detection of avian bornavirus 5 rna in eclectus roratus with feather picking disorder.avian bornavirus (abv) was discovered recently in parrots with proventricular dilatation disease (pdd), a fatal neurological disease. although abv has been shown to be a causative agent of pdd, its virological characteristics are largely unknown. here we report the detection of abv genotype 5 rna in an eclectus roratus with feather picking disorder (fpd). interestingly, although the bird was persistently infected with abv5 for at least 8 months, it had no clinical signs of pdd. although it remai ...201222309239
sequence determination of a new parrot bornavirus-5 strain in japan: implications of clade-specific sequence diversity in the regions interacting with host factors.in this study, the genome sequence of a new parrot bornavirus-5 (pabv-5) detected in eclectus roratus was determined. phylogenetic analysis showed that the genus bornavirus is divided into three major clades and that pabv-5 belongs to clade 2, which contains avian viruses that exhibit infectivity to mammalian cells. sequence comparisons of the regions known to interact with host factors indicated that the clade 2 avian viruses possess sequences intermediate between the clade 1 mammalian viruses ...201627166599
