The NDV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Newcastle disease virus (NDV) detection by using qPCR. NDV is responsible for a contagious birddiseaseaffecting many domestic and wild avian species, alsotransmissible to humans. First found inNewcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom in 1926, then by Burnet in 1943 in Australia in connection with laboratory infection. The virus NDV (Paramyxoviridae) has a negative-sense, single-stranded RNA genome (ca. 15 Kb) which codes for a RNA-directed RNA polymerase, hemagglutinin-neuramini dase protein,fusion protein,matrix protein, phosphoprotein andnucleoprotein. Its effects are most notable in domestic poultrydue to their high susceptibility and the potential for severe impacts of anepizooticon the poultry industries. It isendemicto many countries.
