Bovine herpesvirus 1


The BoHV-1 dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection by using qPCR of species of Bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1). Bovine herpesvirus 1(BoHV-1) is a dsDNA virus of the family Herpesviridae, known to cause several diseases worldwide in cattle including rhinotracheitis, vaginitis, balanoposthitis, abortion, conjunctivitis and enteritis. BoHV-1 is also a contributing factor inshipping fever, also known as Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD). Infection may occur in cattle of any age, but most commonly seen between ages from 6 to 18 months. It is spread horizontally through sexual contact,artificial insemination, and aerosol transmission and it may also be transmitted vertically across the placenta. BoHV-1 can cause both clinical and subclinical infections, depending on thevirulenceof the strain. Like other herpesviruses, BoHV-1 causes a lifelong latent infection and sporadic shedding of the virus. Thesciatic nerveandtrigeminal nerveare the sites oflatency. A reactivated latent carrier is normally the source of infection in a herd. The clinical signs displayed are dependent on the virulence of the strain. Some countries in Europe have successfully eradicated the disease by applying a strict culling policy.
