Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy Infectivity in Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros)
BSE was diagnosed in six of eight greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros), a member of the family Bovidae, subfamily Bovinae, that died at the London Zoo from 1989 through 1992 (2,13,14).
Tissues from four greater kudu that died with spongiform encephalopathy were tested for infectivity by bioassay in C57B1-J6 mice (Table 2).
These results contrast with those from a previous study (13) in which 20 of 21 C57B1 mice were positive for spongiform encephalopathy after injection of formalin-fixed brain from the index case of TSE in greater kudu (kudu A664), with a mean incubation period of 465 [+ or -] 14 days (M.
The distribution of BSE infectivity in tissues of greater kudu contrasts with that in tissues of BSE-infected cattle (24,25) but is more like the distribution found in genetically susceptible sheep infected with scrapie or experimental BSE (26-28).
An important area for further research, therefore, is to investigate whether our results represent true qualitative differences in the biology of BSE in the greater kudu and the domestic cow or possibly indicate similarities, unapparent only because of the variables inherent in the sensitivities of current bioassay methods.
