Chinese sacbrood virus (CSBV) is a small RNA virus family belonging to the genus Iflavirus that causes larval death, and even the collapse of entire bee colonies. The virus particle is spherical, non-enveloped, and its viral capsid is composed of four proteins, although the functions of the structural proteins are unclear. In this study, we used codon(More)
We selected and sequenced the entire genomes of three strains of Chinese sacbrood virus (CSBV): LNQY-2008 (isolated in Qingyuan, Liaoning Province), SXYL-2015 (isolated in Yulin, Shanxi Province), and JLCBS-2014 (isolated in Changbaishan, Jilin Province), by VP1 amino acid (aa) analysis. These strains are endemic in China and infect Apis cerana. Nucleotide(More)
The Chinese sacbrood virus (CSBV) was first isolated from Apis cerana in 1972. However, the biological characteristics of the CSBV that naturally infects Apis mellifera, causing larval death, have not been reported yet. In the present study, natural CSBV infection was evaluated using clinical symptoms of A. mellifera larvae, RT-PCR, electron microscopy,(More)
