Here, we present the complete genome sequence of an attenuated duck enteritis virus (DEV) obtained by serial chicken embryo passage. Compared with a virulent DEV, there is a serial deletion in unique long open reading frame 11 (LORF11) and unique long region 2 (UL2). This study will aid in further exploration of the molecular pathogenesis of DEV.
To gain a better understanding of the genetic changes required for attenuation of duck enteritis virus (DEV), the Chinese standard challenge strain of DEV (DEV CSC) was serially passaged 80 times in chick embryo fibroblasts. We plaque-purified the virus after the 25th passage (DEV p25) and the 80th passage (DEV p80) and investigated its in vitro and in vivo(More)
Here, we present the complete genomic sequence of an attenuated duck enteritis virus (DEV). The Chinese standard challenge strain of DEV (DEV CSC) was serially passaged 20 times in chick embryo fibroblasts and then 85 times in chick embryos. The virus was attenuated and was avirulent to 2-month-old ducks. The attenuated DEV genome is 162,131 base pairs (bp)(More)
Here, we present the complete genomic sequence of the Chinese standard challenge strain (CSC) of duck enteritis virus (DEV), which was isolated in China in 1962. The DEV CSC genome is 162,131 bp long and contains 78 predicted open reading frames (ORFs). Comparison of the genomic sequences of DEV CSC and DEV live vaccine strain K at passage 63 (DEV K p63)(More)
H9 subtype avian influenza viruses (AIVs) remain a significant burden in the poultry industry and are considered to be one of the most likely causes of any new influenza pandemic in humans. As ducks play an important role in the maintenance of H9 viruses in nature, successful control of the spread of H9 AIVs in ducks will have significant beneficial effects(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS To investigate the impact of hepatitis B virus (HBV) S gene integration on serum hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) levels in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) with long-term nucleos(t)ide analogue (NUCs) therapy. METHODS CHB patients who performed liver biopsy at baseline and treated with long-term NUCs therapy were recruited. The integration(More)
