A 401bp DNA fragment of ferret Aleutian disease virus (ADV) was amplified using PCR primers spanning a hypervariable region of mink ADV capsid sequence. The amplified fragment was 88–89% homologous to the same region of previously known sequence of three different strains of mink ADV, however, as low as 54% homology was observed when compared with a 39bp segment known as hypervariable region. Within the predicted 13 amino acid hypervariable region, the ferret ADV sequence differed at 6… CONTINUE READING
