Bovine Enzootic Hematuria (BEH) is a disease with a severe impact on production indexes and characterized by the development of bovine urinary bladder tumors, particularly in the Azores archipelago. The purpose of this study was to investigate and quantify BPV2 tissue distribution in bovine urinary bladder tumors, normal bladders, and iliac lymph nodes of cattle from the Azores. A real-time PCR system targeting the L1 gene was developed and allowed for the specific detection of the virus. BPV2… CONTINUE READING
