Reduced bovine leukaemia virus proviral load in genetically resistant cattle.

Abstract

The bovine leukaemia virus (BLV) is an exogenous retrovirus that is closely related to the human T cell leukaemia viruses. Genetic resistance and susceptibility to persistent lymphocytosis (PL), an advanced subclinical stage of infection characterized by a polyclonal expansion of the infected B cell population, have been mapped to structural motifs in… (More)
