A sequence of 375 nucleotides, which included the region encoding the cleavage activation site and signal peptide of the fusion protein gene, was determined for 178 isolates of the pigeon variant strain of Newcastle disease virus (PPMV-1). These were compared with the sequences of 47 similar isolates published by GenBank, which included 30 isolates from pigeons and 17 representatives from each sublineage of avian paramyxovirus type 1. The resulting alignment was analysed phylogenetically using… CONTINUE READING
