First Identification and Genetic Characterization of a Novel Duck Astrovirus in Ducklings in China
It is determined that the DAstV-5 JM strain is a novel genotype species of avastrovirus, which could be classified as a novelgenotype species in the Avastrov virus genus.
Nearly full-length genome sequence of a novel astrovirus isolated from chickens with ‘white chicks’ condition
The molecular characterization of chicken astrovirus (CAstV), PL/G059/2014, which is involved in the induction of “white chicks” condition, and its nucleotide sequence similarity in different genomic regions could suggest that a recombination event occurred during its evolution and that it has ancestors in common with duck astroviruses.
Isolation and detection of duck astrovirus CPH: implications for epidemiology and pathogenicity
The detection of DAstV/CPH in 36/130 dead-in-shell duck embryo samples collected from different hatcheries located in six provinces suggests that the virus may be horizontally and vertically transmitted and associated with hatchability problems.
Identification and genomic characterization of emerging goose astrovirus in central China, 2020.
The genetic characteristics of three virulent G-I GAstV isolates from commercial goose farms and goose hatchery are analyzed, indicating the diverse transmission of the virus and providing a basis for developing effective preventive measures and control strategies.
Genome analysis of newly emerging goose-origin nephrotic astrovirus in China reveals it belongs to a novel genetically distinct astrovirus.
Identification of a Type-Specific Epitope in the ORF2 Protein of Duck Astrovirus Type 1
Simple Summary Duck astrovirus type 1 (DAstV-1) infection constitutes a cause of viral hepatitis in ducklings and little is known about the B-cell epitope of DAstV-1. In this study, using a
An emerging novel goose astrovirus associated with gosling gout disease, China
The data demonstrated the goose astrovirus could be one of the causative agents of the ongoing gosling gout disease in China, and the gout associated symptom in goslings could be reproduced by GD infection.
Genetic characterization of a novel group of avastroviruses in geese
The data support the view that domestic geese can be infected by astroviruses with different genetic backgrounds, and have raised a concern about the role of domestic ge Goose astrovirus as reservoirs for diverse astrovIRuses.
Genetic characterization of a new astrovirus in goslings suffering from gout
Full-length genomic sequencing and sequence analysis of three goose astrovirus strains revealed that they belong to a new avastrov virus most closely related to viruses classified within species Avastrovirus 3.


Complete sequence of a novel duck astrovirus
A duck astrovirus isolate CPH (DAstV/CPH) detected from newly hatched ducklings was sequenced, and analysis based on a portion of the ORF1b region indicated that DAstV /CPH was more closely related to the common-teal-origin astrov virus MPK514 than to the CAstv/GA2011-like viruses.
Molecular characterization of a duck hepatitis virus 3-like astrovirus.
Complete sequence of a duck astrovirus associated with fatal hepatitis in ducklings.
The complete sequence of a DAstV associated with a recent outbreak of fatal hepatitis in ducklings in China is reported, suggesting that astroviruses may transmit across ducks and turkeys.
Genomic characterization of a novel picornavirus in Pekin ducks.
Circulation and phylogenetic relationship of chicken and turkey-origin astroviruses detected in domestic ducks (Anas platyrhynchos domesticus)
The molecular and phylogenetic analysis of the small open reading frame (ORF) 1b fragment of all chicken and turkey-origin astroviruses detected in ducks showed that ANV-sequence group was more distant from CastV, TAstV-1 and TAstv-2 sequences, which formed a separate, more related group.
Comparison of capsid sequences from human and animal astroviruses.
Higher similarities between the HAstV, FAstV and PAstV capsid sequences suggest interspecies transmissions involving humans, cats and pigs relatively recently in the evolutionary history of astroviruses.
Co-circulation of distinct genetic lineages of astroviruses in turkeys and guinea fowl
It is demonstrated the co-circulation of distinct genetic lineages of astroviruses infecting turkeys and guinea fowl, which provides genetic and epidemiological information contributing to a better understanding of enteric viral infections in turkeys.
Detection and characterization of avian nephritis virus in ducklings
Sequence comparisons of the portion of the open reading frame 1b encoding the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase gene confirmed that the virus detected and sequenced from ducklings shared high nucleotide and amino acid identities with ANV-1.
Molecular Characterization and Typing of Chicken and Turkey Astroviruses Circulating in the United States: Implications for Diagnostics
A revision of the present taxonomic classification for avian astroviruses within the genus Avastrovirus is warranted after no correlation was observed between the detection of a particular astrovirus and the presence of enteric disease or poor performance.
Identification of chicken enterovirus-like viruses, duck hepatitis virus type 2 and duck hepatitis virus type 3 as astroviruses
Characterization involved the use of a hitherto undescribed, degenerate primer-based reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to amplify astrovirus open reading frame (ORF) 1b-specific cDNA fragments followed by nucleotide sequence determination and analysis of the amplified fragments.
