Sequence analysis of bluetongue virus serotype 8 from the Netherlands 2006 and comparison to other European strains.
TLDR
Although NET2006/04 showed high levels of nucleotide identity with other 'western' BTV strains, it represents a new introduction and was not derived from the BTV-8 vaccine, although its route of entry into Europe has not been established. Expand
Rapid cDNA synthesis and sequencing techniques for the genetic study of bluetongue and other dsRNA viruses.
TLDR
Improved methods for sequence-independent synthesis of full-length cDNA copies of dsRNA genes and associated sequencing strategies are described and make it possible to generate sequence data rapidly from multiple isolates for molecular epidemiology studies. Expand
Full Genome Characterisation of Bluetongue Virus Serotype 6 from the Netherlands 2008 and Comparison to Other Field and Vaccine Strains
TLDR
Two genome segments of the virus showed significant differences from the BTV-6 vaccine, indicating that they had been acquired by reassortment event with B TV-8, and another unknown parental-strain, which suggests that the virus was in the process of reassorting with the northern field strain of Btv-8. Expand
Novel Bluetongue Virus Serotype from Kuwait
TLDR
Nucleotide sequencing identified KUW2010/02 as a novel BTV serotype, and caused mild clinical signs in sheep. Expand
Transmission Pathways of Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus in the United Kingdom in 2007
TLDR
Complete genome sequence analysis of FMD viruses conducted in real-time has identified the initial and intermediate sources of these outbreaks and demonstrate the value of such techniques in providing information useful to contemporary disease control programmes. Expand
Design of primers and use of RT-PCR assays for typing European bluetongue virus isolates: differentiation of field and vaccine strains.
TLDR
RT-PCR primers and assays targeting Seg-2 have been developed for rapid identification (within 24 h) of the six European BTV types and show perfect agreement with the results of conventional virus-neutralization methods. Expand
Bluetongue virus replication, molecular and structural biology.
TLDR
The atomic structure of the BTV core has been determined by X-ray crystallography, demonstrating how the major core proteins are assembled and interact and comprehensive sequence analyses for the 24 types demonstrate that they can be used to identify BTV serotype. Expand
Analysis and phylogenetic comparisons of full-length VP2 genes of the 24 bluetongue virus serotypes.
TLDR
The data presented form an initial basis for B TV serotype identification by sequence analyses and comparison of Seg-2, and for development of molecular diagnostic assays for individual BTV serotypes (by RT-PCR). Expand
Epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus type 7 infection in cattle in Israel
TLDR
Hemorrhagic virus infection was first reported in wild ruminants in New Jersey, usa, during August 1955 by [Shope and others (1955]]. Expand
Genetic and phylogenetic analysis of the outer-coat proteins VP2 and VP5 of epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV): comparison of genetic and serological data to characterise the EHDV serogroup.
TLDR
The results show that VP2 is highly variable, is under great pressure to adapt and can be correlated with serotype, and while also variable, VP5 appears to be under less adaptive pressure than VP2 but still shows some correlation with serotypes. Expand
