Porcine kobuvirus was first identified in early 2007 in Hungary. Originally thought to be confined to the intestine, almost 2 years later the virus was found in the blood of clinically healthy pigs on the same farm. Porcine kobuvirus may be widely distributed on pig farms worldwide.

Complete Genome Sequence of Porcine Kobuvirus Strain WUH1

The complete genome sequence of porcine kobuvirus strain WUH1 isolated from piglets with severe diarrhea is reported, which will help toward understanding the molecular and evolutionary characteristics of the porCine k Kobuvirus.

Molecular detection of porcine kobuviruses in pigs in Korea and their association with diarrhea

Statistical analysis of the porcine kobuvirus positive rate between diarrheic and healthy pigs as well as a survey for other enteric pathogens in diarrheics pigs suggests that porcineskobuviruses may play a role as a causative agent of gastroenteritis in pigs.

Emerging of canine kobuvirus in dogs in China, 2015

The present study suggested that the CaKoVs had established infection in Chinese dog population, and the systematic epidemiological investigation should be further carried out to evaluate the prevalence of the Ca KoV infection in China.

Identification and Characterization of Porcine Kobuvirus Variant Isolated from Suckling Piglet in Gansu Province, China

It is suggested that mutations and recombination events may have contributed to the high level of genetic diversity of porcine kobuviruses and serve as a driving force in its evolution.

Phylogenetic analysis of kobuviruses and astroviruses from Korean wild boars: 2016–2018

Phylogenetic analysis revealed that 134 PKoV isolates belonged to diverse lineages within the species Aichivirus C; however, one strain (WKoV16CN-8627) clustered with bovine kobuvirus (Aichiv virus B).

First report and genetic characterization of feline kobuvirus in diarrhoeic cats in China

The results indicated that Fe KoV has rapidly mutated since it was first discovered, and this study will help to better understand FeKoV's epidemiology, evolutionary pattern and genetic diversity.

First detection of kobuvirus in farm animals in Brazil and the Netherlands.




Isolation and Molecular Characterization of Aichi Viruses from Fecal Specimens Collected in Japan, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam

Aichi virus is a new member of the family Picornaviridae, genus Kobuvirus, and is associated with human gastroenteritis and was detected in 28 of 912 fecal specimens collected in Japan, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam during 2002 to 2005.

Bovine Kobuvirus in Europe

Aichi virus and bovine kobuvirus were first isolated in Japan and have been also detected in other countries in Asia, Europe, South America, and northern Africa.

Candidate New Species of Kobuvirus in Porcine Hosts

The aim of the study was to detect porcine calicivirus (norovirus and sapovirus) in domestic pigs by using reverse transcription–PCR (RT-PCR) and a new candidate species of kobuvirus was reported.

Molecular characterization of the first Aichi viruses isolated in Europe and in South America

The nucleotide sequences of both a German and a Brazilian isolate were determined, analyzed, and compared to known Aichi sequences, and the German strain turned out to be a member of genogroup A, while the Brazilian belonged to genogroups B.

Molecular Epidemiology of the Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus Outbreak in the United Kingdom in 2001

The ability to recover particular transmission pathways of acutely acting RNA pathogens from genetic data will help resolve uncertainties about how virus is spread and could help in the control of future epidemics.

Acute Infantile Gastroenteritis Associated with Human Enteric Viruses in Tunisia

No significant differences were observed between rotavirus and norovirus infections with regard to the incidence and the clinical severity of the disease, especially in dehydration.

Isolation and characterization of a new species of kobuvirus associated with cattle.

Results indicated that U-1 strain, suspected to be a contaminant from calf sera, is a new species of the genus Kobuvirus, now termed bovine kobuvirus.

Isolation of cytopathic small round viruses with BS-C-1 cells from patients with gastroenteritis.

The results suggested that some small round viruses resembling astroviruses might show cytopathic effect in BS-C-1 cells and may be associated with an oyster-related gastroenteritis.

Complete nucleotide and amino acid sequences and genetic organization of porcine kobuvirus, a member of a new species in the genus Kobuvirus, family Picornaviridae

The complete nucleotide and amino acid sequences and genetic organization of porcine kobuvirus were determined and it was found that it belongs to a potential new species—the third—in the genus Kobuvirus.

Calibration of Multiple Poliovirus Molecular Clocks Covering an Extended Evolutionary Range

The rapid evolution of the Kt, Ks, and As clocks can be used to estimate the dates of divergence of closely related viruses, whereas the slower Bs and Ka clocks may be use to explore deeper evolutionary relationships within and across poliovirus genotypes.
