Nucleotide sequences of two regions of the genomes of 11 yellow fever virus (YFV) samples isolated from monkeys or humans with symptomatic yellow fever (YF) in Brazil in 2000, 2004, and 2008 were determined with the objective of establishing the genotypes and studying the genetic variation. Results of the Bayesian phylogenetic analysis showed that sequences generated from strains from 2004 and 2008 formed a new subclade within the clade 1 of the South American genotype I. The new subgroup is… 

Biological and Phylogenetic Characteristics of Yellow Fever Virus Lineages from West Africa

Analysis of phylogenetic relationships of full-length genomes from YFV strains isolated between 1973 and 2005 in a sylvatic context of West Africa confirmed genetic variability within one genotype by the identification of various YF lineages circulating in West Africa, and revealed differential growth behavior in human liver and insect cells.

Phylodynamics of Yellow Fever Virus in the Americas: new insights into the origin of the 2017 Brazilian outbreak

The modern-lineage caused all major YFV outbreaks detected in non-endemic South American regions since 2000, including the 2017 Brazilian outbreak, and its dissemination was coupled to the accumulation of several amino acid substitutions particularly within non-structural viral proteins.

Biological Characterization of Yellow Fever Viruses Isolated From Non-human Primates in Brazil With Distinct Genomic Landscapes

It is suggested that RJ 155 and PR4408 YFV isolates carry some genomic markers that increase infectivity in mammal hosts and neurovirulence in mice, which could contribute to discovering new molecular markers for the virulence of YFF.

Genomic and structural features of the yellow fever virus from the 2016-2017 Brazilian outbreak.

The complete genome of 12 YFV samples from mosquitoes, humans and non-human primates from the Brazilian 2017 epidemic is described to confirm that viral strains associated with the most severe YF epidemic in South America in the last 70 years display unique amino acid substitutions that are mainly located in highly conserved positions in non-structural proteins.

Yellow Fever Virus Maintenance in Trinidad and Its Dispersal throughout the Americas

A Bayesian phylogeographic analysis of over 100 prM/E gene sequences sampled from 8 South American countries suggested a Brazilian origin for YFV in the Americas and an overall dispersal rate of 182 km/year, with Brazil as the major source population for surrounding countries.

Dengue Virus Type 4 Phylogenetics in Brazil 2011: Looking beyond the Veil

The phylogenetic relationship of six strains of the first autochthonous cases of DENV-4 infection occurred in Sao Paulo State, Parana State and Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil, 2011 were studied and suggest that the virus might have been present in the region for some time, without being noticed by Health Surveillance Services due to a low level of circulation and a higher prevalence of DENVs.

Genomic and structural features of the Yellow Fever virus from the 2016-2017 Brazilian outbreak

Evidence demonstrated that the current Brazilian YFV carries unique amino acid signatures in the non-structural proteins and support the hypothesis that those substitutions may be affecting the viral fitness and transmissibility.

Distinct YFV Lineages Co-circulated in the Central-Western and Southeastern Brazilian Regions From 2015 to 2018

The results indicate the ongoing YFV outbreak in Southeastern Brazil originated from a dissemination event from GO almost 2 years before its recognition at the end of 2016, stressing the imperative importance of the continuous monitoring of YfV to aid decision-making for effective control policies.

Epizootics due to Yellow Fever Virus in São Paulo State, Brazil: viral dissemination to new areas (2016–2017)

Analysis of five nearly full length genomes of YFV from collected samples was consistent with evidence that the virus associated with the São Paulo outbreak originated in Minas Gerais, and showed that strains involved in the 2016–2017 outbreak in distinct Brazilian states intermingled in maximum-likelihood and Bayesian trees.



Phylogenetic and Evolutionary Relationships among Yellow Fever Virus Isolates in Africa

It is demonstrated that there are multiple genotypes of yellow fever (YF) virus in Africa and suggest independent evolution of YF virus in different areas of Africa.

Out of Africa: A Molecular Perspective on the Introduction of Yellow Fever Virus into the Americas

A phylogenetic analysis of the largest YFV data set compiled to date shows how gene sequence data can be used to test hypotheses of viral dispersal and demographics, and document the role of human migration in the spread of infectious disease.

Genetic variation in yellow fever virus: duplication in the 3' noncoding region of strains from Africa.

Examination of the nucleotide sequences of three regions of the genomes of 13 yellow fever (YF) virus isolates suggested that there were at least four major genotypes of YF virus, including one in Central/East Africa, one in West Africa, and two in South America.

Outbreak of jaundice and hemorrhagic fever in the Southeast of Brazil in 2001: Detection and molecular characterization of yellow fever virus

Seroconversion, virus isolation, histopathological and immunohistochemical findings, and reverse transcription‐polymerase chain reaction (RT‐PCR) identified yellow fever virus (YFV) as the etiological agent responsible for the outbreak.

Size Heterogeneity in the 3′ Noncoding Region of South American Isolates of Yellow Fever Virus

YF-XL-ΔRYF and YF- XL isolates showed growth kinetics and neuroinvasive characteristics comparable to those of typical South American YFV isolates, and mosquito infectivity trials demonstrated that both types of 3′ NCR variants were capable of replication and dissemination in a laboratory-adapted colony of A. aegypti mosquitoes.

Yellow fever in Pará State, Amazon region of Brazil, 1998-1999: entomologic and epidemiologic findings.

It is hypothesize that YF virus remains in an area after an outbreak by vertical transmission among Haemagogus mosquitoes.

Molecular detection and characterization of yellow fever virus in blood and liver specimens of a non‐vaccinated fatal human case

Alignment of the sequence obtained from a gene fragment amplified by RT‐semi‐nested PCR directly from a blood sample with those of African and South American yellow fever virus strains identified a Brazilian topotype as being responsible for the disease.

Nucleotide sequence variation of the envelope protein gene identifies two distinct genotypes of yellow fever virus

The dissemination ofyellow fever viruses from Africa to the Americas is supported by the close genetic relatedness of genotype IIA and IIB viruses and genetic evidence of a possible second introduction of yellow fever virus from West Africa, as illustrated by the TRINID79A virus isolate.

Yellow fever: a disease that has yet to be conquered.

Molecular epidemiologic data suggest there are seven genotypes of YFV that are geographically separated, and outbreaks of disease are more associated with particular genotypes, which present serious potential public health problems to large population centers.
