Bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 (BPIV-3), is an important viral pathogen of cattle associated with bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC) and continues to cause serious economic losses for the global time industry. This study report the isolation, identification and molecular characterization of the first strain isolated in the Republic of Tatarstan. The partial M gene of the Russian isolate LD-9 and the vaccine strain PTK/86 were sequenced by Sanger method and were classified to genotype A of BPIV-3. The Russian isolate LD-9 showed 98.3% similarity to the reference strain SF, 97.37% to LEO17-1 from Uruguay when the Russian vaccine strain PTK45/86 was identical a 100% with the referent stain SF. This study provide a basis for a farther molecular investigation to control infections and sets related to the vaccine.
