Polyacrylamide gel and silver staining of reverse transcription–PCR products from brains of piglets infected with porcine hemagglutinating encephalomyelitis coronavirus. Amplicons of ≈250 bp were found in brain samples from pigs 6, 8, 9, and 11 days of age. Neg, negative control (water + mastermix); PK15, amplification of PK15 cells inoculated with brain and tonsil from affected piglet; AP, asymptomatic piglet; and Ladder, 50-bp Fermentas.
