Abstract

Bluetongue virus (BTV) and epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV) infect a variety of wild and domestic ruminant hosts in the United States, with outcomes ranging from subclinical infection to clinical disease resulting in mortality. Because cattle have been suggested as a temporary reservoir...

AbstractFull Text

Recent Orbivirus occurrences in the Americas have been investigated using whole genome amplification and sequencing followed by phylogenetic analysis. The Bluetongue virus (BTV) and Epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV) whole genomes were amplified without prior sequence knowledge and deep...

Abstract

Culicoides variipennis, the only proven vector of bluetongue virus (BLU) in the western hemisphere, was evaluated as a vector of bluetongue virus serotype 2 (BLU 2). This serotype was isolated from sentinel cattle in south Florida at a site devoid of C. variipennis. C. variipennis readily fed on a...

Abstract

A blocking (B) dot ELISA, using a monoclonal antibody (mAb) against a group specific antigen of bluetongue virus (BTV) is described for the detection of antibodies to BTV in cattle sera. Dots of BTV antigens were absorbed to nitrocellulose (NC) strips and/or NC mounted in the windows of dipsticks....

Abstract

The species composition and seasonal prevalence of Culicoides spp. associated with cattle at 5 sites in peninsular Florida were studied in 1980-82. Light-trap catches indicated that C. insignis predominated at 3 of the sites and C. variipennis (the only proven vector of bluetongue virus to cattle...

Abstract

A study of the epidemiology of bluetongue (BLU) in Florida, USA, was initiated in 1979 with the determination of the species of Culicoides biologically transmitting BLU viruses in Florida as a major objective. This paper summarizes the progress. Current knowledge of adult and immature stages...

Abstract

In 1982 a serotype of bluetongue virus (BTV) previously unrecognized in the Western Hemisphere was isolated from cattle in the USA. Clinical disease was not seen in the cattle which were part of a sentinel herd system in Florida designed for studying the epidemiology of BTV. The isolation of...

Abstract

The first isolation of bluetongue virus (BTV) serotype 2 in the USA was in 1982 from a sentinel herd of cattle at Ona, Florida. Electrophoresis of genome RNA showed that all 16 serotype 2 isolates from this focus of infection had one of two electropherotypes (Ona A and Ona B). All genome segments...

Abstract

Nearly all of the Culicoides adults caught in light traps on a cattle feedlot in southern Florida in 1980-82 were C. insignis. Males and nulliparous females were present in all collections except those made during the exceptionally cold winter months of 1982. The mean number of eggs per egg batch...
