The 5'-terminal palindrome of the ADV-G strain of Aleutian mink disease parvovirus (ADV) was molecularly cloned and sequenced. A full-length molecular clone of ADV-G, denoted pXVB, was then constructed. When this clone was transfected into cell cultures, infectious ADV could be rescued. Virus derived from pXVB was nonpathogenic for adult mink, as is the parent ADV-G strain.
