Can XMRV Infect Cats?



Gerwyn, do you mean Xpr1 receptor? If not, what is a xrv1 receptor? And FLv is feline leukemia virus correct?

Researchers did infect macaques with XMRV. That would be crossing species wouldn't it?

And thank you ever so much for answering all of our questions.

Frank, sorry about the loss of your cat.

sorry i have been calling it xrv1 receptor all day!!
