An Iranian field isolate (IR01) of Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) was characterized by sequence analysis of its VP2 gene and protein. Comparison of the obtained sequences with those of IBDV isolates from other countries revealed that IR01 was similar to very virulent IBDV (vvIBDV) strains with the identities at nucleotide and amino acid levels reaching 98.198.9% and 99.199.3%, respectively. On the other hand, it was less similar to non-vvIBDV strains; with nucleotide and amino acid… CONTINUE READING
