Newcastle Disease Virus Variations
Variation among Newcastle disease variations (NDV) strains has traditionally been by functional tests, e.g., virulence, thermostability of the hemagglutinin, plaguing ability. Variation has recently been described at the genetic level by gene cloning and at the antigenic level by monoclonal antibodies (MAb); in this chapter we discuss these two factors separately.
