*Individual primers are identified by the BTV serotype (e.g. BTV-6) followed by the number 2 (to indicate Seg-2), then a number to indicate the relative amino acid position of the primer within VP2, followed by F or R to indicate forward or reverse orientation.
**This primer pair also amplifies Seg-2 of BTV-14 and BTV-21, the most closely related serotypes to BTV-6 within nucleotype ‘C’ and it is therefore regarded as nucleotype ‘C’ specific.
