In the present study, a thorough comparison of the infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) TC07-2/GVI-1 linage was conducted by comparing the S1 gene sequences of GVI-1 viruses with those of viruses representing the established genotypes and lineages. IBV GVI-1 strains were found to be closely genetically related to each other, irrespective of where the viruses were isolated, and differed from other known IBV genotypes and lineages; thus, it was confirmed that GVI represents a novel genotype. However… CONTINUE READING
