Table 2 RV2 rhadinovirus load in PBMC of 30 healthy macaques in the WaNPRC colony

From: Development of a real-time QPCR assay for the detection of RV2 lineage-specific rhadinoviruses in macaques and baboons

Animal RV2 DNA load in PBMC (Viral copies per 106 cells; mean ± SD1)
M. nemestrina (pig-tail)  
A98078 2300 ± 1200
F94132 650 ± 460
A98079 340 ± 49*
90152 5.8 ± 4.2*
16 other M. nemestrina Below the limit of detection
M. fascicularis (crab-eating)  
98023 250 ± 96*
7 other M. fascicularis Below the limit of detection
Unknown macaque species  
98062 57 ± 52*
1 other unknown species Below the limit of detection
% of all macaques testing positive 6/30 = 20%
  1. 1 Samples (1 μg) were assayed in duplicate and the means were determined. Standard deviations were calculated using the sum of the errors of the viral and OSM copy number determinations, as described in Materials and Methods.
  2. * These results, while positive for both duplicates, were outside of the linear range of the assay.
