Bottom Line: The full genome sequences of the 3 strains were determined.Sequence data indicated that the EHV-1 isolated from a polar bear in Germany is one of the zebra-borne EHV-1 and not a recombinant virus.These results indicated that zebra-borne EHV-1 is a subtype of EHV-1.

ABSTRACT
A strain of equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) was isolated from zebra. This strain, called "zebra-borne EHV-1", was also isolated from an onager and a gazelle in zoological gardens in U.S.A. The full genome sequences of the 3 strains were determined. They shared 99% identities with each other, while they shared 98% and 95% identities with the horse derived EHV-1 and equine herpesvirus type 9, respectively. Sequence data indicated that the EHV-1 isolated from a polar bear in Germany is one of the zebra-borne EHV-1 and not a recombinant virus. These results indicated that zebra-borne EHV-1 is a subtype of EHV-1.

Neighbor-joining phylogenic tree based on nucleotide sequences corresponding to 2023 to2832 of ORF30. Labels in the tree are accession numbers. All sequences were obtainedfrom GenBank. Numbers are bootstrap values greater than 70%. The tree was constructed bySplitsTree [9]. The scale bar is given by averagenumber of mutations per site.
