Acute bee paralysis virus (ABPV) is an infectious disease causing paralysis in healthy honeybee colonies. Because ABPV is highly homologous with relative viruses, it is difficult to distinguish ABPV from especially IAPV or KBV by molecular diagnosis. In this study, for accurate and specific detection of ABPV, a secondary nested PCR detection method following the primary detection PCR against ABPV was developed. It could be able to detect from less than 100 molecules of ABPV. The detection time was also minimized from RNA extraction to PCR. Using ultra-rapid ABPV-specific detection and nested PCR, the presence of ABPV was detected from infected bee samples within 50 minutes. It might be expected that this kind of detection would be helpful for accurate detection and monitoring of ABPV in environment.
