Morbillivirus and pilot whale deaths, Mediterranean Sea

Investigation article published in Emerging Infectious Diseases

May 1st, 2008

An outbreak of a lethal morbillivirus infection of long-finned pilot whales occurred in the Mediterranean Sea from the end of October 2006 through April 2007. Sequence analysis of a 426-bp conserved fragment of the morbillivirus phosphoprotein gene indicates that the virus is more closely related to dolphin morbillivirus than to pilot whale morbillivirus
