Background Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus distributed throughout much of Africa and Asia. Infection with the virus may cause acute febrile illness that clinically resembles dengue fever. A recent study indicated the existence of three geographically distinct viral lineages; however this analysis utilized only a single viral gene. Although ZIKV has been known to circulate in both Africa and Asia since at least the 1950s, little is known about the genetic relationships between… Expand

Diversity of and Implications from the Viral Genomes and Viral Proteins of Zika Virus
TLDR
The diversity of amino acid sequences between the French Polynesia (FP) strain and the Brazil strain were found to be more closely related to each other than to other strains being studied, consistent with the hypothesis of Brazil ZIKV being evolved from FP-type ancestors. Expand
Molecular Evolution of Zika Virus during Its Emergence in the 20th Century
TLDR
Evidence is presented that ZIKV has possibly undergone recombination in nature and that a loss of the N154 glycosylation site in the envelope protein was a possible adaptive response to the Aedes dalzieli vector. Expand
Molecular evolution of Zika virus during its emergence in the 20th century
Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus first isolated in Uganda in 1947. Although entomological and virologic surveillance have reported ZIKV enzootic activity in diverse countries ofExpand
Zika virus infection and its emerging trends in Southeast Asia.
TLDR
A combination of factors explains the current Zika virus outbreak although it is highly likely that the changes in the climate and high frequency of travelling contribute to the spread of Aedes vector carrying the Zika virus mainly to the tropical climate countries such as the Southeast Asia. Expand
A report on the outbreak of Zika virus on Easter Island, South Pacific, 2014
TLDR
The detection and molecular characterization of Zika virus for the first time in Chile from an outbreak among the inhabitants of Easter Island suggest that the transmission pathway leading to the introduction of Zikairus on Easter Island has its origin in French Polynesia. Expand
Zika Virus Exhibits Lineage-Specific Phenotypes in Cell Culture, in Aedes aegypti Mosquitoes, and in an Embryo Model
TLDR
Results suggest that genetic variation between ZIKV isolates can significantly alter experimental outcomes. Expand
Differential virulence between Asian and African lineages of Zika virus
TLDR
Some inconsistencies between this rather strong virulence and the long-term developmental effects associated with ZIKV infections led researchers to question the biological validity of this strain, which has been primarily transmitted by the mosquito species Aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Expand
Phylogeny of Zika Virus in Western Hemisphere, 2015
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the Zika virus was derived directly from 3 of these serum specimens by using next-generation sequencing on the Ion Torrent platform and the raw sequence reads were analyzed and assembled by using the CLC bio Genomics Workbench. Expand
Zika virus infection: Past and present of another emerging vector-borne disease.
TLDR
This review summarizes the existing information on Zika virus characteristics, pathogenesis and epidemiology, the available methods for the diagnosis of Zika virus infection and recent approaches for prevention and control. Expand
Zika Virus: a re-emerging pathogen with rapidly evolving public health implications.
TLDR
The explanation of this huge temporal gap occurred between the first human cases and ZIKV recognizable outbreaks are likely consequent to several factors. Expand

Zika Virus Infection, Cambodia, 2010
TLDR
This result was the first nondengue, non–Japanese encephalitis virus flavivirus detected after samples from ≈10,000 enrolled patients were tested and demonstrated that the patient had a clear monotypic flaviv virus immune response with seroconversion against ZIKV, indicating a recent primary infection. Expand
Zika virus outbreak on Yap Island, Federated States of Micronesia.
TLDR
This outbreak of Zika virus illness in Micronesia represents transmission of Zikairus outside Africa and Asia and clinicians and public health officials should be aware of the risk of further expansion of Zika viruses transmission. Expand
Zika virus, a cause of fever in Central Java, Indonesia.
In 1977 and 1978 selected in-patients at the Tegalyoso Hospital, Klaten, Indonesia who had recent onsets of acute fever were serologically studied for evidence for alphavirus and flavivirusExpand
[Surveillance of the circulation of arbovirus of medical interest in the region of eastern Senegal].
TLDR
The comparison of the serological IgM results from human surveys in different villages, and the isolations of arboviruses from mosquitoes during the same period of time permitted a rapid and global evaluation of the circulation of these viruses. Expand
Genomics and evolution of Aedes-borne flaviviruses.
TLDR
Viral evolution was found to be associated with the appearance of new biological characteristics; mutations that may modify the envelope protein structure were identified for seven viruses within the YFV group, and an expansion of host-vector range was identified in the two major evolutionary lineages, which in turn may facilitate the emergence of mosquito-borne flaviviruses.

Silent circulation of arboviruses in Cameroon.
TLDR
The results indicate previously undetected circulation of arboviruses in Cameroon, and suggest that they are important, overlooked public health problems. Expand
Full-length sequencing and genomic characterization of Bagaza, Kedougou, and Zika viruses
TLDR
A complete genome sequence of each of the three African viruses was obtained and the open reading frames were characterized, indicating that Kedougou virus was close to dengue viruses but nonetheless distinct, while Bagaza virus shared genetic relatedness with West Nile virus in several genomic regions. Expand
Isolation of Zika virus from Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in Malaysia.
TLDR
A strain of Zika virus was isolated from one of 58 pools of 1,277 Aedes aegypti mosquitoes collected in cities and towns of peninsular Malaya by the use of antiserum from monkeys and the plaque-reduction neutralization test in Vero cell cultures. Expand

TLDR
Data of monkey serology are presented which support the view that yellow fever (YF) virus circulates in its primary sylvan host populations, i.e., forest monkeys, in an enzootic state in Bwamba County in western Uganda but as series of epizootics in the forest-savanna mosaic zone of central Uganda.
