Abstract

Highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza A viruses (AIV) have caused outbreaks among domestic poultry and wild aquatic birds in many Asian, European, and African countries since 1997. In March 2006 an avian H5N1 influenza A virus was isolated from poultry in Israel. In the present study we molecularly characterized the hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) genes of eleven H5N1 viruses isolated from domestic poultry in Israel and Gaza in March–April 2006. Phylogenetic analysis of the HA and NA genes showed that the Israeli and Gazian viruses were closely related to viruses isolated in Egypt in 2006.We thank Mrs. Rivi Ascarelli-Goell, MSc, Mrs. Magda David, MSc, Mrs. Ekaterina Lapin and Mrs. Faina Golender for excellent technical assistance. This study was supported by the Kameya Grant of the Israel Ministry of Absorption; by Research Grant No. IS-3679-05 from BARD, the United States-Israel Binational Agricultural Research and Development Fund; and by Grant No. 847–0319 from the Poultry Association of the Israel Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
