The species Corriparta virus (CORV), within the genus Orbivirus, family Reoviridae, currently contains six virus strains: corriparta virus MRM1 (CORV-MRM1); CS0109; V654; V370; Acado virus and Jacareacanga virus. However, lack of neutralization assays, or reference genome sequence data has prevented further analysis of their intra-serogroup/species relationships and identification of individual serotypes. We report whole-genome sequence data for CORV-MRM1, which was isolated in 1960 in… Expand
Genetic Characterization of the Tick-Borne Orbiviruses
The TBO genome segment encoding cell attachment, outer capsid protein 1 (OC1), is approximately half the size of the equivalent segment from insect-borne orbiviruses, helping to explain why tick-borne orbs have a ~1 kb smaller genome. Expand
Full Genome Characterization of the Culicoides-Borne Marsupial Orbiviruses: Wallal Virus, Mudjinbarry Virus and Warrego Viruses
Comparisons of conserved polymerase, sub-core-shell ’T2’ and core-surface ‘T13’ proteins show that these viruses group with other Culicoides borne orbiviruses, clustering with Eubenangee virus (EUBV), another orbivirus infecting marsupials. Expand
Development and Evaluation of Real Time RT-PCR Assays for Detection and Typing of Bluetongue Virus
Development and evaluation of multiple ‘TaqMan’ fluorescence-probe based quantitative real-time type-specific RT-PCR assays targeting Seg-2 of the 27+1 BTV types, which determine the identity of the twenty seven serotypes and two additional putative BTV serotypes that have been recognised so far.

First Identification of Orungo Virus (Orbivirus) from a Febrile Patient in South-Eastern Senegal, 2015
A novel Orungo virus strain isolated from in a febrile patient living in Southeastern Senegal is able to infect mammalian Vero cells and is lethal for mice when inoculated intra-cerebrally and the developed reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction assay can be used for rapid and specific detection of Orunga virus.

A New Orbivirus Isolated from Mosquitoes in North-Western Australia Shows Antigenic and Genetic Similarity to Corriparta Virus but Does Not Replicate in Vertebrate Cells
A new virus is detected from mosquito populations of northern Australia that shares genomic sequence similarities to Corriparta virus and did not replicate in several vertebrate cell lines that were permissive to CORV, suggesting that PLV has evolved to have a very restricted host range, indicative of a mosquito-only life cycle.

Double-Stranded RNA Viruses
Among the zoonotic viruses with a double-stranded RNA genome, six tick-borne viruses of the genus Orbivirus (family Reoviridae) are found in Northern Eurasia, and data is presented on infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (family Birnaviridae, genus Aquabirnavirus), which infects fish and has a worldwide distribution.

Umatilla Virus Genome Sequencing and Phylogenetic Analysis: Identification of Stretch Lagoon Orbivirus as a New Member of the Umatilla virus Species
Full-length, whole-genome sequence data for Umatilla virus (UMAV), a mosquito borne avian orbivirus from the USA, which belongs to the species Umatillas virus is reported, showing that UMAV groups with the mosquito transmitted mammalian orbiviruses. Expand
Full Genome Sequencing and Genetic Characterization of Eubenangee Viruses Identify Pata Virus as a Distinct Species within the Genus Orbivirus
Full genome sequencing confirmed that EUBV and TILV show high levels of aa sequence identity in the conserved polymerase VP1(Pol), sub-core VP3(T2) and outer core VP7(T13) proteins, and are appropriately classified within the same virus species, and Pata virus is recognised as a new Orbivirus species.

Complete sequence of Great Island virus and comparison with the T2 and outer-capsid proteins of Kemerovo, Lipovnik and Tribec viruses (genus Orbivirus, family Reoviridae).
Phylogenetic analyses of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (Pol) and T2 protein amino acid sequences indicated that the tick-borne orbiviruses represent an ancestral group from which the mosquito-borne Orbivirus species have evolved, supporting a co-speciation hypothesis for these arboviruses and their arthropod-vectors. Expand
A novel mosquito-borne Orbivirus species found in South-east Asia.
Comparative genetic analysis of the SVIV polymerase, core protein, and outer core protein confirmed that SVIV is most closely related to the mosquito-borne orbiviruses, but that it is equally divergent from all known species. Expand
Complete Genome Characterisation of a Novel 26th Bluetongue Virus Serotype from Kuwait
The authors' analyses indicate that all of the BTV genome segments have evolved under strong purifying selection, and that KUW2010/02 and BTV-25/SWI2008/01 are representatives of two novel and distinct geographic groups (topotypes). Expand
Evolution and Phylogenetic Analysis of Full-Length VP3 Genes of Eastern Mediterranean Bluetongue Virus Isolates
E Epidemiological and phylogenetic analyses indicate thatBluetongue virus originated from a geographic area to the east and southeast of Greece, which appears to represent an important ecological niche for the virus that is likely to represent a continuing source of future BTV incursions into Europe.

Detection of a Fourth Orbivirus Non-Structural Protein
Bioinformatic analyses indicate that NS4 contains coiled-coils, is related to proteins that bind nucleic acids, or are associated with membranes and shows similarities to nucleolar protein UTP20 (a processome subunit). Expand
Yunnan orbivirus, a new orbivirus species isolated from Culex tritaeniorhynchus mosquitoes in China.
The replication of YUOV in mosquito cell lines was restricted to Aedes albopictus cells and the virus failed to replicate in mammalian cell lines, however, intraperitoneal injection of virus into naïve mice resulted in productive, non-lethal virus replication and viraemia. Expand
Genetic relatedness of corriparta serogroup viruses.
The phylogenetic relationship of Corriparta serogroup members suggested by the blot hybridization data is not apparent in the current taxonomic classification of these viruses which is based primarily upon serological data. Expand
Analysis and phylogenetic comparisons of full-length VP2 genes of the 24 bluetongue virus serotypes.
The data presented form an initial basis for B TV serotype identification by sequence analyses and comparison of Seg-2, and for development of molecular diagnostic assays for individual BTV serotypes (by RT-PCR). Expand
