It is known; however, that the time required for seroconversion and manifestation of the disease in animals infected with CAEV
is variable, and some animals do not seroconvert nor present with a clinical manifestation (LARA et al., 2003; ALVAREZ et al., 2005; PAULA et al., 2009; RACHID et al., 2013).
Caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus (CAEV
) and Bluetongue virus (BTV) infections have great negative impact on goat breeding.
It also causes some of the same symptoms as CAEV
, including inflammation of the joints, the udder and the eye.
Other molecular techniques such as cloning and sequencing are also used to provide knowledge on a country or region's specific strain of CAEV
. Phylogenetic analyses of the proviral DNAs of CAEV
throughout the world have given the suggestion that in certain areas CAEV
causes natural infection not only in goats but also in sheep.
O virus da artrite-encefalite caprina (CAEV
), pertencente a familia Retroviridae.
