Pteropine orthoreovirus (PRV) causes respiratory tract illness (RTI) in humans. PRVs were isolated from throat swabs collected from 9 of 91 wild bats captured on the Mindanao Islands, The Philippines, in 2013. The nucleic acid sequence of the whole genome of each of these isolates was determined. Phylogenetic analysis based on predicted amino acid sequences indicated that the isolated PRVs were novel strains in which re-assortment events had occurred in the viral genome. Serum specimens… Expand
Attenuated infection by a Pteropine orthoreovirus isolated from an Egyptian fruit bat in Zambia
TLDR
These findings provide new epidemiological insights about PRV infection in bats and indicate the first isolation of an PRV strain that may have low pathogenicity to humans, which was isolated from an Egyptian fruit bat in Zambia. Expand
Isolation of Pteropine orthoreovirus from Pteropus vampyrus in Garut, Indonesia
TLDR
This is the first report of PRV infection to P. vampyrus in West Java, Indonesia, and shows both similarity and genetic divergence with other PRV strains, suggesting that re-assortment events had occurred. Expand
Mass spectrometry-based identification and whole-genome characterisation of the first pteropine orthoreovirus isolated from monkey faeces in Thailand
TLDR
The overall findings emphasise that monkey faeces can be sources of zoonotic viruses, including PRV and HEV, and suggest the need for active virus surveillance in areas of human and monkey co-habitation to prevent and control emergingZoonotic diseases in the future. Expand
Virulence, pathology, and pathogenesis of Pteropine orthoreovirus (PRV) in BALB/c mice: Development of an animal infection model for PRV
TLDR
PRV was shown for the first time to be a causative virus of respiratory disease on the basis of Koch’s postulations by the additional demonstration that PRV caused respiratory disease in mice through their intranasal inoculation with PRV. Expand
Pteropine Orthoreovirus in an Angolan Soft-Furred Fruit Bat (Lissonycteris angolensis) in Uganda Dramatically Expands the Global Distribution of an Emerging Bat-Borne Respiratory Virus
TLDR
The discovery of PRV in an African bat dramatically expands the geographic range of this zoonotic virus and warrants further surveillance for PRVs outside of Southeast Asia. Expand
Detection of novel orthoreovirus genomes in shrew (Crocidura hirta) and fruit bat (Rousettus aegyptiacus)
TLDR
This study screened wild animals in Zambia, including shrews, rodents, and bats for the detection of orthoreoviruses, and found that each of the identified orthoreviruses formed a distinct branch among members of the Orthoreovirus genus. Expand
Serological evidence and experimental infection of cynomolgus macaques with pteropine orthoreovirus reveal monkeys as potential hosts for transmission to humans
TLDR
Evidence that PRV exposure in the macaque population in Singapore occurs at a relatively high prevalence is provided and this study suggests that cynomolgus macaques may be an intermediate or reservoir host for PRVs. Expand
Distinct interferon response in bat and other mammalian cell lines infected with Pteropine orthoreovirus
TLDR
Results suggest that RIG-I production is important for antiviral response against PRV in R. ferrumequinum, and suggest that bats appear to possess unique innate immune system responses that can inhibit viral replication, thus reducing clinical symptoms. Expand
Exploring the genome and transcriptome of the cave nectar bat Eonycteris spelaea with PacBio long-read sequencing
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the PacBio long-read sequencing platform alone is sufficient to generate a comprehensive de novo assembled genome and transcriptome of an important bat species, E. spelaea. Expand
Viruses in bats and potential spillover to animals and humans
TLDR
A brief review of the latest findings in bat viruses and their potential risk of cross-species transmission is provided. Expand

Detection and Characterization of a Novel Reassortant Mammalian Orthoreovirus in Bats in Europe
TLDR
The isolation and characterization of a novel reassortant MRV from the lesser horseshoe bat revealed that BatMRV1-IT2011 belonged to serotype 1, which had not previously been identified in bats. Expand
Pulau virus; a new member of the Nelson Bay orthoreovirus species isolated from fruit bats in Malaysia
TLDR
The similarities and differences between PuV and NBV are discussed which support the classification of PuV as a novel mammalian, fusogenic reovirus within the Nelson Bay orthoreovirus species, in the genus Orthoreov virus, family Reoviridae. Expand
Characterization of a novel orthoreovirus isolated from fruit bat, China
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the Cangyuan virus was a novel orthoreovirus and substantially different from currently known members of Pteropine orthorevirus (PRV) species group. Expand
Evolutionary relationship of the L- and M-class genome segments of bat-borne fusogenic orthoreoviruses in Malaysia and Australia.
TLDR
The sequences of the large (L) and medium (M) segments are reported, thus completing the whole-genome characterization of the four PRVs, and conserved functional motifs previously identified in other orthoreovirus gene products were also found in the deduced proteins encoded by the cognate segments of these viruses.

TLDR
The findings indicate the need for surveillance on Pteropine orthoreovirus infections in Southeast Asia to enable prevention and control strategies to be developed should a change in virulence occur. Expand
Investigation of a Potential Zoonotic Transmission of Orthoreovirus Associated with Acute Influenza-Like Illness in an Adult Patient
TLDR
It is demonstrated that spillover events of different strains of related orthoreovirus from bats to humans are occurring on a regular basis, which calls for more intensive and systematic surveillances to fully assess the true public health impact of these newly discovered bat-borne zoonotic reoviruses.

TLDR
These findings highlight the importance of flying foxes as vectors of potentially zoonotic viruses and the biological hazard that lies in the import of animals from geographical areas that are ecologically diverse from Europe. Expand
A previously unknown reovirus of bat origin is associated with an acute respiratory disease in humans
TLDR
The isolation of a previously unknown reovirus from a 39-year-old male patient in Melaka, Malaysia, who was suffering from high fever and acute respiratory disease at the time of virus isolation indicates that bat-borne reoviruses can be transmitted to and cause clinical diseases in humans. Expand
Extensive sequence divergence and phylogenetic relationships between the fusogenic and nonfusogenic orthoreoviruses: a species proposal.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis provided the basis for the first taxonomic subdivision of the orthoreoviruses into species classes based on inferred evolutionary relationships and suggested a highly diverged genus with both conserved and unique sequence-predicted structural motifs in the major sigma-class proteins.
