The complete genomes of the three tick-borne flaviviruses (genus Flavivirus, fam. Bunyaviridae) were sequenced: Povassan virus (POWV, strain LEIV-3070Prm, isolated from Haemophysalis logicornis in Primorsky Krai, Russia in 1977), Alma-Arasan virus (AAV, strain LEIV-1380Kaz, isolated from Ixodes persulcatus ticks in Kazakhstan in 1977) and Malyshevo virus (isolated from a pool of Aedes vexans nipponii mosquitoes, in the Khabarovsk Krai, Russia in 1978). It is shown that AAV and Malyshevo virus… Expand
Vectors, molecular epidemiology and phylogeny of TBEV in Kazakhstan and central Asia
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of the generated sequences indicates that TBEV strains found in Almaty Oblastʼ clusters in the Siberian subtype within two different clades at the nucleotide level, indicating that there are different influences on the circulating T BEV strains in south-eastern Kazakhstan.

Dissecting Flavivirus Biology in Salivary Gland Cultures from Fed and Unfed Ixodes scapularis (Black-Legged Tick)
TLDR
SG cultures are used as a translational tool for screening and identifying potential tick genes as potential countermeasure targets and the first to identify localization of TBFV multiplication in SG cultures from a fed tick and a tick transcript important for POWVmultiplication in the tick SG, an organ critical forTBFV transmission.

Powassan Virus—A New Reemerging Tick-Borne Disease
TLDR
This review highlights Powassan’s neurotropic presentation, epidemiology, diagnostic challenges, and prevalence, strong emphasis is placed on establishing diagnostic protocols, widespread PowASSan-specific IgM testing, role of the vector in disease presentation, and necessary preventive research. Expand
Genetic diversity and geographical distribution of the Siberian subtype of the tick-borne encephalitis virus.
TLDR
It was demonstrated that the Zausaev lineage is the most widely distributed among the TBEV-Sib lineages, and was detected in all studied regions except the Far East, while the Obskaya lineage was found only in Western Siberia. Expand
Chapter 11: General epidemiology of TBE
Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) exists in natural foci, which are areas where TBEV is circulating among its vectors (ticks of different species and genera) and reservoir hosts (usually rodentsExpand
Tick-Borne Flaviviruses, with a Focus on Powassan Virus
TLDR
It remains unclear whether Powassan virus is indeed an emerging threat or if enzootic cycles in nature remain more-or-less stable with periodic fluctuations of host and vector population sizes. Expand
Emerging arboviruses of clinical importance in Central Asia.
TLDR
This review provides the first comprehensive assessment of emerging arboviruses in Central Asia, with evidence that pathogens such as West Nile virus and sandfly fever virus have resulted in sporadic outbreaks of human disease across the region. Expand
Актуальность паразитологических исследований на юге российского Дальнего Востока
TLDR
Existing problems can be solved using proteomic, genomic, transcriptomic, and bioinformatics approaches that contribute to a better understanding of the biology of objects and are promising for identification of clinically important biological characteristics of parasitic organisms. Expand
