The occurrence of outbreaks of peste des petits ruminants (PPR) in three districts of Tajikistan is described. The causal strain (PPRTajikistan) was characterized and the sequence of its N gene was compared with that of 43 other strains isolated since 1968 in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.The study demonstrated (1) the value of the Ngene as a target in comparing isolates obtained over an extended period of evolution, and (2) that clustering was related to the geographical origin of strains. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
