Abstract

Previously, we described a disease syndrome in young turkeys caused by an enterovirus-like virus. The virus was designated an enterovirus-like virus based on size, morphology, and intracytoplasmic crystalline arrays of virus. In the present study, further characterization of the virus was performed to ascertain its classification. The virus has a buoyant density of 1.33 g/ml in CsCl and single-stranded RNA genome of approximately 7.5 kilobases. These combined characteristics indicate that this agent is an enterovirus. /// Anteriormente describimos un síndrome patológico en pavitos causado por un virus similar al enterovirus. El virus se designó como similar al enterovirus basado en su tamaño, morfología y la presencia de formaciones virales cristalinas intracitoplasmáticas. En este estudio se caracterizó aún más el virus para su clasificación. El virus tiene una densidad flotante de 1.33 g/ml en cloruro de Cesio (CsCl) y un genoma de RNA de cadena sencilla de aproximadamente 7.5 kilobases. Estas características combinadas indican que este agente es un enterovirus.
