Abstract

Two types of strains of serotype I of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) have been described, on the basis of their ability (IBDV-TC) or inability (IBDV-BU) to infect chicken embryonic cells in culture. However, both types infect B lymphocytes in the bursa of Fabricius of young chickens. To determine the molecular basis for tissue culture infectivity, virus recombinants with chimeric segments A were constructed from IBDV-TC and IBDV-BU by reverse genetics. The region responsible for the different phenotypes was located in VP2. Site-directed mutagenesis identified single amino acids that are responsible for the restriction in infectivity. However, the appropriate amino acid exchanges are strain-specific.
