Discovery of a virus of the species Enterovirus F in goats
Here, we report two novel enteroviruses, designated as SD-S67 and SD-S68, isolated from a goat farm. Their complete genome sequences were determined and found to be 7455 and 7465 nucleotides in length, respectively. Molecular characterization revealed that SD-S67 is closely related to bovine enterovirus strain 261 and that SD-S68 to caprine enterovirus strain CEV-JL14. Phylogenetic analysis showed that SD-S67 clustered with members of the species Enterovirus F, and that SD-S68 clustered with enteroviruses of goats and sheep. Recombination analysis showed that SD-S67 is likely to have undergone several recombination events in the process of its evolution. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of an enterovirus F isolate from a goat and of a coinfection with enteroviruses of different species in the same goat herd.
