AbstractH9N2 influenza viruses have become enzootic in terrestrial poultry populations from Egypt and the Middle East, across South, South East and East Asia. H9N2 viruses have sporadically infected humans and swine and have provided segments, through reassortment, to the Asian highly pathogenic H5Nx viruses. Two main lineages are found in these viruses, the widely distributed G1 lineage and the Ck/Bei or Y280-like lineage found in East Asia, particularly China. Chickens are the primary hosts for these viruses, but they are also found in minor poultry, especially in the case of G1-like viruses in China. In this study we sought to characterise the H9N2 viruses found in poultry in southern China and the extent of their reassortment with other influenza viruses, particularly the highly pathogenic H5N1 viruses.
