The FeLVp dtec-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Feline leukemia provirus detection by using qPCR. Feline leukemia virus is a single-stranded positive-sense RNA virus belonging to the Retroviridae family. As part of their life cycle, once the viral RNA enters to the cytoplasm, DNA is produced by using its own reverse transcriptase. The new DNA is then incorporated into the host cell genome by an integrase enzyme, at this point the retroviral DNA is referred to as a provirus. Feline leukemia virus infects cats and can be transmitted through the transfer of saliva or nasal secretions. It causes a disease that impairs the cat’s immune system and causes certain types of cancer. This virus infection is responsible for a majority of deaths in household cats, affecting all breeds. Males are more likely to contract the infection than females, and it is usually seen between the ages of one to six years old.
