The VSV RT-epPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Vesicular stomatitis virus detection by using RT-epPCR. Vesicular stomatitis virus are enveloped, nonsegmented, negative-strand RNA viruses that belong to the genus Vesiculovirus in the Rhabdoviridae family. Vesicular stomatitis virus causes an important viral disease of livestock in the Americas. There are four named viruses responsible of the vesicular stomatitis: vesicular stomatitis New Jersey virus (VSV-NJ), vesicular stomatitis Indiana virus (VSV-IN), vesicular stomatitis Alagoas virus (VSV-AV) and Cocal virus. VSV causes lesions in the mouth and feet of a wide range of animals, but it primarily affects horses, donkeys, cattle, swine, and South American camelids, only in the Western hemisphere. Humans can also become infected producing influenza-like symptoms. Transmission occurs by direct ontact with infected animals (saliva, exudate, epithelium of open vesicles or contaminated objects) or by arthropod vectors. Morbidity can be up to 90% but can vary with conditions and species, mortality rate is low.
