Isolation and Identification of Porcine Circovirus Type 2 from Sichuan Province and Sequence Analysis of ORF2 Gene
The PCV-2 positive tissues by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) were inoculated to the PK-15 cells not contaminated by PCV. The viral particles were observed in the infected PK-15 cells by eletronmicroscope .It was concluded that the isolate was PCV-2 and was named SCH-A strain.The capsid protein gene(cp) in ORF2 was amplified from PK-15 cell line infected with SCH-A strain by PCR, and was cloned and sequenced.The nucleotide sequences of ORF2 gene of the SCH-A strain was compared with other porcine circovirus isolates.The results showed that the homologies of nucleotides were between 90.5% and 96.7% in comparision with the PCV-2 reference strains,but the homologies of nucleotides were only about 67% with the PCV-1 reference strains. SCH-A strain displayed the highest nucleotide homology((96.7)%) with the reference strain Hunan .Phylogenetic tree analysis showed ORF2 gene of the SCH-A isolate belongs to PCV-2 .
