circulation and phylogenetic relationship of chicken and turkey-origin astroviruses detected in domestic ducks (anas platyrhynchos domesticus).the natural occurrence of chicken and turkey-origin astroviruses in domestic ducks (anas platyrhynchos domesticus) is described. twenty-two duck flocks were covered by this research. the liver, spleen, kidney and intestines were sampled and tested by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction for the presence of avian nephritis virus (anv), chicken astrovirus (castv), turkey astrovirus (tastv)-1, tastv-2 and duck astrovirus. the astrovirus infection was confirmed in multiple organ samples f ...201223237368
genetic characterization of a novel astrovirus in pekin ducks.three divergent groups of duck astroviruses (dastvs), namely dastv-1, dastv-2 (formerly duck hepatitis virus type 3) and dastv-3 (isolate cph), and other avastroviruses are known to infect domestic ducks. to provide more data regarding the molecular epidemiology of astroviruses in domestic ducks, we examined the prevalence of astroviruses in 136 domestic duck samples collected from four different provinces of china. nineteen goose samples were also included. using an astrovirus-specific reverse ...201525746165
