Interpretive Summary: An isolate of BTV-1 was made in 2004 from a deer in Louisiana. Sequence data was generated from both the S5 and S7 genome segments of this isolate and compared to sequence generated from the South African BTV-1 prototype strain and to other BTV-1 sequences available from GenBank. Phylogenetic analysis based on this sequence data indicates a fairly close relationship between the US BTV-1 isolate and African isolates of BTV-1.
