Bovine leukemia virus (BLV) is the etiological agent of a lymphoproliferative disease in cattle. This retrovirus can also be experimentally transmitted to sheep, in which the pathology is more rapid and more frequent. This review summarizes the current knowledge on the BLV virus and more particularly on its role in lymphocyte homeostasis and induction of pathogenesis. This system has been informative for understanding pathogenesis induced by human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-1).
