serological and molecular epidemiology of canine adenovirus type 1 in red foxes (vulpes vulpes) in the united kingdom.canine adenovirus type 1 (cav-1) causes infectious canine hepatitis (ich), a frequently fatal disease which primarily affects canids. in this study, serology (elisa) and molecular techniques (pcr/qpcr) were utilised to investigate the exposure of free-ranging red foxes (vulpes vulpes) to cav-1 in the united kingdom (uk) and to examine their role as a wildlife reservoir of infection for susceptible species. the role of canine adenovirus type 2 (cav-2), primarily a respiratory pathogen, was also e ...201627796367
detection of canine adenovirus 1 in red foxes ( vulpes vulpes) and raccoons ( procyon lotor) in germany with a taqman real-time pcr assay.we developed a real-time (rt)pcr assay based on taqman probe technology for the specific detection of canine adenovirus 1 (cadv-1). the assay is able to detect three 50% tissue culture infectious dose/ml in cadv-1-containing cell culture supernatant. viral genomes were not amplified of canine adenovirus 2 or of several bovine, porcine, and avian adenoviruses. in silico analysis provided no indication of amplification of other heterologous genomes. the sensitivity of the real-time assay exceeded ...201728581363
