Annotated Sequence Record


Spring viremia of carp (SVC) is listed as a notifiable viral disease by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). In 2016, the first official SVC outbreak was detected in the city of Gyeongsan, Korea. The present study reports the first complete genome analysis of SVC virus (SVCV, ADC-SVC2016-5) isolated from leather carp (Cyprinus carpio nudus). The results revealed that ADC-SVC2016-5 has a 11,029-bp genome containing five genes: N, P, M, G, and L. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that ADC-SVC2016-5 (accession number MG663512), isolated from leather carp, was closely related to genogroup Ia isolates of the Asian clade. This report provides additional information for studying the molecular epidemiology and evolution of spring viremia of carp virus.
