Determination of Ferret Enteric Coronavirus Genome in Laboratory Ferrets.

Emerg Infect Dis; 23(9): 1568-1570, 2017 09.
Article in English | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-28820366
Ferret enteric coronavirus (FRECV) RNA was detected in laboratory ferrets. Analysis of the complete genome sequence of 2 strains, FRCoV4370 and FRCoV063, revealed that FRECV shared 49.9%-68.9% nucleotide sequence identity with known coronaviruses. These results suggest that FRECV might be classified as a new species in the genus Alphacoronavirus.
