Genetic studies of African horse sickness virus

Abstract:

African horse sickness virus (AHSV) is a ten-segmented, dsRNA virus, classified as a distinct species within the genus Orbivirus, family Reoviridae. There are nine serotypes of AHSV, any of which can cause African horse sickness (AHS), an extremely severe ‘transboundary’ and notifiable disease of horses, listed by OIE. AHS is currently restricted to sub-Saharan Africa, but has occasionally emerged causing major outbreaks in other geographic regions.
