A quantitative Real Time RT-PCR assay was developed to detect and quantify bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) in the respiratory tract of infected animals. A pair of primers and a TaqMan probe targeting conserved regions of the nucleoprotein gene of BRSV were designed. The detection limit of the assay was shown to be 10(3) RNA copies and standard curve demonstrated a linear range from 10(3) to 10(8) copies as well as an excellent reproducibility. The efficiency of the BRSV Real Time RT-PCR was then assessed by detecting BRSV in lungs, tracheas and bronchoalveaolar fluids (BAL) sample…
