Abstract

Sequence analysis was performed of all or part of the genes encoding the fusion (F), polymerase (L) and attachment (G) proteins of two French non-A/non-B avian pneumovirus (APV) isolates (Fr/85/1 and Fr/85/2). The two isolates shared at least 99·7% nt and 99·0% aa sequence identity. Comparison with the F genes from subgroup A, subgroup B or Colorado APVs revealed nt and aa identities of 70·0–80·5% and 77·6–97·2%, respectively, with the L gene sharing 76·1% nt and 85·3% aa identity with that of a subgroup A isolate. The Fr/85/1 and Fr/85/2 G genes comprised 1185 nt, encoding a protein of 389 aa. Common features with subgroup A and subgroup B G proteins included an amino-terminal membrane anchor, a high serine and threonine content, conservation of cysteine residues and a single extracellular region of highly conserved sequence proposed to be the functional domain involved in virus attachment to cellular receptors. However, the Fr/85/1 and Fr/85/2 G sequences shared at best 56·6% nt and 31·2% aa identity with subgroup A and B APVs, whereas these isolates share 38% aa identity. Phylogenetic analysis of the F, G and L genes of pneumoviruses suggested that isolates Fr/85/1 and Fr/85/2 belong to a previously unrecognized APV subgroup, tentatively named D. G-based oligonucleotide primers were defined for the specific molecular identification of subgroup D. These are the first G protein sequences of non-A/non-B APVs to be determined.
