A segment of Madagascar hepatopancreatic parvovirus (HPV) genomic sequence (5742 nucleotides) was determined through PCR and direct sequencing. This nucleotide sequence was compared to isolates from Australia, Thailand, Korea, and Tanzania, and the mean distance was determined to be 17%. The Madagascar HPV is closest to the Tanzania isolate (12%), followed by isolates from Korea (15%), Australia (17%) and Thailand (20%). Analysis of the genomic structure revealed that this HPV sequence is… CONTINUE READING
