Studies of the interactions of vertebrates, viruses and arthropod vectors of these viruses were monitored in terms of different ecological groups of viruses transmitted by mosquitoes and ticks in Northern Eurasia in an area encompassing more than 15 million km2. About 90 viruses were isolated, including 24 new to science. Newly recognized infections of(More)
Abstract Influenza virus nucleoprotein (NP) binds to the viral genome RNA and forms the internal ribonucleoprotein complex of the virus particle. Avian and human influenza virus NP have characteristic differences at several amino acid positions. It is not known whether any of these differences can be recognized by antibodies. In the present study five(More)
The complete nucleotide sequences for 6 strains of the West Nile fever virus were determined. For the first time the complete nucleotide sequences of the Indian isolate and Krsn190 strain, that is the most far phylogenetically from all isolates known at present time were established. The scheme for separation of virus variants into 4 groups and criteria for(More)
The paper gives the results of sequence analysis of 150 positive samples in real-time RT-PCR, including 47 autopsy materials from patients (including 10 pregnant women), who died from fatal pneumonia mainly in November-December 2009, in whom the lifetime etiological diagnosis had not been made and hence no early etiotropic therapy performed. 70% of the(More)
The full-size genomes of 2 highly pathogenetic avian influenza (HPAI) virus strains isolated from a wild great-crested grebe (A/Grebe/Novosibirsk/29/05) and a domestic duck (A/Duck/Novosibirsk/56/05) in the tract of the Chany hollow, Barabino forest-steppe (Novosibirsk Region) during the epizootic outbreak in the summer of 2005. The reproductive properties(More)
Comprehensive virological, serological as well as genetic studies of the ecology of West Nile Virus (WNV) as well as of some other arboviruses were undertaken in different ecosystems in the territories of the Astrakhan Region and of the Kalmyk Republic. The main carriers (mosquitoes, ticks, birds and mammals) were defined as involved in the circulation of(More)
The paper presents the results of the first isolation of the new influenza virus in Moscow and the Russian Federation, which was similar to the swine A/IIV-Moscow/01/2009(H1N1)swl strain isolated on May 24, 2009 from a Russian arrived in Moscow from the USA on May 19, 2009. The antigenic, biological, and molecular genetic properties of this virus were(More)
The paper analyzes the amino acid sequence of the receptor-binding site of hemagglutinin (HA) in the variants of pandemic influenza A/H1N1 swl from 18 patients with moderate (n=1) and fatal (n=17) forms of the disease in 2009. Nine samples contained asparaginic acid at position 222 of HA1 (D). This site exhibited mutations in 9 samples: D222G (n=3), D222N(More)
The paper presents the results of the investigations of the development of a influenza A(H1N1)v pandemic, conducted by the D. I. Ivanovsky Research Institute of Virology, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, and collaborating laboratories in the European part of Russia, in the Urals, Siberia, and in the Far East. In the prepandemic period (April 27 - June(More)
