Reverse- transcription polymerase chain reaction has been applied to the detection of FMD viral in samples. Total RNA was extracted with quanidinum thiocyanate-phenol-chloroform method and reversely transcribed using specific or random primers. cDNA was used as a template for the amplification by RT-PCR of the 424 bp of the VP1 coding sequence. Random primers p(dN)6 gave better results.
