Porcine circovirus infections in Austria: Disease manifestations and molecular pathological investigations into the replication strategy of the virus

Abstract
In this project we plan the classification of PCV-2 infections in Austria. We focus on the correlation of the severity of lymph node lesions with involvement of other organs, as kidney, lung or liver. In addition, we want to exploit whether and how frequently PCV-2 is associated with intestinal, liver or CNS diseases in pigs.
With the aid of ISH using strand-specific probes we would like to obtain information on the replication strategy of PCV-2 in naturally infected tissues and the quantities of involved nucleic acid species.
