Newcastle disease virus
The NDV RT-epPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Newcastle disease virus by using epPCR. Newcastle disease virus is responsible for a contagious bird disease affecting many domestic and wild avian species, also transmissible to humans. First found in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom in 1926, then by Burnet in 1943 in Australia in connection with laboratory infection. The virus Newcastle disease virus (Paramyxoviridae) has a negative-sense, single-stranded RNA genome (ca. 15 Kb) which codes for a RNA-directed RNA polymerase, hemagglutinin-neuraminidase protein, fusion protein, matrix protein, phosphoprotein and nucleoprotein. Its effects are most notable in domestic poultry due to their high susceptibility and the potential for severe impacts of an epizootic on the poultry industries. It is endemic to many countries.
