ibr, bovine herpesvirus 1, rednose
lnfectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR; bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1); Rednose) is one of several cattle respiratory viruses that plays a large role in the shipping fever complex. One of the major problems with IBR is that like other herpesviruses, once animals are infected they carry the virus for life. Investigations in our laboratory have been aimed at understanding how the IBR virus gets into cells. By understanding the mechanism that the virus uses we hope to develop strategies to prevent IBR infection. Our investigations indicate that IBR grows only in actively growing cells like those found in the upper respiratory tract of cattle. We also know that IBR does not grow well in slow growing cells like those found in the brain.
