Human parechoviruses (HPeVs) are frequent pathogens with a seroprevalence of over 90% in adults. Recent studies on these viruses have increased the number of HPeV types to eight. Here we analyse the complete genome of one clinical isolate, PicoBank/HPeV1/a, and VP1 and 3D protein sequences of PicoBank/HPeV6/a, isolated from the same individual 13 months later. PicoBank/HPeV1/a is closely related to other recent HPeV1 isolates but is distinct from the HPeV1 Harris prototype isolated 50 years ago… CONTINUE READING
