Abstract

The nucleotide sequences of spike (S) glycoprotein containing antigenic sites A and D of TGEV isolated in Korea were determined and compared with published sequences for TGEVs. The TGEV 133 and DAE5 strains had 97.40% nucleotide sequence similarity. The overall nucleotide sequence similarity of the 133 and DAE5 strains compared with other TGEV strains was between 96.86% and 99.15%. The similarity of the predicted amino acid sequence of the 133 and DAE5 strains was 94.93%. The TGEV 133 and DAE5 strains had 94.93-98.61% amino acid similarity with published sequences of other TGEV strains. The sequences of amino acid codons in the antigenic sites A and D were identical among all the viruses although there were several nucleotide changes in region containing antigenic sites A and D of Korean TGEV isolates. By phylogenetic analysis of the sequences, two Korean isolates 133 and DAE5 seemed to be derived from different lineages. These studies showed that a distinct difference in genome exists among TGEV field strains isolated in Korea.
