Abstract

Two H6 subtype influenza viruses were isolated from ducks during the viral surveillance, 2016, including duck/Jiangxi/88/2016 (H6N6) (DK/88/16) and duck/Jiangxi/219/2016 (H6N2) (DK/219/16). To investigate the molecular characteristics and the evolution of the H6 subtype influenza virus, the eight...

Abstract

In order to develop microsatellites for Muscovy ducks and offer a reference for the selection of microsatellites, microsatellites developed in Peking ducks were amplified in Muscovy ducks. Genotypes were detected by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Of 33 detected microsatellites, a total of 29...

Abstract

Background: Avian influenza viruses (AIVs) have been endemic in Egypt since 2006, and the co-circulation of high-pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 and low-pathogenic avian influenza H9N2 subtypes in poultry has been reported; therefore, Egypt is considered a hotspot for the generation of new subtypes ...
