FLATSCHART, Roberto B.  and  RESENDE, Maurício. Acute and latent infection in mice with a virulent strain of Aujeszky’s disease virus. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2000, vol.31, n.4, pp.308-311. ISSN 1517-8382.

Acute and latent infections with the Brazilian LA031 strain of Aujeszky’s disease virus (ADV) were established in mice. Ultraviolet irradiated ADV administered subcutaneously was a successful way to establish latent infection. The presence of ADV was detected by PCR. Two sets of 22-mer primers were synthesized and used to amplify gG glycoprotein gene sequences in acute and latent infected trigeminal nerve ganglia. The specificity of the amplification was verified by dot-blot hybridization.

Keywords : Aujeszky’s disease virus; polymerase chain reaction; dot-blot hybridization.
