A rapid detection assay based on reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) has been developed for detecting porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV). The RT-LAMP assay utilized a set of six primers to amplify the open reading frame 6 (ORF6) of the PRRSV. The amplified products were analyzed by agarose gel(More)
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) is a double-stranded RNA virus that causes immunosuppressive disease in young chickens. Thousands of cases of IBDV infection are reported each year in South China, and these infections can result in considerable economic losses to the poultry industry. To monitor variations of the virus during the outbreaks, 30 IBDVs(More)
Infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT), caused by infectious laryngotracheitis virus (ILTV), is an Office International des Epizooties (OIE) notifiable disease. However, we have not clearly understood the dynamic distribution, tissue tropism, pathogenesis, and replication of ILTV in chickens. In this report, we investigated the dynamic distribution and tissue(More)
The constant outbreaks of influenza in a global scale have aroused great concern all over the world. Vaccine has been the most effective and economic means against influenza. However, the broad tropism and high mutation of influenza viruses have limited the effectiveness of influenza vaccines. Current influenza virus vaccines provide effective protection(More)
