Detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome–associated coronavirus genes in palm civets*

Palm civet Nucleocapsid and polyprotein genes
Sequences detected (GenBank accession nos.)
Throat swab specimen Rectal swab specimen
007 + + Complete genome (AY572034)
010 + + Complete genome (AY572035)
014 + + Spike gene (AY572036)
018 + + ND
019 + + Spike gene (AY572037)
020 + + Complete genome (AY572038)

*Nucleocapsid and polyprotein genes were detected by nested reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction. Spike gene sequences were determined from rectal swab isolates.+, positive; ND, not detected.
