46 Bluetongue Dating divergence times for bluetongue virus and epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus serotypes The nucleotide sequences of Seg-2 from BTV and EHDV provide a basis for the calculation of molecular evolutionary rates (MER) using Bayesian methodologies (Drummond and Rambaut, 2007). Upper and lower limits for the evolutionary rate of Seg-2 were estimated at 10À4 and 10À5 changes/site/year. These values were used to calculate the time at which different BTV serotypes diverged from a common ancestor (using the formula: divergence time = [geneticdistance/2*1/MER]).

Nomikou), India (personal communication: Dr. S. , 2004), Taiwan and Indonesia. Equine encephalosis virus Equine encephalosis virus is associated with disease of horses in southern Africa. The virus was first identified in 1967 from horses that died from an unknown peracute illness. Serological investigations revealed that widespread EEV infections of horses had occurred during the summer of 1967 but that Bluetongue virus, other orbiviruses and other reoviruses 35 infection had not occurred in South Africa to any appreciable extent in the preceding 10 years.

Kemerovo, Lipovnik and Tribec are among 36 serotypes of tick-borne viruses belonging to the GIV species. , 1970). More than 20 strains of Kemerovo virus were isolated during 1962 in the Kemerovo region of Russia from Ixodes persulcatus ticks and from human patients with meningoencephalitis. The virus, which was also isolated from birds, can infect Vero or BHK21 cells. , 1970). The virus is also suspected in the aetiology of some chronic neurological diseases, including polyradiculoneuritis and multiple sclerosis.
