Recently, a large number of Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) died of an unknown hemorrhagic syndrome at Kyoto University Primate Research Institute (KUPRI) and an external breeding facility for National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS). We previously reported that the hemorrhagic syndrome of Japanese macaques at KUPRI was caused by infection with simian retrovirus 4 (SRV-4); however, the cause of similar diseases that occurred at the external breeding facility for NIPS was still… Expand

Simian immunodeficiency virus infection and flow cytometric characterization of Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) hematopoietic cells
Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) hematopoietic cells are characterized using flow cytometry and 28 cross‐reactive anti‐human antibody clones are identified, which could facilitate using Japanese macaques as models for human hematological and immunological disorders and infectious diseases.

Simian Retrovirus 4 Induces Lethal Acute Thrombocytopenia in Japanese Macaques
It is concluded that simian retrovirus 4 (SRV-4) was the causative agent of hemorrhagic syndrome in KUPRI Japanese macaques, and its receptor is ASCT2, a neutral amino acid transporter. Expand
Emergence of infectious malignant thrombocytopenia in Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata) by SRV-4 after transmission to a novel host
It is considered that the SRV-4 crossed the so-called species barrier between cynomolgus and Japanese macaques, leading to extremely severe acute symptoms in the latter, highlighting the need to modify expectations about virulence with regards crossing species barriers. Expand
Histologic Lesions in Cynomolgus Monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) Naturally Infected with Simian Retrovirus Type D: Comparison of Seropositive, Virus-Positive, and Uninfected Animals
Lesions were similar to those already reported in other species of macaques, but the absence of severe illness that was consistent with SAIDS in most viremic animals suggests that there may be a different manifestation of disease in the cynomolgus. Expand
Vesicular Stomatitis Virus-Simian Retrovirus Type 2 Vaccine Protects Macaques from Detectable Infection and B-Cell Destruction
This study showed that the VSV-SRV vaccine is a strong approach for preventing clinically relevant type D retrovirus infection and disease in RMs, with protection of 4/4 RMs from SRV infection and prevention of B-cell destruction. Expand
Simian Retrovirus Serogroup 5: Partial gag-prt Sequence and Viral RNA Distribution in an Infected Rhesus Macaque
The first sequence analyses of portions of the D5/RHE/OR gag-prt region are described, obtained as a RT-PCR amplification product from infected rhesus macaque tissue, and the first confirmation using Northern blot analyses that the SRV serogroups express similarly-sized genomic and subgenomic env mRNAs is reported.

Isolation and DNA characterization of a simian retrovirus 5 from a Japanese monkey (Macaca fuscata).
This study isolated SRV5/JPN/2005/V1 from a Japanese monkey and characterized the full-length SRV-5 sequence, finding that it had a sequence identical to the reported 626 bp of SRv-5. Expand
New Simian β Retroviruses from Rhesus Monkeys (Macaca Mulatta) and Langurs (Semnopithecus Entellus) from Rajasthan, India
It is hypothesize that SRV-6 andSRV-7 probably originated from a progenitor exogenous SRV which recombined with an endogenous SERV in the TM env and pol genes during evolution, based on the phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Virus Load and Sequence Variation in Simian Retrovirus Type 2 Infection
Blood samples taken from a small cohort of naturally infected cynomolgus macaques indicated that the variables of SRV-2 infection are complex, differ from those for lentivirus infection, and are not distinctly related to disease outcome. Expand
A novel simian retrovirus subtype discovered in cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis).
A new simian retrovirus (SRV) subtype was discovered in China and the USA from Cambodian-origin cynomolgus monkeys, which showed multifocal lymphoplasmacystic and histocytic inflammation and was phylogenetically and serologically more closely related to SRV-4 than any other SRV subtype. Expand
A new type D retrovirus isolated from macaques with an immunodeficiency syndrome.
A new type D retrovirus was isolated from two Macaca cyclopis with the recently described acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, related to, but distinct from, Mason-Pfizer monkey virus, a type D Retrovirus previously isolated from a mammary tumor of a rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta). Expand
