Abstract

Genetic recombination between different strains of (HCV) was investigated in three chimpanzees inoculated experimentally with factor VIII concentrate containing HCV subgenotypes 1a, 1b, 2b and 3a. A 750 bp long fragment from the HCV envelope region was amplified by RT-PCR and quasispecies were isolated by plasmid cloning. Nucleotide sequences derived from isolated quasispecies were screened for the presence of inter-subgenotypic recombination by using sequence analysis. Recombination between HCV subgenotype 1a and 1b was found in two animals; each recombinant variant differed by location of predicted crossover region or order of subgenotype 1a and 1b sequences.
