Orthobornavirus alphapsittaciforme


The OrtBV-AlphaPsi dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Orthobornavirus alphapsittaciforme detection by using qPCR. Orthobornavirus alphapsittaciforme is an avian single-stranded RNA virus in the Orthobornavirus genus capable of affecting a wide range of parrots in captivity. Infection causes proventricular dilatation disease, an illness characterised by inflammation of the intestinal nervous ganglia and variable concurrent encephalitis and myelitis. The clinical outcome varies from inapparent to fatal neuropathic disease. Horses, sheep, cattle, rodents, reptiles, and humans are also natural hosts. This virus can cause classical Borna disease in horse and sheep.
