Genetic and antigenic characterization of novel pestivirus genotypes: implications for classification.
Currently, the genus Pestivirus comprises the four approved species Bovine viral diarrhea virus 1 (BVDV-1), BVDV-2, Classical swine fever virus (CSFV), and Border disease virus (BDV) and oneExpand

Temporal Modulation of an Autoprotease Is Crucial for Replication and Pathogenicity of an RNA Virus
ABSTRACT Pestiviruses belong to the family Flaviviridae, and their genome is a single-stranded RNA of positive polarity encoding one large polyprotein which is further processed into mature proteins.Expand

Phylogenetic analysis of pestiviruses from domestic and wild ruminants.
Infections with pestiviruses occur in cattle, sheep, pigs and also in numerous other ungulate species. In the present study, pestiviruses from goat, buffalo, deer and giraffe were analysed at theExpand

ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profile: Flaviviridae
The Flaviviridae is a family of small enveloped viruses with RNA genomes of 9000–13 000 bases. Most infect mammals and birds. Many flaviviruses are host-specific and pathogenic, such as hepatitis CExpand

Genetic diversity of pestiviruses: identification of novel groups and implications for classification.
The complete Npro coding sequences were determined for 16 pestiviruses isolated from cattle, pig, and several wild ruminant species including reindeer, bison, deer, and bongo. Phylogenetic analysisExpand

Evidence for the presence of two novel pestivirus species.
The genus Pestivirus of the family Flaviviridae comprises four species, namely Bovine viral diarrhea virus-1 (BVDV-1), BVDV-2, Border disease virus (BDV), and Classical swine fever virus (CSFV).Expand

Clinical course of infection and viral tissue tropism of hepatitis C virus–like nonprimate hepaciviruses in horses
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) has a very narrow species and tissue tropism and efficiently replicates only in humans and the chimpanzee. Recently, several studies identified close relatives to HCV inExpand

Presence of atypical porcine pestivirus (APPV) genomes in newborn piglets correlates with congenital tremor
Pestiviruses are highly variable RNA viruses belonging to the continuously growing family Flaviviridae. A genetically very distinct pestivirus was recently discovered in the USA, designated atypicalExpand

Variability and Global Distribution of Subgenotypes of Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus
Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) is a globally-distributed agent responsible for numerous clinical syndromes that lead to major economic losses. Two species, BVDV-1 and BVDV-2, discriminated on theExpand
