TABLE 2

Comparison of identified consensus-level mutations against three vaccine strains of IBVa

TABLE 2
  • a Generated consensus sequences for the five viruses were aligned to M41 (AY851295.1), Ma5 (KY626045.1), H52 (EU817497.1), and H120 (FJ881351.1) sequences available in the NCBI database using MAFFT. Instances where the nucleotide of at least one of the egg-attenuated viruses (i.e., lineages A to D) match a vaccine strain (i.e., Ma5, H52, and H120) were identified and are included here. M41-CK and M41 (AY851295.1) sequences were also included as a virulent M41 comparison. N, no consensus sequence at given position.
