The complete nucleotide sequences for 6 strains of the West Nile fever virus were determined. For the first time the complete nucleotide sequences of the Indian isolate and Krsn190 strain, that is the most far phylogenetically from all isolates known at present time were established. The scheme for separation of virus variants into 4 groups and criteria for determination the group to which the isolate belongs are suggested. 

Topics from this paper

Molecular typing of West Nile Virus, Dengue, and St. Louis encephalitis using multiplex sequencing.
An assay to simultaneously identify three of the clinically important flaviviruses (West Nile Virus, Dengue, and St. Louis encephalitis) and some of the subtypes of WNV is developed using multiplex sequencing technology. Expand
West Nile virus isolates from India: evidence for a distinct genetic lineage.
This study documents circulation of WNV strains typical to India for 27 years and the introduction of lineage 1 strains during 1967-1968, indicating strongly that WNV should be classified into five genetic lineages, with Indian viruses constituting the distinct genetic lineage 5. Expand
Novel Flavivirus or New Lineage of West Nile Virus, Central Europe
Rabensburg virus, isolated from Culex pipiens mosquitoes in central Europe, represents a new lineage of West Nile virus or a novel flavivirus of the Japanese encephalitis virus group.

Although stable in its evolutionary structure, WNV has demonstrated the capacity for rapidly adapting to both vertebrate hosts and invertebrate vectors and will likely continue to exploit novel ecological niches as it adapts to novel transmission foci. Expand
Characterization of Rabensburg Virus, a Flavivirus Closely Related to West Nile Virus of the Japanese Encephalitis Antigenic Group
Evaluating vector competence and capacity for vertical transmission in Cx. Expand
European Surveillance for West Nile Virus in Mosquito Populations
The current status of WNV in mosquito populations across Europe is reviewed and how this is informing the understanding of virus epidemiology is reviewed, and some of the difficulties encountered when applying a cost-effective surveillance programme are highlighted. Expand
Virus West Nile en Argentina: un agente infeccioso emergente que plantea nuevos desafíos
An updated analysis regarding the ecoepidemiology of West Nile virus is provided, and basic insights related to basic virological and epidemiological concepts are given in order to call the attention of ornithologists on the relationship between pathogens and bird conservation. Expand
Evaluation of Potential West Nile Virus Vectors in Volgograd Region, Russia, 2003 (Diptera: Culicidae): Species Composition, Bloodmeal Host Utilization, and Virus Infection Rates of Mosquitoes
The authors' data suggest that the primary WNV vectors in the Volgograd region were C. pipiens and Cx. Expand
Vector-Virus Interactions and Transmission Dynamics of West Nile Virus
This chapter concentrates on selected components of the virus-vector-vertebrate interrelationship, focusing specifically on how interactions between vector, virus, and environment shape the patterns and intensity of WNV transmission. Expand
Functional Analysis of Host Cell Proteins and Stress Responses that Inhibit West Nile Virus Infection
The data suggest that natural WNV infections evade the cell SG response by suppressing the amplification of viral RNA until cytoplasmic membranes have been remodeled to protect replication complexes from detection. Expand
