Genetic variation of nucleocapsid genes of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus field strains in China

Genetic variation of nucleocapsid genes of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus field strains in China Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) poses a great threat to the Chinese swine industry. During 2006–2011, 74.0 % (94/127) of samples from 32 swine-raising farms in 15 provinces were positive for PEDV by reverse transcription nested polymerase chain reaction (RT-nested PCR). The sequences of nucleocapsid (N) genes of 32 representative field strains were determined, and the open reading frames (ORFs) of these N genes were 1326 nucleotides long.

Abstract

Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) poses a great threat to the Chinese swine industry. During 2006–2011, 74.0 % (94/127) of samples from 32 swine-raising farms in 15 provinces were positive for PEDV by reverse transcription nested polymerase chain reaction (RT-nested PCR). The sequences of nucleocapsid (N) genes of 32 representative field strains were determined, and the open reading frames (ORFs) of these N genes were 1326 nucleotides long. The N gene sequences were found to be more than 95 % identical to each other. The number of potential phosphorylation sites in the N protein varied from 5 to 12. A phylogenetic tree based on the N genes showed that the 32 Chinese field strains formed three groups.
