Enzymatic amplification of lactate dehydrogenase-elevating virus.


To improve the detection of lactate dehydrogenase-elevating virus (LDV), we developed a PCR assay. Primers were selected from ORF7, encoding nucleocapsid protein VP1. No specific amplification was observed with any other common murine virus or with RNAs from the closely related Lelystad virus and equine arteritis virus. In experimentally infected mice, LDV… (More)
