Coding-complete sequencing classifies parrot bornavirus 5 into a novel virus species

Coding-complete sequencing classifies parrot bornavirus 5 into a novel virus species In this study, we determined the sequence of the coding region of an avian bornavirus detected in a blue-and-yellow macaw ( Ara ararauna ) with pathological/histopathological changes characteristic of proventricular dilatation disease. The genomic organization of the macaw bornavirus is similar to that of other bornaviruses, and its nucleotide sequence is nearly identical to the available partial parrot bornavirus 5 (PaBV-5) sequences. Phylogenetic analysis showed that these strains formed a monophyletic group distinct from other mammalian and avian bornaviruses and in calculations performed with matrix protein coding sequences, the PaBV-5 and PaBV-6 genotypes formed a common cluster, suggesting that according to the recently accepted classification system for bornaviruses, these two genotypes may belong to a new species, provisionally named Psittaciform 2 bornavirus .
