In this study, we determined the sequence of the coding region of an avian bornavirus detected in a blue-and-yellow macaw (Ara ararauna) with pathological/histopathological changes characteristic of proventricular dilatation disease. The genomic organization of the macaw bornavirus is similar to that of other bornaviruses, and its nucleotide sequence is nearly identical to the available partial parrot bornavirus 5 (PaBV-5) sequences. Phylogenetic analysis showed that these strains formed a… 

Sequence determination of a new parrot bornavirus‐5 strain in Japan: implications of clade‐specific sequence diversity in the regions interacting with host factors

Phylogenetic analysis showed that the genus Bornavirus is divided into three major clades and that PaBV‐5 belongs to clade 2, which contains avian viruses that exhibit infectivity to mammalian cells.

Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales: update 2017

The updated taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales is presented, with non-Latinized binomial species names replaced all paramyxovirus and pneumovirus species names, thereby accomplishing application of binomial Species names throughout the entire order.

Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales: update 2016

The updated taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales is presented as now accepted by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV).

Taxonomy of the order Mononegavirales: update 2019

Taxonomic reorganization of the family Bornaviridae

PAirwise Sequence Comparison of bornavirus genomes and Basic Local Alignment Search Tool comparison of genomic and protein sequences indicate that this genus should include at least five species, which is in line with biological characteristics of these viruses and their vertebrate hosts.

Sequence and genome organization of Borna disease virus

The cloning and complete sequence of the Borna disease virus genome is reported for the first time, revealing that BDV has a genomic organization similar to that of other members of the Mononegavirales order and suggesting a possible relationship between BDV and the plant rhabdoviruses.

Recovery of divergent avian bornaviruses from cases of proventricular dilatation disease: Identification of a candidate etiologic agent

These studies clearly demonstrate the existence of an avian reservoir of remarkably diverse bornaviruses and provide a compelling candidate in the search for an etiologic agent of PDD.

Genome Sequence of a Bornavirus Recovered from an African Garter Snake (Elapsoidea loveridgei)

The genome sequence is reported of a bornavirus identified in a wild-caught Loveridge's garter snake (Elapsoidea loveridgei) that has been associated with disease in both mammals and birds.

Detection of Avian bornavirus 5 RNA in Eclectus roratus
 with feather picking disorder

Interestingly, although the bird was persistently infected with ABV5 for at least 8 months, it had no clinical signs of PDD, these findings raise the importance of epidemiological studies of birds with diseases other than PDD.

Novel Borna Virus in Psittacine Birds with Proventricular Dilatation Disease

Pyrosequencing of cDNA from brains of parrots with proventricular dilatation disease showed 2 strains of a novel Borna virus, which confirmed virus presence in brain, proventriculus, and adrenal gland of 3 birds with PDD but not in 4 unaffected birds.

This approach has been used in several studies investigating fecal samples of livestock, and companion animal species, providing information on the diversity of animal fecal virome, helping the elucidation of the etiology of diarrheal disease in animals and identifying potential zoonotic and emerging viruses.

Nucleocytoplasmic Shuttling of Viral Proteins in Borna Disease Virus Infection

A comprehensive view of several unique mechanisms that BDV has developed to control its R NP trafficking is presented and the significance of BDV RNP trafficking in the replication cycle ofBDV is discussed.
