Abstract

is the causative agent of caseous lymphadenitis (CLA), a chronic disease of sheep and goats. Current methods for CLA diagnosis cannot identify all infected animals; therefore, the development of an improved diagnosis is essential. We evaluated recombinant phospholipase D (rPLD) protein individually or combined with rCP01850 or rCP09720 proteins for the detection of CLA in sheep. A total of 40 positive and 25 negative sera samples were analysed by ELISA using the recombinant proteins. ELISA using rPLD (E1), rPLD+rCP01850 (E2) and rPLD+rCP09720 (E3) showed 90, 92.5 and 97.5 % sensitivity and 92, 72 and 92 % specificity, respectively. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curves for E1, E2 and E3 was 0.925, 0.882 and 0.990, respectively. ELISA using rPLD +rCP09720 demonstrated the best sensitivity and specificity. Thus, the combination of these recombinant proteins in indirect ELISA has the potential for the diagnosis of CLA in sheep.
