The ALV RT-epPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Avian leukosis virus detection by using RT-epPCR. Avian leukosis virus belongs to a family of viruses called retroviruses, single-stranded RNA enveloped viruses. ALV infection in chickens is known to induce increased mortality, tumours, delayed growth, and suboptimal egg production. ALV have been divided into 10 envelope subgroups, A through J, based on host range, receptor interference patterns, and neutralization by antibodies. The subgroup A is included in the noncytopathic group. The subgroup B is included in the cytopathic group which can cause transient cytotoxicity in 30-40 % of the infected cells.
