Bovine herpesvirus 2


The BoHV-2 dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Bovine herpesvirus 2 detection by using qPCR. Bovine herpesvirus 2 is a virus of the family Herpesviridae that causes two diseases in cattle, bovine mammillitis and pseudo-lumpy skin disease. Pseudo-lumpy skin disease manifests with generalized superficial skin lesions over the body and fever. The disease is uncommon and heals within a few weeks. Bovine mammillitis is characterized by vesicular and erosive lesions with necrotic ulceration on the skin of the udder and teats. The difference in clinical manifestations between the two diseases may be caused by the strain of the virus or the method of infection. BoHV-2 probably spreads through an arthropod vector but can also be spread through milkers and milking machines.
