Improved detection of capripoxvirus in biopsy samples by PCR.
A Capripoxvirus detection PCR and antibody ELISA based on the major antigen P32, thehomolog of the vaccinia virus H3L gene.
A novel candidate HIV vaccine vector based on the replication deficient capripoxvirus, lumpy skin disease virus (LSDV).
These poxviruses include the following genera and examples: Avipoxvirus (fowlpox); Capripoxvirus (sheep pox, goatpox, and bovine lumpy skin disease); Suipoxvirus (swinepox); and Parapoxvirus (pseudocowpox).
Member viruses of the genus Capripoxvirus (CPV) i.e.
Using the same technique for capripoxvirus, KS-1 strain for expressing F gene of rinderpest virus after being inserted into the thymidine kinase gene region, was able to protect against both LSDV and rinderpest (14).
developed capripoxvirus recombinant vaccines (rCPV) expressing either H or F gene of rinderpest virus.
developed a recombinant capripoxvirus (rCPV) vaccine by inserting F gene of PPRV into the genome of the attenuated capripoxvirus strain KS-1.
A recombinant capripoxvirus vaccine construct expressing a major core structural protein VP7 of Bluetongue virus serotype 1 (BTV-1) was developed.
developed recombinant vaccine construct by inserting the Gn and Gc glycoprotein genes of RVFV into the TK gene locus of KS1 strain of capripoxvirus. The recombinant construct (rKS1/ RVFV) was able to induce protection in terms of production of neutralizing antibodies in both mice and sheep on challenging with virulent RVFV40.
Capripoxvirus infections can be controlled through vaccination (Carn, 1993).
An antigen trapping ELiSA for the detection of capripoxvirus in culture supernatant and biopsy samples.
