Technical Data
R3000-08E
Rotavirus, Capsid Protein
Description:
Rotaviruses, members of the family Reoviridae, are a major cause of diarrhea in young mammals. Rotavirus infections also result in economic losses in agriculture due to diarrhea in calf, pig, sheep, and poultry rearing. Diarrhea (or scours) due to the rotavirus Nebraska Calf Diarrhea Virus can affect calves up to 30 days of age or older. Diarrhea begins 2 to 3 days after exposure. Diagnosis is by history, lesions (ulcers on the tongue, lips, and mouth) and laboratory tests. Mortality rates may be as high as 50 percent, depending on the secondary bacteria present.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
ELISA: 1:20-1:200
Western Blot: 1:10-1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
