In order to evaluate the variability of encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV), field isolates originating from different European regions and inducing different clinical pictures in pigs have been molecularly characterised. The regions targeted were the poly(C) tract, a part of the 5’-UTR (360 nucleotides), the Leader gene (201 nucleotides), the complete capsid coding region (2502 nucleotides), the 2A gene (403 nucleotides), the end of the 3D polymerase gene (305 nucleotides) and the 3’-UTR (123 nucleotides). Analyses have also been performed on a virulent field isolate, which had been subjecte…
