Variable cDNA regions in the VP2 gene of five highly virulent infectious bursal disease viruses (IBDVs) isolated in Japan were amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and sequenced. The nucleotide sequences of five highly virulent IBDVs were identical. Comparisons of the nucleotide and the deduced amino acid sequences with those of other strains of IBDV indicated that Japanese highly virulent IBDV is different from all other strains of IBDV that were compared. The number of amino acids… CONTINUE READING
