About the Edition

This is the first comprehensive book on the bluetongue virus; it includes the molecular structure of the viral components, replication cycles and morphogenesis as well as the biology, evolution, and relationships with its vertebrate and invertebrate hosts. The studies involving immuno-electron microscopy present new techniques and provide excellent examples how to apply these technologies in studying cellular and microbial biology.

Bluetongue is a non-contagious, arthropod-borne viral disease of both domestic and wild ruminants. Bluetongue is an orbivirus which cross-reacts with many antigenically related viruses including Palyam virus and the viruses that cause epizootic hemorrhagic disease of deer and African Horse sickness. A few bluetongue viruses have additional names (e.g., Toggenburg orbivirus for the prototype strain of serotype 25). Isolates differ in virulence, and some strains seem to cause few clinical signs. Like some other viruses such as influenza virus, bluetongue viruses can reassort and recombine to produce new Size: KB.

Bluetongue is endemic in India with frequent outbreaks in sheep. The serological survey on BTV in India has indicated the presence of BTV specific antibodies in Indian sheep, goat, cattle, buffalos, camels and several wild ruminants (Mehrotra et al., ; Chandel et al., ; Prasad et al., a; De et al., ). 2 OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Standards Commission/August-September Article BTV free Ccountry or zone free from bluetongue 1) Historical freedom as described in Chapter does not apply to bluetongue infection with BTV. 2) A country or a zone may be considered free from bluetongue when infection with BTV is notifiable in the whole entire country and either.

Bluetongue virus (BTV) is an arthropod-borne orbivirus that infects sheep, wild ruminants and occasionally cattle. Detection and specific identification of BTV is a multistep process.   Bluetongue (BT) is a non-contagious, infectious, arthropod transmitted viral disease of domestic and wild ruminants that is caused by the bluetongue virus (BTV), the prototype member of the Orbivirus genus in the family Reoviridae. Bluetongue was first described in South Africa, where it has probably been endemic in wild ruminants since antiquity. Since its Cited by:

Bluetongue virus (BTV), a member of Orbivirus genus within the Reoviridae family causes serious disease in livestock (sheep, goat, cattle). Partly due to this BTV has been in the forefront of molecular studies for Bluetongue Viruses book three decades and now represents one of the best understood viruses at the molecular and structural levels.

The book covers regulatory issues associated with bluetongue, epizootic hemmorrhagic disease, African horse sickness, Ibaraki disease, and equine encephalosis. It also addresses the latest orbiviral diagnostic procedures including ELISA and the polymerase chain reaction; the latest cloning, sequencing, and genetics information of these viruses.

ngue virus (BTV) is an orbivirus that infects both domestic and wild ruminants and is transmitted by Culicoides spp. biting midges (Price and HardyBorden et al.Matthews ). Among the arboviruses transmitted by Culicoides, BTV has the greatest economic impact (Bath ), with losses attributed to effects on animal health and.

Publisher Summary. Bluetongue virus (BTV) can infect and replicate in a wide range of mammalian and insect cell types, in vivo and in vitro. The production of virus-specific RNAs, proteins and structures, and their interaction with the cellular components involved in assembly and release of progeny virus particles can have far reaching consequences for the viability of.

Bluetongue virus in semen is associated with the presence of contaminating erythrocytes or mononuclear cells that carry virus; the virus is not found in spermatozoa. 67 International regulations prohibit movement of livestock and germplasm from countries harboring animals with bluetongue viruses to countries considered virus-free.

Bluetongue virus (BTV) infects ruminants, camelids, and occasionally large carnivores.

Bluetongue is a major infectious disease of ruminants caused by an arbovirus (Bluetongue virus, BTV) transmitted by biting midges (Culicoides spp.) –.Historically, bluetongue has been endemic almost exclusively in temperate and tropical areas of the world where the climatic conditions favour both the spread of the susceptible insect vector population and the Cited by: Bluetongue (BT) is a non-contagious animal disease transmitted by midges of the Culicoides genus.

The etiological agent is the BT virus (BTV) that induces a variety of clinical signs in wild or domestic ruminants. BT is included in the notifiable diseases list of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) due to its health impact on domestic ruminants.

A total of 27 BTV Author: Cindy Kundlacz, Grégory Caignard, Corinne Sailleau, Cyril Viarouge, Lydie Postic, Damien Vitour, Sté. Bluetongue disease is a noncontagious, insect-borne, viral disease of ruminants, mainly sheep and less frequently cattle, yaks, goats, buffalo, deer, dromedaries, and is caused by Bluetongue virus (BTV).The virus is transmitted by the midges Culicoides imicola, Culicoides variipennis, and other culicoidsFamily: Reoviridae.

Reassortment contributes to the evolution of RNA viruses with segmented genomes, including Bluetongue virus (BTV). Recently, co-circulation of natural and vaccine BTV variants in Europe, and their ensuing reassortment, were proposed to promote appearance of novel European BTV strains, with potential implications for pathogenicity, spread and vaccination policies.

Bluetongue viruses (BTV) are infectious, noncontagious viruses in the family Reoviridae and genus Orbivirus that are transmitted to domestic and wild ruminants (sheep, cows, goats, deer) by biting midges (no-see-ums) in the genus Culicoides (Fig.

Bluetongue is a non-contagious, viral disease spread by biting insects. It affects species of ruminants, particularly sheep. Bluetongue causes many different symptoms in affected anmi asl i,ncluding ulcers s, ores p, ainful hooves, lameness and reproductive problems.

Affected animals can have swelling of the tongue (“bluetongue”)File Size: KB. There are 29 different types (serotypes) of bluetongue virus (BTV) which can infect domestic animals such as sheep, goats, and cattle, along with wild animals like buffaloes, deer, antelope and camels.

BTV belongs to the family Reoviridae, genus Orbivirus with 20 recognised species in the genus. It is a complex non-enveloped virus with a capsid and double stranded RNA genome.INFECTION WITH BLUETONGUE VIRUSES Article General provisions For the purposes of the Terrestrial Code, bluetongue is defined as an infection of A case refers to an ruminants and camelids animal infected with BT bluetongue virus (BTV).

Novel Serotype of Bluetongue Virus, Western North America To the Editor: Bluetongue is an arboviral disease of domestic and wild ruminants characterized by vascular injury that produces widespread edema and tissue necrosis (1).
