Characterization of a Novel Coronavirus Associated with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome
In March 2003, a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV) was discovered in association with cases of severe acute respiratorysyndrome (SARS). The sequence of the complete genome of SARS-CoV was determined, andExpand

Molecular Evolution of the Human Enteroviruses: Correlation of Serotype with VP1 Sequence and Application to Picornavirus Classification
ABSTRACT Sixty-six human enterovirus serotypes have been identified by serum neutralization, but the molecular determinants of the serotypes are unknown. Since the picornavirus VP1 protein contains aExpand

Enterovirus 68 is associated with respiratory illness and shares biological features with both the enteroviruses and the rhinoviruses.
Enterovirus (EV) 68 was originally isolated in California in 1962 from four children with respiratory illness. Since that time, reports of EV68 isolation have been very uncommon. Between 1989 andExpand

Complete nucleotide sequence of enterovirus 71 is distinct from poliovirus.
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is capable of causing paralytic disease indistinguishable from poliomyelitis due to poliovirus. To determine the relationship of EV71 to poliovirus and other enteroviruses, twoExpand
