Research Project: Generation of Broad Spectrum, High Titer, Caprine Polyclonal Antisera Against Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus (Bvdv) Project Number: 5030-32000-106-10
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Dec 15, 2011
End Date: Dec 14, 2013

The objective of this cooperative research project is to elicit the production of antisera in goats that recognizes a broad range of bovine viral diarrhea viruses (BVDV).

Antigenically and genetically diverse pestivirus strains will be selected. Inoculum will be prepared by growing selected viruses in tissue culture or by expressing proteins in a baculovirus vector. Inoculum will be delivered to goats in order to produce antibodies.
