    expression vectors) that can encode infectious or replication competent forms of

    any of the listed micro-organisms;

    (d) any nucleic acid sequence derived from the micro-organism which when inserted

    into any other living organism alters or enhances that organism’s ability to cause

    serious harm to animal health.

    2. Any reference in this Schedule to a toxin includes:

    (a) any nucleic acid sequence coding for the toxin, and
