VP1 (95 Kilo Dalton (Kd)) molecular weight is the RNA dependent RNA polymerase protein of the virus (Kibenge and Dhama, 1997), VP2 (40Kd) forms the antigenic region, responsible for the induction of neutralizing antibodies and for serotype, VP3 (32 Kd) is a group specific antigen that is recognized by non neutralizing antibodies, some of which cross react with both serotypes, VP4 (28Kd) is a non structural polypeptide involved in auto processing of the polyprotein and VP5 has a regulatory function and play a key role in virus release and dissemination (Havarstein et al., 1990).
