Investigation of sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever virus infection in ruminants by PCR and competitive inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
Development of control measures for the gammaherpesviral disease of cattle known as sheep-associated malignant catarrhal fever (SA-MCF) has been hampered by a lack of accurate diagnostic tests eitherExpand

A Simpler, More Sensitive Competitive Inhibition Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay for Detection of Antibody to Malignant Catarrhal Fever Viruses
An earlier competitive inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (CI-ELISA) was developed for detection of specific antibody against malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) viruses (MCFV) in ruminants. InExpand

Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene of micro-organism WSU 86-1044 from an aborted bovine foetus reveals that it is a member of the order Chlamydiales: proposal of Waddliaceae fam. nov., Waddlia
The structural gene encoding the 16S rRNA of the new obligate intracellular organism presently designated WSU 86-1044T was sequenced and analysed to establish its phylogenetic relationships. The 16SExpand

Recognition of another member of the malignant catarrhal fever virus group: an endemic gammaherpesvirus in domestic goats.
A novel gammaherpesvirus in goats that is herein tentatively designated as caprine herpesvirus-2 was identified based on the sequence of a fragment from the herpesvirus DNA polymerase gene. SequenceExpand

Chronic arthritis in goats caused by a retrovirus.
A virus was isolated from an adult goat with chronic arthritis and shown to belong to the retrovirus group by electron microscopy and biochemical methods. Inoculation of the virus intoExpand

Isolation of a previously undescribed rickettsia from an aborted bovine fetus.
A previously undescribed obligate intracellular bacterium was isolated from an aborted bovine fetus. The organism was resistant to penicillin, replicated within cytoplasmic vacuoles, exhibitedExpand

A cloned DNA probe identifies Cowdria ruminantium in Amblyomma variegatum ticks.
Heartwater, caused by Cowdria ruminantium and transmitted by ticks of the genus Amblyomma, is a constraint to ruminant animal production in sub-Saharan Africa. This rickettsial disease could spreadExpand

Newly Recognized Herpesvirus Causing Malignant Catarrhal Fever in White-Tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
ABSTRACT Malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) was diagnosed by clinical signs and lesions in five out of six white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in a North American zoo. The clinical signs andExpand

Malignant Catarrhal Fever in a Bison (Bison Bison) Feedlot, 1993–2000
A fatal enteric syndrome was identified in American bison (Bison bison) at a large feedlot in the American Midwest in early 1998. An estimated 150 bison died of the syndrome between January 1998 andExpand

Transmission of Ovine Herpesvirus 2 in Lambs
ABSTRACT The pattern of acquisition of ovine herpesvirus 2 (OHV-2) infection in lambs was examined by a competitive-inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and PCR. Newborn lambs (n = 118) didExpand
