Distinct expression pattern of miRNAs in Marek's disease virus
infected-chicken splenic tumors and nontumorous spleen tissues.
(2010) Further analysis of Marek's disease virus
horizontal transmission confirms that U(L)44 (gC) and U(L)13 protein kinase activity are essential, while U(S)2 is nonessential.
Protection of chickens against very virulent infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) and Marek's disease virus
(MDV) with a recombinant MDV expressing IBDV VP2.
Skin involvement in lymphomas caused by Marek's disease virus
infection in silkie chickens.
(1,3,10) Some infectious disease agents that can cause severe inflammation within the bird eye are West Nile virus, avian encephalomyelitis virus, Marek's disease virus
(gallid herpesvirus 2), Pasteurella multocida, septicemia from salmonellosis or Mycoplasma gallisepticum, toxoplasmosis, and mycotic endophthalmitis from disseminated aspergillosis or candidiasis.
(5) The principle nerves affected by Marek's disease virus
include the ischiadic nerve, vagus nerve, and the celiac and brachial plexuses.
Marek's disease (MD) is a lymphoproliferative disease of domestic chickens that is caused by a highly cell-associated oncogenic [alpha]-herpesvirus, Marek's disease virus
In both cases, test results were negative for Marek's disease virus
, avian leukosis virus, and reticuloendotheliosis virus.
For diagnosis of MY), quantification of serotype 1 Marek's disease virus
(MDV) DNA load was evaluated in 21 chickens suffering from MD.
Several novel criteria have been tested to assist in the differential diagnosis of tumors induced by Marek's disease virus
(MDV) from those induced by avian leukosis virus (ALV) and reticuloendotheliosis virus (REV).
This paper reviews the three viral diseases that most commonly induce IS or subclinical IS in chickens: Marek's disease virus
(MDV), chicken infectious anemia virus (CIAV), and infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), as well as the interactions among them.
The oncogenic viruses causing neoplastic infection in chickens are herpesviruses comprising of Marek's disease virus
(MDV) and retroviruses comprising of reticuloendotheliosis virus (REV) and avian leucosis virus (ALV).
