    The VP5 protein of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) was shown in previous reports to be involved in the cytopathogenicity of IBDV. Here, using a rescued VP5-deficient IBDV infectious clone, it was demonstrated that a lack of VP5 expression significantly hinders the release of viral progeny...
