Computer-assisted assignment of functional domains in the nonstructural polyprotein of hepatitis E virus: delineation of an additional group of positive-strand RNA plant and animal viruses.
Computer-assisted comparison of the nonstructural polyprotein of hepatitis E virus (HEV) with proteins of other positive-strand RNA viruses allowed the identification of the following putativeExpand
Consensus proposals for classification of the family Hepeviridae
The family Hepeviridae consists of positive-stranded RNA viruses that infect a wide range of mammalian species, as well as chickens and trout. A subset of these viruses infects humans and can cause aExpand
Proposed reference sequences for hepatitis E virus subtypes.
The nomenclature of hepatitis E virus (HEV) subtypes is inconsistent and makes comparison of different studies problematic. We have provided a table of proposed complete genome reference sequencesExpand
Isolation of a cDNA from the virus responsible for enterically transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis.
Major epidemic outbreaks of viral hepatitis in underdeveloped countries result from a type of non-A, non-B hepatitis distinct from the parenterally transmitted form. The viral agent responsible forExpand
Consensus proposals for classification of the family Hepeviridae.
Genetic Variability and the Classification of Hepatitis E Virus
ABSTRACT The classification of hepatitis E virus (HEV) variants is currently in transition without agreed definitions for genotypes and subtypes or for deeper taxonomic groupings into species andExpand
Chronic Infection With Camelid Hepatitis E Virus in a Liver Transplant Recipient Who Regularly Consumes Camel Meat and Milk.
There have been increasing reports of food-borne zoonotic transmission of hepatitis E virus (HEV) genotype 3, which causes chronic infections in immunosuppressed patients. We performed phylogeneticExpand
Hepatitis A virus: host interactions, molecular epidemiology and evolution.
Infection with hepatitis A virus (HAV) is the commonest viral cause of liver disease and presents an important public health problem worldwide. Several unique HAV properties and molecular mechanismsExpand
Restricted Enzooticity of Hepatitis E Virus Genotypes 1 to 4 in the United States
ABSTRACT Hepatitis E is recognized as a zoonosis, and swine are known reservoirs, but how broadly enzootic its causative agent, hepatitis E virus (HEV), is remains controversial. To determine theExpand
Molecular organization and replication of hepatitis E virus (HEV).
The recently characterized fecal-orally transmitted agent of hepatitis E (formerly known as enterically transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis) has been determined to be a new type of positive strand RNAExpand
