6) [16]. In tissue culture two BVDV biotypes, cytopathogenic BVDV (cpBVDV) and noncytopathogenic BVDV (noncpBVDV), can be distinguished [1] (Table 1). Both biotypes are involved in pathogenesis of mucosal disease (MD), the most severe clinical manifestation of BVDV infections.

Two clusters (the first one from amino acid residue 390 to 410 and the second from 474-480) with extensive variation are easily identified in the graph. The location of the clusters correspond to those in HCV type I and type II described by Hijikata et al. [27]. Discussion We analyzed parts of the RNA sequences of the El and E2 gene of different HCV isolates from Eastern and South Eastern European countries. All isolates have high homologies to genotype II of HCV which was first described in Japan.
