MOLECULAR DETECTION OF AVIAN LEUKOSIS VIRUS BASED ON SUBMITTED SAMPLES

Avian Leukosis Disease Virus (ALV) is identified as cancer-inducting filterable agent in chicken and has great economic importance in the poultry industry. In this study, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to detect ALV from samples submitted to Veterinary Research Institute (VRI) in year 2013. Four out of 20 cases of pooled organ samples which had clinical sign of tumor tissue were tested positive. The positive samples showed high similarity and identity to ALV subgroup E based on Sequence analysis. Therefore, surveillance and monitoring on ALV should be done as this disease is inheritable and will cause high impact to poultry industry.
