Table 1 Detection of ABV RNA in matched tissues of inoculees a

From: Experimental induction of proventricular dilatation disease in cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus) inoculated with brain homogenates containing avian bornavirus 4

  Experimentals (n = 3) Controls (n = 2)
Brain 3/3 0/2
Spinal cord 1/3 0/1b
Adrenal 0/3 0/1b
Stomachs 2/3 0/2
Liver 0/3 0/2
Lung 0/3 0/2
Heart 1/3 0/2
Pectoral muscle 0/3 0/2
skin 0/3 0/2
  1. a RT-PCR for ABVN RNA and control RT-PCRs were performed for each specimen shown. b Control RT-PCRs were negative in one of the tissue samples from the control inoculees so the results for this bird were excluded from the analysis.
