Bovine viral diarrhoea virus genotype 1 can be separated into at least eleven genetic groups

Bovine viral diarrhoea virus genotype 1 can be separated into at least eleven genetic groups Seventy-eight bovine viral diarrhoea viruses (BVDV) recently collected in Austria, France, Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Spain and UK were genetically typed in the 5′-untranslated (5′UTR) and autoprotease (N pro ) regions of the pestivirus genome. Seventy-six of the isolates were BVDV-1 and two French isolates were of the BVDV-2 genotype. Phylogenetic analysis of the 5′UTR (245 nt), including additional BVDV-1 sequences from USA, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Mozambique and Sweden, taken from GenBank and from our previous works, indicated that these viruses were clustered not only into the two generally accepted groups (BVDV-1a –“NADL like” and BVDV-1b –“Osloss like”), but altogether into 11 phylogenetic groups. Similar clustering was observed with N pro region sequences (385 nt) and the highest bootstrap values (over 95%) were obtained by phylogeny combining 5′UTR and N pro sequences. Some associations between the genetic grouping and the origin of the isolates were apparent, probably reflecting historical trade contacts. Considering the variability of isolates it is recommended that diagnostic PCR primers should be re-examined to ensure coverage of all BVDV-1 groups. The genogroups were less clearly differentiated by monoclonal antibody typing, suggesting significant antigenic similarities within the BVDV-1 genotype. Archives of Virology Springer Journals
