Twobluetongue virus (BTV)serotypes isolated inAustralia andtwoselected reassortants derived fromcells coinfected withthese viruses havebeenusedtoidentify thegenecoding forthevirus hemagglutinin. Theparent viruses hadcharacteristic hemagglutination patterns: BTVtype20agglutinated sheep erythrocytes only; and BTVtype21agglutinated sheep, bovine, human, andgoose erythrocytes. Analysis ofthetwovirus clones that hadreassorted ingenescoding fortheoutercapsid polypeptides demonstrated… CONTINUE READING
