Briefly, a total of 0.3 mL of virus having 105.31 EID50 was inoculated and the cell culture flasks were incubated at 37oC in the presence of 5% CO2 in a CO2 incubator and observed for cytopathogenic effects.
After occurrence of a cytopathogenic effect in a culture, the supernatant was harvested and stored at -20[degrees]C for DNA extraction.
We observed a cytopathogenic effect within 72 hours.
These cytopathogenic alterations could be due to increased process of lipid peroxidation resulting to increased generation of intracellular reactive oxygen and nitrogenous species (Campos-Pereira et al., 2012; Hussain et al., 2012; 2014).

Although, in most cases, CAV-1 and CAV-2 infections are not difficult to discriminate clinically from each other, they have the same morphological features under the electron microscope and the same cytopathogenic effects on cell cultures.
This could be ascertained with different assays as plaque-reduction assays in plaque forming units (PFU), the analyses of a cytopathogenic effect (CPE) and with enzyme immunoassays (EL1SA) to determine the amount of newly synthesised virus.
