Equine herpesvirus 2
|Equine herpesvirus 2|
|Group:||Group I (dsDNA)|
|Species:|| Equine herpesvirus 2 (EHV-2)|
Equine herpesvirus 2 (EHV-2) is a virus of the family Herpesviridae, originally known as equine cytomegalovirus due to its slow replication in tissue culture. However, complete sequencing of the EHV-2 genome has demonstrated that it is a member of the subfamily Gammaherpesvirinae, in the genus Rhadinovirus . . It has an uncertain role in respiratory disease in horses, but EHV-2 has been isolated from cases exhibiting symptoms such as coughing, conjunctivitis, and swollen submaxillary and parotid lymph nodes.
