Historically, the genus pestivirus was believed to contain three species of viruses; bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), border disease virus (BDV) and classical swine fever virus (CSFV). However, based on limited sequence analysis of a small number of pestiviral isolates from domestic livestock, evidence has recently emerged indicating that at least four distinct genotypes exist. In an attempt to gain a better understanding of the degree of viral variation among ruminant pestiviruses, the… CONTINUE READING
