Reduced proviral loads during primo-infection of sheep by Bovine Leukemia virus attenuated mutants


The early stages consecutive to infection of sheep (e.g. primo-infection) by Bovine leukemia virus mutants are largely unknown. In order to better understand the mechanisms associated with this period, we aimed at analyzing simultaneously three parameters: B-lymphocytosis, cell proliferation and viral replication. Sheep were experimentally infected either… (More)
