In China in 2010, a disease outbreak in egg-laying ducks was associated with a flavivirus. The virus was isolated and partially sequenced. The isolate exhibited 87%-91% identity with strains of Tembusu virus, a mosquito-borne flavivirus of the Ntaya virus group. These findings demonstrate emergence of Tembusu virus in ducks.
The complete genomic sequence of a new Muscovy duck-origin reovirus (N-MDRV), strain J18 from China, was determined. The virus has a tricistronic S1 genome segment that is distinct from the originally described MDRV, which possesses a bicistronic S4 genome segment. Pairwise comparisons and phylogenetic analyses suggest that N-MDRV J18 is a new isolate(More)
The complete genomic sequence of a Pekin duck origin reovirus (DRV) from China was determined. The genome comprises 23,419 bp, with segments ranging from 1,191 bp (S4) to 3,959 bp (L1). Pairwise comparisons and phylogenetic analysis indicate that the Pekin duck origin reovirus is more closely related to the new type of Muscovy duck origin reovirus (N-MDRV)(More)
Since the first description of duck circovirus (DuCV)-associated disease, there are several reports about the distribution of the disease. However, the information regarding the genetic variation of DuCV in recent years is unclear. In the present study, the complete genomic sequences of 9 DuCV strains, which were obtained by PCR screening from 90 dead or(More)
