vertical transmission of avian bornavirus in psittaciformes: avian bornavirus rna and anti-avian bornavirus antibodies in eggs, embryos, and hatchlings obtained from infected sun conures (aratinga solstitialis).fertilized eggs were obtained from four pairs of sun conures (aratinga solstitialis) infected with avian bornavirus (abv) genotype 2, as determined by the sequence of the p24 gene. abv rna could be detected in early embryos of all four pairs. abv rna also was detected in brain, liver, and eyes of late-stage embryos of one of the pairs (pair 4) and in blood of a 2-wk-old hatchling of this pair, demonstrating that vertical transmission can occur. abv rna could be detected in the liver but not in t ...201223050462
