Abstract

Genetic and phylogenetic analysis of reemerged novel Seneca Valley virus strains in Guangdong province, 2017.

Abstract

From June to July 2017, six Seneca Valley virus (SVV) strains were isolated from swine herds exhibiting SVV-associated porcine idiopathic vesicular disease (PIVD) in Guangdong province, China. Complete genomic sequences of these six newly identified strains were genetically and phylogenetically analysed. The results revealed that these six SVV strains were genetically closely related to USA/GBI29/2015 and notably distinct from all previous Chinese strains, indicating the reemergence of new SVV strains in Guangdong province.
