Previously we have shown that avian leukosis virus subgroup J (ALV-J) might be present in chicken flocks from Malaysia based on serological study and also on detection of tissue samples with myelocytic infiltration. In this study, the polymerase chain reaction was used to detect ALV-J sequences from archived frozen samples. Out of 21 tissue samples examined, 16 samples were positive for proviral DNA and four samples for ALV-J RNA. However, only nine samples were found positive for myelocytic… CONTINUE READING
