The eight Chordopoxvirinae genera include Orthopoxvirus, Parapoxvirus, Yatapoxvirus, Molluscipoxvirus, Avipoxvirus, Capripoxvirus, Leporipoxvirus, and Suipoxvirus.
These poxviruses include the following genera and examples: Avipoxvirus (fowlpox); Capripoxvirus (sheep pox, goatpox, and bovine lumpy skin disease); Suipoxvirus (swinepox); and Parapoxvirus (pseudocowpox).
Capripoxvirus grow in tissue culture of bovine, ovine or caprine origin, although primary or secondary cultures of lamb testis or lamb kidney cells are considered to be the best (Carn, 1995 and Davies and Mbugwa 1985).
Capripoxvirus infections can be controlled through vaccination (Carn, 1993).
