A new outbreak of rabies in rare Ethiopian wolves ( Canis simensis )

A new outbreak of rabies in rare Ethiopian wolves ( Canis simensis ) Between October 2008 and May 2009, five brain samples from the carcasses of the rare Ethiopian wolf ( Canis simenensis ) were submitted for rabies virus testing. Rabies virus was detected in all five samples, and this confirmed that a further outbreak of rabies had occurred within the wolf population in the Bale Mountains of Ethiopia. Sequence comparison of a partial fragment of the nucleoprotein-coding gene demonstrated that all viruses showed 100% sequence identity, suggesting a single introduction of rabies virus. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Between October 2008 and May 2009, five brain samples from the carcasses of the rare Ethiopian wolf ( Canis simenensis ) were submitted for rabies virus testing. Rabies virus was detected in all five samples, and this confirmed that a further outbreak of rabies had occurred within the wolf population in the Bale Mountains of Ethiopia. Sequence comparison of a partial fragment of the nucleoprotein-coding gene demonstrated that all viruses showed 100% sequence identity, suggesting a single introduction of rabies virus.
