Feline morbillivirus (FmoPV) is an emerging virus that was recently discovered in domestic cats with chronic nephritis. Despite the potential role of FmoPV in chronic nephritis, little is known about its biological characteristics. In this study, we established a quantitative assay of FmoPV by using an indirect immunofluorescence technique. Viral titers of FmoPV were determined in one week. Treatment with polybrene® or trypsin which was previously used in virus isolation did not augment the… Expand
In vitro host range of feline morbillivirus
TLDR
Results indicate that the receptor (s) for FmoPV are ubiquitously expressed in cats, which suggests least threatening of cross-species transmission of FMoPV from cats to humans. Expand
Feline Morbillivirus, a New Paramyxovirus Possibly Associated with Feline Kidney Disease
TLDR
There is a potential association between FeMV infection and feline kidney diseases, such as tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) and chronic kidney diseases (CKD), which are known to significantly affect feline health and survival. Expand
Rapid detection of feline morbillivirus by a reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification
TLDR
The FmoPV RT-LAMP assay is rapid, simple and highly specific for the detection of FMoPV, and thus, it would be a reliable detection method for FMOPV. Expand
Feline Morbillivirus Infection in Domestic Cats: What Have We Learned So Far?
TLDR
This review summarizes the current knowledge of FeMV infection, including genetic diversity ofFeMV strains, epidemiology, pathogenicity, and clinicopathological findings observed in naturally infected cats. Expand
Discovery and current research status of feline morbillivirus.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of its genome sequence indicates that FeMV is the most closely related to the members of genus morbillivirus, although FeMv is relatively distant in the phylogenetic analysis, and its target tissues and pathogenicity are different from the other members of the genus. Expand
Feline morbillivirus in northwestern Italy: first detection of genotype 1-B
TLDR
Data reported suggest the presence of a FeMV sub-cluster distinct from the strain previously isolated in Italy, whose role in renal disorders remains uncertain. Expand
Epidemiology, pathological aspects and genome heterogeneity of feline morbillivirus in Italy
TLDR
Tropism for different cellular types such as inflammatory cells residing in blood vessels of kidney and brain, airway epithelial cells, alveolar macrophages and to a lesser extent, the central nervous system, was demonstrated. Expand
Feline morbillivirus-1 in dogs with respiratory diseases.
TLDR
FeMV-1 was successfully isolated from a necropsied dog and from two living dogs, all with respiratory illnesses, which supports FeMV infection in dogs, and expands the known tropism of this virus to a non-felid host. Expand
Genome characterization of feline morbillivirus from Italy
TLDR
The existence in Germany and Turkey of FeMVs from cats divergent from Piuma/2015, suggests the presence of FeV heterogeneity in Europe as it has been described previously in Japan and China. Expand
First detection of Feline morbillivirus infection in white-eared opossums (Didelphis albiventris, Lund, 1840), a non-feline host.
TLDR
The first molecular detection of the FeMV RNA associated with pathological and immunohistochemical findings in a synanthropic marsupial, the white-eared opossum (Didelphis albiventris), inhabiting peri-urban areas of north central Parana, Southern Brazil, reinforces the possibility of the opossums to be a disseminator of this virus among domestic and wild animals.

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

TLDR
Histological examination of necropsy tissues in two FmoPV-positive cats revealed interstitial inflammatory infiltrate and tubular degeneration/necrosis in kidneys, with decreased cauxin expression in degenerated tubular epithelial cells, compatible with tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN). Expand
Existence of feline morbillivirus infection in Japanese cat populations
TLDR
The existence of FMoPV infection in Japanese cats is demonstrated and the method for detection of the FmoPV RNA from kidney tissues prepared for pathology examinations is established, which is useful for studies on the pathogenicity of the virus. Expand
Isolation and molecular characterization of canine distemper virus from India
TLDR
First report of CDV isolation from clinical cases in India, with partial “N” gene sequencing revealed that the Ind/Andaman 01/07 virus was highly divergent from the rest of the CDV isolates and from the vaccine strain. Expand
Canine distemper encephalomyelitis: variation with virus strain.
TLDR
Current concepts of the pathogenesis of canine distemper encephalomyelitis (CDE) are discussed and a basis for the strain-dependent clinical and pathological expression of CDE is proposed. Expand
Establishment of a LacZ marker rescue assay to detect infectious RD114 virus.
TLDR
Among four human cell lines examined, TE671 cells (human rhabdomyosarcoma) were most susceptible to RD114 virus and supported RD114 replication efficiently and the limiting diluted sample was detected at 12 days post-inoculation by the LacZ marker rescue assay. Expand
Virus inactivation of plasma‐derived proteins by pasteurization in the presence of guanidine hydrochloride
TLDR
A new technology for efficient inactivation or removal of parvovirus B19 and other small, nonenveloped viruses, which may be present in human blood and may contaminate plasma‐derived therapeutics is described. Expand
Characterization of an in vitro persistent-state measles virus infection: establishment and virological characterization of the BGM/MV cell line
TLDR
The parameters of a persistent-state measles virus infection in BGM/MV cells were examined and the time of disappearance of viral cytopathic effect corresponded to the time at which morphological homogeneity was reached. Expand
Interferon Production by Inactivated Newcastle Disease Virus in Cell Cultures and in Mice
TLDR
A comparison was made of the effects of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation or heating at 56 C on the interferon-stimulating capacity of Newcastle disease virus in primary chick embryo fibroblast (CE) cultures, in L-cell cultures, and in the intact mouse, indicating the critical importance of the host cell system used forinterferon production.

Canine Distemper Virus and Measles Virus Fusion Glycoprotein Trimers: Partial Membrane-Proximal Ectodomain Cleavage Enhances Function
TLDR
It is envisage that selective loss of the membrane anchor in the external subunits of circularly arranged F protein trimers may disengage them from pulling the membrane centrifugally, thereby facilitating fusion pore formation and diminished fusion activity in the context of a recombinant CDV.
