SARMIENTO PEREZ, Luis et al. Caracterización genómica de la cepa cubana de efecto citopático ligero. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 1998, vol.50, suppl.4, pp. 267-269. ISSN 1561-3054.
The genomic characterization of the strain of light cytopathic effect by nucleotide sequence is presented. It was possible to sequence 90 % of the strain of light cytopathic effect. A close relationship with Coxsackie A9 was observed. The greatest mutations occurred in the region of the genoma that codifies for the structural proteins. Therefore, it may be considered as a variant of Coxsackie A9 never reported before.
