Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), a member of the Birnaviridae, specifies two genomic double-stranded RNAs, segment A and segment B. Segment A encodes a 110 kDa polyprotein which is processed into virus proteins VP2, VP3 and VP4. A second open reading frame (ORF), designated ORF A-2, immediately preceding and partially overlapping the 110 kDa protein gene has also been described. After prokaryotic expression of this ORF and immunization of rabbits with the expressed protein we obtained… CONTINUE READING
