Abstract:

Bovine papillomavirus (BPV) causes benign tumours in the mucosal and cutaneous epithelium and is characterized by the presence of warts. The present study includes the molecular identification of BPV strains in samples of warts using degenerate polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers FAP59/64. Wart samples were collected from the cattle having typical lesions on various parts of the body. The present study showed that PCR amplification with the primers FAP59/64, which partially amplify the L1 gene and showed the 470bp amplicon size, indicating BPV. The results in this study are important for the development of prophylactic and therapeutic measures that contribute to reducing the economic losses associated with BPV.
