In March 2003, a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV) was discovered in association with cases of severe acute respiratorysyndrome (SARS). The sequence of the complete genome of SARS-CoV was determined, and the initial characterization of the viral genome is presented in this report. The genome of SARS-CoV is 29,727 nucleotides in length and has 11 open reading frames, and its genome organization is similar to that of other coronaviruses. Phylogenetic analyses and sequence comparisons showed that SARS… Expand

Molecular biology of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus
  • J. Ziebuhr
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Current Opinion in Microbiology
  • 2004
TLDR
The SARS epidemic prompted a variety of studies on multiple aspects of the coronavirus replication cycle, yielding both rapid identification of the entry mechanisms of SARS-CoV into host cells and valuable structural and functional information on SARS -CoV proteins. Expand
The Genome Sequence of the SARS-Associated Coronavirus
TLDR
The genome sequence reveals that the severe acute respiratory syndrome–associated coronavirus known as the Tor2 isolate is only moderately related to other known coronaviruses, andylogenetic analysis of the predicted viral proteins indicates that the virus does not closely resemble any of the three previously known groups of coronavirs. Expand
Identification and Characterization of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Subgenomic RNAs
first recognized in Guangdong Province, China, in November 2002, and its causative agent was identified as novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Coronaviruses are the largest RNA viruses, containing aExpand
Characterization of Persistent SARS-CoV Infection in Vero E6 Cells
TLDR
A human intestinal cell line, LoVo, was shown to permit SARS-CoV infection, resulting in the establishment of persistent infection, however, the mechanism of persistence has yet to be clarified. Expand
Antigenicity and Immunogenicity of SARS-CoV
TLDR
Characterization on the antigenicity and immunogenicity of SARS-CoV is important for developing effective diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. Expand
Bats Are Natural Reservoirs of SARS-Like Coronaviruses
TLDR
It is reported that species of bats are a natural host of coronaviruses closely related to those responsible for the SARS outbreak, and these viruses display greater genetic variation than SARS-CoV isolated from humans or from civets. Expand
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Entry as a Target of Antiviral Therapies
TLDR
The role of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) as an obligate cellular receptor for SARS-CoV contributed to understanding of the SARS -CoV entry process, and helped to characterize two targets of antiviral therapeutics: the Sars-Cov spike protein and ACE2. Expand
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (SARS-CoV)
  • T. Tong
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Perspectives in Medical Virology
  • 2006
TLDR
Molecular studies dissected the adaptation of this virus as it jumped from an intermediary animal, the civet, to humans, thus providing valuable insights into processes of molecular emergence. Expand
Mutational patterns correlate with genome organization in SARS and other coronaviruses
TLDR
Using cumulative skew diagrams, it is found that mutational patterns in the SARS-CoV genome were strikingly different from other coronaviruses in terms of mutation rates, although they were in general agreement with the model of the coronavirus lifecycle. Expand
Understanding the accessory viral proteins unique to the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus
TLDR
In-depth molecular and biochemical characterizations of the SARS-CoV accessory proteins, which have no homologues in other coronaviruses, may offer clues as to why this virus causes such a severe and rapid attack in humans, while other coronAViruses that infect humans seem to be more forgiving.

The Genome Sequence of the SARS-Associated Coronavirus
TLDR

Expand
Coronavirus as a possible cause of severe acute respiratory syndrome
TLDR
Serological and molecular tests specific for the virus permitted a definitive laboratory diagnosis to be made and allowed further investigation to define whether other cofactors play a part in disease progression. Expand
The Coronaviridae
TLDR
The family Coronaviridae comprises a monogeneric group of 11 viruses which infect vertebrates by horizontal transmission via the fecal/oral route, and is responsible main for respiratory and gastrointestinal disorders. Expand
Targeted Recombination within the Spike Gene of Murine Coronavirus Mouse Hepatitis Virus-A59: Q159 Is a Determinant of Hepatotropism
TLDR
This is the first report of the isolation of recombinant viruses containing a site-directed mutation, encoding an amino acid substitution, within the spike gene of any coronavirus, and will allow us to begin to map the molecular determinants of pathogenesis within the Spike glycoprotein. Expand
The Membrane M Protein Carboxy Terminus Binds to Transmissible Gastroenteritis Coronavirus Core and Contributes to Core Stability
TLDR
It is proposed that the M protein is embedded within the virus membrane and that the C region, exposed to the interior face of the virion in a population of these molecules, interacts with the nucleocapsid to which it is anchored, forming the core. Expand
Coronavirus Particle Assembly: Primary Structure Requirements of the Membrane Protein
TLDR
The results supported a critical role for this domain of M in viral assembly, although the M carboxy terminus was more tolerant of alteration in the complete virion than in virus-like particles, likely because of the stabilization of virions by additional intermolecular interactions. Expand
Internal entry of ribosomes on a tricistronic mRNA encoded by infectious bronchitis virus
TLDR
The results suggest that translation of the most distal of the three ORFs, that for 3c, is mediated by an unconventional, cap-independent mechanism involving internal initiation, similar to those described for picornaviruses. Expand
Full-Length Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Genomes from Subtype C-Infected Seroconverters in India, with Evidence of Intersubtype Recombination
TLDR
Because these clones were obtained from Indian seroconverters, they are likely to facilitate vaccine-related efforts in India by providing potential antigens for vaccine candidates as well as for assays of vaccine responsiveness. Expand
A new model for coronavirus transcription.
TLDR
A new model for coronavirus transcription is proposed, called 3' discontinuous extension of negative strands, which predicts that subgenome-length negative strands would be derived directly by transcription using the genome RNA as a template, which would make negative strand synthesis discontinuous and subgenomic mRNA synthesis continuous. Expand
Internal ribosome entry in the coding region of murine hepatitis virus mRNA 5.
TLDR
The in vitro translation of synthetic mRNAs shows that a synthetic mRNA containing both ORFs is functionally bicistronic, and concludes that the translation of ORF 5b is mediated by the internal entry of ribosomes. Expand
