Montana Myotis leukoencephalitis virus (MMLV), a virus isolated from bats, causes an encephalitis in small rodents reminiscent of flavivirus encephalitis in humans. The complete MMLV genome is 10690 nucleotides long and encodes a putative polyprotein of 3374 amino acids. The virus contains the same conserved motifs in genes that are believed to be interesting antiviral targets (NTPase/helicase, serine protease and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase) as flaviviruses of clinical importance… CONTINUE READING
