||Avian entero-like virus (AELV) 2
(EF84/700) was isolated from a healthy chicken in Northern Ireland
(McNulty et al., 1987). Althought AELV-1, -3 and -4 have
been reclassified as
(McNulty et al., 1990; Todd et al., 2009), AELV-2
RNA was not amplified with astrovirus-specific primers and remains a
candidate picornavirus (Todd et al., 2009).
