The sequences of the L1 loop of the hexon protein from representative fowl adenovirus (FAdV) strains of the different European and American collections were determined and compared. This study highlighted the lack of consensus in the numbering of the individual serotypes between the American and the European classifications. An identification system is proposed based on restriction fragment length polymorphism of the hexonA/hexonB polymerase chain reaction product. In addition, new insights… CONTINUE READING
