Microbiologist Hong Li, veterinary medical officer Naomi Taus, and others at ADRU, in collaboration with Lindsay Oaks at Washington State University and Donal O'Toole at the University of Wyoming, have discovered that the reason the virus won't grow in cell culture is that it undergoes several changes inside the animal's body.
Another ruminant disease being investigated by scientists at ADRU is ovine progressive pneumonia virus (OPPV), which causes mastitis, respiratory distress, swelling of the knees (arthritis), and wasting in infected sheep.
In one study, ADRU microbiologist Lynn Herrmann-Hoesing is using the tissue samples to study alleles (alternate gene copies) associated with an immune response in sheep to the ovine progressive pneumonia virus.
