Abstract Background. Human coronavirus HKU1 (HCoV-HKU1), a new group 2 coronavirus, was first characterized in 2005 from 2 adults with pneumonia in Hong Kong, China. To the best of our knowledge, there is no other report to date about the detection of this new virus. We report a molecular method allowing for the detection of HCoV-HKU1 and also report the clinical presentation of 6 infected patients. Methods. We screened 141 specimens (135 nasal samples and 6 stool samples) received in February… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Human Coronavirus-HKU1 Infection Among Adults in Cleveland, Ohio
TLDR
Coronavirus-HKU1 accounted for 1.6% of adult respiratory infections and should be considered in differential diagnosis of severe respiratory illnesses among adults.
Evidence of human coroanvirus (229E), in patients with respiratory infection, Iran, 2015: the first report
TLDR
This is the first comprehensive study on determination of the role of human coronaviruses in respiratory infections in Iran and provides a novel insight into the epidemiology of HCoVs in Iran.
Prevalence and molecular epidemiology of human coronavirus HKU1 in patients with acute respiratory illness†
TLDR
The data suggest that at least two genotypes, A and B, of HCoV‐HKU1 with scattered silent mutations were circulating in Korea from 2007 to 2008, and one of them may have been the causative agent of acute respiratory illness in Korea.
Detection of human coronaviruses in simultaneously collected stool samples and nasopharyngeal swabs from hospitalized children with acute gastroenteritis
TLDR
Although HCoVs were more frequently detected in patients with AGE than in the control group, high prevalence of H coVs in NP swabs compounded by their low occurrence in stool samples and detection of other viruses in stool sample, indicate that HCoV probably play only a minor role in causing gastrointestinal illness in children <6 years old.
Outbreaks of human coronavirus in a paediatric and neonatal intensive care unit
TLDR
Data from a study of a 1-year period of HCoV outbreaks occurring during a prospective survey of NRVI in a paediatric and neonatal intensive care unit (PNICU) using new molecular techniques for H coV detection provide additional evidence for a possibly significant role of H CoV in NR VI in a PNICU.
Prevalence and Clinical and Molecular Characterization of Human Metapneumovirus in Children With Acute Respiratory Infection in China
TLDR
HMPV was frequently detected in the pediatric patients with ARTI in China and RSV was the most common coinfections virus and coinfection increased hospitalization rates.
Two cases of severe obstructive pneumonia associated with an HKU1-like coronavirus.
TLDR
The detection of a HKU1-like coronavirus in pediatric patients in the current study complement the most recent independent finding of similar or closely related coronaviruses in patients with respiratory diseases in France and Norway.

An Outbreak of Coronavirus OC43 Respiratory Infection in Normandy, France
TLDR
This study shows that an outbreak of HCoV OC43 respiratory infection was responsible for the lower respiratory tract symptoms observed in nearly one-third of patients identified by active surveillance for coronavirus infection.

  • 2005
TLDR
HCoV-NL63 is a significant pathogen that contributes to the hospitalization of children, and it was estimated to have caused 224 hospital admissions per 100,000 population aged ⩽6 years each year in Hong Kong.
A previously undescribed coronavirus associated with respiratory disease in humans.
TLDR
The identification and characterization of a not previously recognized coronavirus obtained from an 8-mo-old boy suffering from pneumonia is described, revealing that it is most closely related to porcine epidemic diarrhea virus and HCoV 229E.
Identification of a new human coronavirus
TLDR
Screening of clinical specimens from individuals suffering from respiratory illness identified seven additional HCoV-NL63-infected individuals, indicating that the virus was widely spread within the human population.
Biological and genetic characterization of a hemagglutinating coronavirus isolated from a diarrhoeic child
TLDR
The strain HECV‐4408 is a hemagglutinating enteric coronavirus that is biologically, antigenically and genomically more closely related to the virulent BCVLY138 than to HCV‐OC43.
Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus Phylogeny: toward Consensus
TLDR
SARS-CoV genome sequences have been used to define the phylogenetic position of SARSCoV among coronaviruses, and the situation from an insider’s point of view is clarified.

TLDR
On the basis of this report, coronaviruses should be considered as potential causative microorganisms of pneumonia in immunocompromised patients.
Replication of respiratory viruses, particularly influenza virus, rhinovirus, and coronavirus in HuH7 hepatocarcinoma cell line
TLDR
The kinetic study of the replication of influenza A and B viruses showed that there were infected cells in HuH7 and MDCK lines as early as 24 hr post‐infection, however, the replication was more rapid and intense on M DCK cells than on HuH6 cells.
Mouse Hepatitis Virus Strain JHM Infects a Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cell Line
TLDR
Transfection with the prototype mouse receptor, biliary glycoprotein, rendered HuH-7 cells susceptible to infection by other MHV strains as well, suggesting that JHM uses a receptor distinct from the classical MHV receptor to infect HuH,7 cells.
