Background: Pseudorabiesvirus (PRV) is a swine DNA herpesvirus of the Alphaherpesvirinae subfamily. It is also known as suid herpesvirus 1 (SHV-1), or by its original name, Aujeszky's disease virus. The pig is the principal reservoir host, but the virus may also infect other mammals like cattle, little ruminants, carnivores and rodents. It is not pathogenic for humans. In swine, Aujeszky’s disease shows itself under three forms: a nervous form, a respiratory form or a genital form. In latently infected pigs, pseudorabiesvirus persists primarily in the trigeminal or sacral ganglia and the tonsils. In other mammals, it causes infection of the central nervous system with neurologic behavioral changes leading very quickly to death.

Description: ViroReal® Kit Pseudorabiesvirus uses real-time PCR for the detection of the glycoprotein B gene of SHV-1. Our carefully designed primers and probe ensure highest sensitivity and specificity. The kit consists of an assay mix for the detection of the pathogen as well as a positive control and an internal positive control (IPC). To minimize PCR cross-contamination,the reaction mix included contains dUTP and uracil-N glycosylase (UNG). For more detailed information see here.
