The nucleotide sequence of a swine vesicular disease virus (SVDV) strain that is pathogenic for pigs has been determined and compared with that of a non-pathogenic strain of SVDV, as well as a number of other enteroviruses. It shows only 98 base changes in comparison with a non-pathogenic strain of SVDV (Inoue et al., 1989, J. Gen. Virol. 70, 919-934). Fourteen of these nucleotide differences between the pathogenic and the non-pathogenic SVDV strains occur in the 5' non-coding region which, by analogy with the other picornaviruses, has been implicated in the efficiency with which the RNA is employed as mRNA. Additional differences found throughout the coding regions are largely conservative in nature. A number of residues are discussed as candidates for determinants of pathogenicity. This sequence has been submitted to the PIR database and has accession number A30061.
