by infection with Mycobacterium avium spp. paratuberculosis (MAP). This inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is characterized by a lengthy yet variable asymptomatic subclinical phase in which infected animals can transmit MAP to their progeny and herd mates; this is followed by a clinical phase characterized by chronic diarrhea, wasting, and eventually death. The impact of Johneís disease is particularly evident in the dairy and beef industries, where significant losses due to reduced productivity and fertility, mortality, and premature culling have been reported. This book addresses the genetics of this condition and its possible treatments.

Table of Contents:

1. MAP and the Bovine Immune Response

2. A Role for CD8+ and „š-T Cells in Early Infection

3. The Host Response during the sub-clinical phase of infection

4. Clinical phase

5. Pathological similarities between Johneís disease and Crohnís disease

6. A genetic basis for mammalian IBDs

7. Potential susceptibility loci conserved across mammalian IBDs

8. Impact of alternate mechanisms of gene regulation

9. Conclusion
