Table 3 Estimation of the proviral copy number (per 1 mL peripheral blood a ) in each lymphocyte subpopulation using BLV-CoCoMo-qPCR

From: Estimation of bovine leukemia virus (BLV) proviral load harbored by lymphocyte subpopulations in BLV-infected cattle at the subclinical stage of enzootic bovine leucosis using BLV-CoCoMo-qPCR

Cattle Proviral load (Copies/105cells) Proviral copy number/ml of blood in each of the lymphocyte subpopulations
   CD5+IgM+ CD5-IgM+ CD4+ CD8+
1) BLV-infected cattle ( proviral load > 100 copies/105 cells)
N733 1,614 268,914 7,809 11,980 8,811
N788 18,094 360,816 99,429 133,782 111,587
O10 10,689 450,514 36,951 88,382 81,626
2) BLV-infected cattle (proviral load < 100 copies/105 cells)
N818 8 148 328 91 60
  1. aThe proviral load in each lymphocyte subpopulation (expressed as the copy number per 105 PBMCs) was estimated by BLV-CoCoMo-qPCR [19] and then calculated in terms of copies per ml.
