Generation of E. coli-derived virus-like particles of porcine circovirus type 2 and their use in an indirect IgG enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay

Abstract

Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) causes increased mortality and poor growth or weight loss in apparently healthy swine. Therefore, methods to detect PCV2-specific antibodies in swine serum are important for prevention, diagnosis, and control of PCV2-associated diseases (PCVAD). In this study, PCV2 virus-like particles (VLPs) were used to develop a rapid… (More)
