..The single isolate from a wild cormorant was also classified into genotype VII, although it was different from the recent NDV epidemic strain in Japan. ..
Mase M, Mitake H, Inoue T, Imada T. Identification of group I-III avian adenovirus by PCR coupled with direct sequencing of the hexon gene. J Vet Med Sci. 2009;71:1239-42 pubmed
..The resulting PCR product contained diagnostically relevant hexon sequences that could be used to identify the group and type of avian adenovirus. ..

..In contrast, two isolates were classified as class I, and they were genetically closely related to strains mainly isolated in the U.S.A. ..

..This suggested that FAdV-4 from the HPS chickens in India and Pakistan was derived from a common ancestor, but the origin of the FAdV-4 from the HPS chickens in Japan was completely different. ..

. A novel genotype of avian infectious bronchitis virus isolated in Japan in 2009. J Vet Med Sci. 2010;72:1265-8 pubmed
..Furthermore, none of the antisera used in this study neutralized the index isolate (JP/Ibaraki/168-1/2009) in virus neutralization tests. These results suggest that the isolates are a novel IBV genotype in Japan (designated JP-IV). ..
Mase M, Nakamura K, Imada T. Characterization of Fowl adenovirus serotype 4 isolated from chickens with hydropericardium syndrome based on analysis of the short fiber protein gene. J Vet Diagn Invest. 2010;22:218-23 pubmed
..The use of PCR-RFLP analysis of short fiber genes may be useful to distinguish among FAdV-4 strains. ..
