presents with neurological symptoms, while Maedi exhibits in a respiratory form.
VETS from Scotland's Rural College are today appealing to sheep farmers across Wales and the UK to be alert to an increasing threat from an incurable viral disease of sheep, called Maedi Visna
When they applied the LearnCoil program to databases of sequences, the researchers found evidence of coiled coils in fusion proteins associated with a wide variety of disease-causing viruses, including the influenza virus, Moloney murine leukemia virus, HIV, simian immunodeficiency virus, and visna
Like HIV in humans, animal viruses such as feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) in cats, visna
virus in sheep and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) in monkeys primarily infect cells of the immune system such as T cells and macrophages.
Ovine progressive pneumonia of sheep is caused by a retrovirus--the visna
This process forms an integral part of the Maedi Visna
(MV) and Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis (CAE) accreditation process.
Vets from Scotland's Rural College claim that many farmers are failing to appreciate the danger that Maedi Visna
(MV) poses to all sheep breeds.
Specialists say a high level of Maedi Visna
(MV) infection has been found in some ocks and there is evidence of infection increasing throughout the sheep population, including Wales.
1997); and iii) viral diseases such as BLV-induced ovine lymphoma, Maedi Visna
and pulmonary adenocarcinoma viral diseases (Aida, 2001; Konnai et al.

The Frederick group used a computer program to compare HTLV-III proteins with proteins from EIAV; from visna
virus, a lentivirus that attacks sheep; and from two leukemia viruses, bovine leukemia virus (BLV) and HTLV-I.
THE number of flocks infected with Maedi Visna
(MV) has doubled in a 15-year period and farmers should be vigilant when bringing replacement ewes and rams on to their farms.
