The nucleotide sequence of the RNA segment 3 of bluetongue virus (BTV) serotype 2 (Ona-A) from North America was determined to be 2772 nucleotides containing a single large open reading frame of 2703 nucleotides (901 amino acid). The predicted VP3 protein exhibited general physiochemical properties (including hydropathy profiles) which were very similar to those previously deduced for other BTV VP3 proteins. Partial genome segment 3 sequences, obtained by polymerase chain reaction (PCR… CONTINUE READING
