Technical Abstract: A multiplex RT-PCR has been designed to differentiate lentogenic Newcastle disease viruses from exotic Newcastle disease (END). Using computer sequence analysis and published sequences (GenBank), we have constructed lentogenic (B1/LaSota) and END (CA02)-specific primer sets. The primers amplify regions within the phosphoprotein and fusion protein genes of NDV. The primer sets have been tested in uniplex RT-PCR assays and amplify the predicted target templates. Our preliminary evaluation of the primers in a multiplex RT-PCR format suggests the primers will be effective in discriminating lentogenic and velogenic NDVs. The multiplex RT-PCR parameters have been optimized. RNA from archived NDV field isolates and END experimentally infected and uninfected chickens will be tested. The sensitivity and specificity is currently being determined
