To determine disease seroprevalence, commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs; Idexx Inc, West Brook, ME, USA) were performed for infectious bursal disease (IBD, gumboro disease), avian encephalomyelitis virus (AE, Picornaviridae), chicken anemia virus (CAV, Circoviridae), Newcastle disease virus (NDV, Paramyxoviridae), avian influenza (Orthomyxoviridae, type A), avian infectious bronchitis (IBV, coronavirus), Mycoplasma gallisepticum, and Mycoplasma synoviae (University of Georgia Poultry Diagnostic and Research Center, Athens, GA, USA).
Chicken anemia virus (CAV), initially the sole member of the genus Gyrovirus (family Circoviridae), possesses a genome of [approximately equal to] 2.
The characteristics of its genome--a single, closed molecule of circular, negative-sense DNA [approximately equal to] 2,300 nt long--and sequence homology with the chicken anemia virus (CAV) have suggested that HGyV might be the first human-infecting member of the genus Gyrovirus, which is part of the family Circoviridae and encompasses only 1 previously known species, CAV (2).
