Abstract:

Foot-and-mouth disease is one of the important animal virus known to be highly infectious and causing a serious trade barrier. For effective control of FMD there is a need for in depth understanding of the virus epidemiology. The present study has been undertaken to understand the molecular relationship between the strains across world in comparison to Indian vaccine strain and virus isolate of 2010. The study is done by comparing the nucleotide sequence of VP1 protein, known to induce neutralizing antibodies by phylogenetic analysis. Based on phylogenetic analysis we found that the disease in India is mainly caused by transboundary evolution of virus but not due to the vaccine strain.
