Detection and sequence confirmation of Sin Nombre virus RNA in paraffin-embedded human tissues using one-step RT-PCR.

Abstract

Sin Nombre virus (SNV) is the causative agent of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). SNV RNA can be detected in fresh or frozen autopsy tissue samples by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), and virus antigens can be identified by immunohistochemistry. A method was developed for demonstration of SNV RNA in formalin-fixed, paraffin… (More)
