Common evolutionary origin of aquareoviruses and orthoreoviruses revealed by genome characterization of Golden shiner reovirus, Grass carp reovirus, Striped bass reovirus and golden ide reovirus
Genetic analysis revealed homology in the genes of the aquareovirus and orthoreoviruses groups, indicating clear genetic relatedness between members of distinct genera, unique within the family Reoviridae.
Transfusion-associated Hepatitis E, France
The first case in France and the first case worldwide involving a child as blood recipient of HEV recently emerged as a transfusion-transmitted pathogen is described and HEV nucleotide sequences from the blood donor and recipient were identical.
Sequences of flavivirus-related RNA viruses persist in DNA form integrated in the genome of Aedes spp. mosquitoes.
These flavivirus-related integrated DNA sequences were detected in laboratory-bred and wild Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, demonstrating that their discovery is not an artefact resulting from the manipulation of mosquito cell lines, since they exist under natural conditions.
Coltiviruses and Seadornaviruses in North America, Europe, and Asia
Neurotropic virus disease is often misdiagnosed as Japanese encephalitis and should be considered as a separate disease rather than a replacement for encephalopathy.
Genetic analysis of full-length genomes and subgenomic sequences of TT virus-like mini virus human isolates.
The phylogenetic relationship between the complete genomic sequences of ten Japanese and one French isolate of TT virus-like mini virus (TLMV) suggested that ORFs 1 and 2 are probably functional, but this was not the case for a putative third ORF, ORF3.
Circular genomes related to anelloviruses identified in human and animal samples by using a combined rolling-circle amplification/sequence-independent single primer amplification approach.
Two genomes that are separated by a genetic divergence of 46 % were characterized in the cat's saliva, one of these creating a distinct phylogenetic branch (PRA1, 2019 nt) and highlight the potential of RCA-SISPA for detecting circular (or circularized) genomes.
Distribution and genetic analysis of TTV and TTMV major phylogenetic groups in French blood donors
This study provided the first picture of the genetic distribution of the major phylogenetic groups of members of the genus Anellovirus in a cohort of French voluntary blood donors, including patients with well‐characterized diseases.
Complete sequence characterization of the genome of the St Croix River virus, a new orbivirus isolated from cells of Ixodes scapularis.
Blot hybridizations and sequence comparisons of the conserved protein encoded by genome segment 2 (the T2 subcore shell protein) with previously identified orbiviruses confirm that SCRV is a distinct orbivirus species, unrelated to another tick-borne species, Great Island virus.
Identification of a third member of the Anellovirus genus (“small anellovirus”) in French blood donors
Summary.We demonstrate for the first time that a putative third member of the genus Anellovirus (TTV/TTMV) is present in the blood of healthy persons (20% prevalence), and also in their PBMNC and
Complete coding sequence of the Alkhurma virus, a tick-borne flavivirus causing severe hemorrhagic fever in humans in Saudi Arabia.
Analysis of structural genes, genetic distances, and evolutionary relationship indicate that ALKV and KFDV derived from a common phylogenetic ancestor and constitute two genetic subtypes of the same virus species according to current genetic criteria of classification.
