Complete genome sequences of a cytophatic/noncytophatic pair of bovine viral diarrhea virus subtype 1a viruses
The complete genome sequences of both biotypes of a pair of bovine viral diarrhea viruses isolated from a bovid affected by mucosal disease were determined by next generation sequencing. The cytopathic virus possessed a 423-base insertion derived from bovine poly ubiquitin in the NS2/3 coding region and one nucleotide change. Both biotypes showed an additional glycosylation site in their N-terminus.
