Abstract

Senecavirus A (SVA) is associated with vesicular disease in swine and the acute death of neonatal piglets. Here, senecavirus A was isolated from a pig displaying vesicular disease in Northeast China. The virus was designated as SVA/HLJ/CHA/2016 and its full-length nucleotide sequence was determined and analyzed in comparison with other known SVA strains. The complete genome sequence of SVA/HLJ/CHA/2016 shares high nucleotide identities, of 93.8 to 99%, with previously reported SVA full-length genomes. Phylogenetic analysis of both the SVA full-length genomes and the VP1 genes revealed that the SVA/HLJ/CHA/2016 strain is closely related to the 2015 US strains, instead of other China isolates. Our finding provides evidence that SVA infection of pigs has occurred in Northeast China, and the importance of SVA surveillance in China should be emphasized.
