A reverse transcriptase assay for the diagnosis of lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) of turkeys.

Abstract

A reverse transcriptase assay was applied as a diagnostic test for lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) of turkeys. The assay differentiates LPD from reticuloendotheliosis (RE) on the basis of a different divalent cation-requirement of the exogenous-templated reverse transcriptase activity associated with the causative viruses. The test requires small volumes… (More)
