A strain of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) was detected from bursal tissues of chicks which suffered from infectious bursal disease (IBD) in Chinju, Korea and provisionally named as Chinju strain. A full-length cDNA clone for segment A gene of the virus was constructed, and complete nucleotide sequence of the gene including noncoding region was(More)
The VP2 gene DNA (1.4 kb in approximate) of a very virulent infectious bursal disease virus (vvIBDV) Chinju strain detected in Chinju, Korea was cloned into the bacmid, a baculovirus shuttle vector, through transposition of the gene from initially cloned pFastBacHTa plasmid, a baculovirus expression vector, and was subsequently expressed in Spodoptera(More)
Fowl adenovirus serotype 4 (FAdV-4) is the causative agent of hydropericardium syndrome (HPS), a highly pathogenic disease in poultry. In the present study, hexon, penton base, and fiber-2 genes encoding major capsid proteins were analyzed in four FAdV-4 isolates from HPS-affected chickens in Korea. Nucleotide sequences of the entire hexon (2811 bases),(More)
