The presence of avian pox in endemic birds in the Galápagos Islands has led to concern that the health of these birds may be threatened by avipoxvirus introduction by domestic birds. We describe here a simple polymerase chain reaction–based method for identification and discrimination of avipoxvirus strains similar to the fowlpox or canarypox viruses. This method, in conjunction with DNA sequencing of two polymerase chain reaction–amplified loci totaling about 800 bp, was used to identify two… Expand
Detection and Characterization of an Avipoxvirus in a Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) in Italy Using a Multiple Gene Approach
TLDR
Histologically, there was ballooning degeneration and large intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies consistent with avipoxvirus (APV) infection, and phylogenetic analyses assigned the virus to clade A (fowlpox virus), subclade A7, grouping with many other APVs previously isolated in birds of prey. Expand
The phylogenetic analysis of avipoxvirus in New Zealand.
TLDR
The results suggest that a variety of New Zealand bird species are susceptible to avipoxvirus infection, that there are more than two distinctive avip oxvirus subclades in New Zealand, and that the most prevalent A1 strain may have been introduced to New Zealand through introduced avian hosts such as passerines or poultry. Expand
Multiple gene typing and phylogeny of avipoxvirus associated with cutaneous lesions in a stone curlew
TLDR
A wild stone curlew was recovered in Sardinia, showing large wart-like lesions and nodules on both legs and toes, which resulted positive to poxvirus by PCR, and phylogenetic analyses assigned it to clade A, (Fowlpox virus, FWPV), subclade A2. Expand
Diversity, origins and virulence of Avipoxviruses in Hawaiian Forest Birds
TLDR
Preliminary experimental infections in native Hawai‘i ‘Amakihi (Hemignathus virens) suggest that the 4b-defined variants may be biologically distinct, with one variant appearing more virulent. Expand
Characterization of Fowlpox virus in chickens and bird-biting mosquitoes: a molecular approach to investigating Avipoxvirus transmission.
TLDR
Evidence for a potential link between birds and field-caught mosquitoes in the transmission of Fowlpox virus (FWPV) in Singapore is reported and the presence of avian host DNA in all mosquito pools is confirmed, suggesting a role for Cx. Expand
CHARACTERIZATION OF AVIAN POXVIRUS IN ANNA'S HUMMINGBIRD (CALYPTE ANNA) IN CALIFORNIA, USA
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses showed that the Anna's Hummingbird poxvirus sequence was distinguished as a unique subclade showing similarities with sequences isolated from Ostrich, Wild Turkey, falcons, Black-browed Albatross, Mourning Dove and White-tailed Eagle. Expand
Molecular Detection of Reticuloendotheliosis Virus 5′ Long Terminal Repeat Integration in the Genome of Avipoxvirus Field Strains from Different Avian Species in Egypt
TLDR
In the present study, 200 cutaneous nodular samples were collected from different avian species suspected to be infected with APVs from Dakahlia Governorate, Egypt and the detection and characterization of REV-5′LTR insertions in the APVs field isolates in Egypt for the first time were involved. Expand
Genomic characterization of two novel pathogenic avipoxviruses isolated from pacific shearwaters (Ardenna spp.)
TLDR
These are the first avipoxvirus complete genome sequences that infect marine seabirds and are likely to be considered a separate species. Expand
110 Years of Avipoxvirus in the Galapagos Islands
TLDR
This virus was introduced late in 1890′s and was dispersed among islands by a variety of mechanisms, including regular human movements among colonized islands, and represents an ongoing threat to the birds on the Galapagos Islands. Expand
Genetic characterization, distribution and prevalence of avian pox and avian malaria in the Berthelot’s pipit (Anthus berthelotii) in Macaronesia
TLDR
The range and prevalence of avian pox and malaria in Berthelot’s pipits throughout the species’ distribution were determined, and both avian malaria parasites found were Plasmodium spp. Expand

CHARACTERIZATION OF POXVIRUSES FROM FOREST BIRDS IN HAWAII
TLDR
Two strains of avian pox viruses isolated from cutaneous lesions in Hawaiian crows and an infected bird of the Apapane species, examined in 1994 and 1992, appear to represent different strains of Avipoxvirus. Expand
EPIZOOTIOLOGY AND EFFECT OF AVIAN POX ON HAWAIIAN FOREST BIRDS
TLDR
Native forest birds were more susceptible to avian pox infection than were introduced species, most likely to be infected during the wet season, and found to have a higher prevalence in mesic when compared to xeric forests. Expand
Galápagos Birds and Diseases: Invasive Pathogens as Threats for Island Species
TLDR
It is recommended that endemic birds be tested for susceptibility to disease outside the Galapagos so that protection efforts can be better designed to deal with actual threats. Expand
THE EPIZOOTIOLOGY AND ECOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF MALARIA IN HAWAIIAN LAND BIRDS
TLDR
Avian malaria probably did not reach epizootic proportions on Hawaii until after 1920, but since that time it has had a negative impact on the population dynamics of the native forest birds and is today a major limiting factor, restricting both abundance and distribution of these species on the island.

The detection of monkeypox in humans in the Western Hemisphere.
TLDR
This investigation documents the isolation and identification of monkeypox virus from humans in the Western Hemisphere and suggests that the prairie dogs had been exposed to at least one species of rodent recently imported into the United States from West Africa. Expand
Poxvirus genomes: a phylogenetic analysis.
The evolutionary relationships of 26 sequenced members of the poxvirus family have been investigated by comparing their genome organization and gene content and by using DNA and protein sequences forExpand
Psittacine pox virus: virus isolation and identification, transmission, and cross-challenge studies in parrots and chickens.
TLDR
Chickens vaccinated with fowl and pigeon pox vaccines and inoculated with the psittacine isolate developed lesions typical of avian pox, and this pox virus isolate may be regarded as a potential pathogen for chickens. Expand
The Genome of Canarypox Virus
TLDR
Comparison with the previously characterized fowlpox virus genome revealed avipoxvirus-specific genomic features, including large genomic rearrangements relative to other chordopoxviruses and novel cellular homologues and gene families. Expand
Tumorigenic poxviruses: genomic organization of malignant rabbit virus, a recombinant between Shope fibroma virus and myxoma virus.
TLDR
The genome of malignant rabbit virus (MRV), a newly discovered tumorigenic poxvirus of rabbits, has been analyzed using cloned DNA probes from Shope fibroma virus (SFV) and myxoma virus, and a two-stage model to rationalize the origin of MRV is proposed. Expand
A comparison of the genomes of capripoxvirus isolates of sheep, goats, and cattle.
TLDR
Nucleotide sequence divergence values, calculated from the numbers of nonconserved HindIII, PstI, AvaI, and SalI sites on the genomes of typical sheep, goat, and cattle isolate, indicated that the typical sheep and cattle isolates are more closely related to one another than to the typical goat isolate.
