Identification of a Novel Subgroup of Koala Retrovirus from Koalas in Japanese Zoos
TLDR
The results indicate that the invasion of the koala population by KoRV-J may have occurred more recently than invasion by Ko RV-A, which was identified earlier this year. Expand
Isolation of koala retroviruses from koalas in Japan.
TLDR
The first report on the isolation of KoRV from koalas in a Japanese zoo is reported, with results found to be positive forKoRV proviruses. Expand
Heterogeneity of koala retrovirus isolates
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis suggests that KoRV‐B and KoRv‐J should be classified as the same subgroup, and it is found that the promoter activity of the KoR V‐J strain OJ‐4 is stronger than that of original KoRW‐A, suggesting that KoVV‐J may replicate more efficiently. Expand
Genetic diversity of feline morbilliviruses isolated in Japan.
TLDR
By using reverse transcription (RT)-PCR, it is found that three of 13 urine samples from cats brought to veterinary hospitals were positive for FmoPV, and sequence analysis of FmPVs showed genetic diversity; however, signatures of positive selection were not identified. Expand
Development and evaluation of a rapid molecular diagnostic test for Zika virus infection by reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification
TLDR
This portable RT-LAMP assay was highly specific for ZIKV, and enable rapid diagnosis of the virus infection, and provides new insights into ZikV molecular diagnostics and may improve preparedness for future outbreaks. Expand
Isolation of an Infectious Endogenous Retrovirus in a Proportion of Live Attenuated Vaccines for Pets
TLDR
This study isolated a feline infectious ERV (RD-114) in a proportion of live attenuated vaccines for pets and shows that the methods currently employed to screen veterinary vaccines for retroviruses should be reevaluated. Expand
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Evolutionarily Acquires Two Proteins, Vif and Protease, Capable of Antagonizing Feline APOBEC3
TLDR
It is demonstrated that FIV, a pathogenic lentivirus in domestic cats, antagonizes feline APOBEC3 proteins by both Vif and a viral protease, and can be a clue to elucidate the complicated evolutionary processes by which lentiviruses adapt to mammals. Expand
A Naturally Occurring Domestic Cat APOBEC3 Variant Confers Resistance to Feline Immunodeficiency Virus Infection
TLDR
Findings suggest that feline A3Z3 hap V may have been selected for escape from an ancestral FIV, the first evidence for an evolutionary “arms race” between the domestic cat and its cognate lentivirus. Expand
A naturally occurring bovine APOBEC3 confers resistance to bovine lentiviruses: implication for the co-evolution of bovids and their lentiviruses
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence, suggesting that a co-evolutionary arms race between bovids and lentiviruses occurred in Asia, and found that APOBEC3Z3 of gaur, a bovid in the genus Bos, acquired resistance to JDV Vif-mediated degradation after diverging from the other bovIDS through conversion of the structural composition of the loop 1 domain. Expand
Characterization of RD-114 Virus Isolated from a Commercial Canine Vaccine Manufactured Using CRFK Cells
TLDR
The entire nucleotide sequences of RD-114-related viruses isolated from CRFK cells and a vaccine manufactured usingCRFK cells were determined to be nearly identical to the authentic RD- 114 virus. Expand
