Western blot of infected duck embryonic fibroblasts (DEFs) showing avian bornavirus N-protein during culture. Lanes 1–4 are supernatant fluids. Lane I is from an African gray parrot (AG5). Lanes 2 and 3 are from a yellow-collared macaw (M24). Lane 4 is from uninfected DEFs. Lanes 5–8 are sonicated cell extracts. Lane 5 from AG5; 6 and 7 from M24; and Lane 8 from uninfected DEFs. Lane 9 is an infected brain control. The virus is strongly cell associated.
