Development and validation of a PCR-RFLP assay to evaluate TVB haplotypes coding receptors for subgroup B and subgroup E avian leukosis viruses in White Leghorns.

Abstract

The cellular receptor of subgroup B avian leukosis virus (ALVB) is encoded by a gene at the tumour virus B (TVB) locus. TVB alleles encode specific receptors permitting infection by exogenous ALVB or avian leukosis virus subgroup D (ALVD) as well as endogenous avian leukosis virus subgroup E (ALVE), and thus susceptibility is dominant to resistance.
