Avian bornavirus protein demonstrated by immunohistochemical testing in the central nervous system of birds with proventricular dilatation disease (PDD). A) within nuclei, cytoplasm and dendrites of several Purkinje cells of the cerebellum, bar = 50 µm; B) negative control: no immunoreactivity of Purkinje cells in a PDD-negative bird, bar = 50 µm; C–F), different phenotypes of positive neurons: C) within neurons, viral protein is expressed within intranuclear inclusion bodies; D) diffusely withi
