In this study, a novel picornavirus was identified in faecal samples from smooth newts (Lissotriton vulgaris). The complete genome of picornavirus strain newt/II-5-Pilis/2014/HUN (KX463670) is 7755 nt long with type-IV IRES and has 39.6% aa sequence identity in the protein P1 to the corresponding protein of bat picornavirus (KJ641686, unassigned) and 42.7% and 53.5% aa sequence identity in the 2C and 3CD protein, respectively, to oscivirus (GU182410, genus Oscivirus). Interestingly, the L… Expand
Novel picornavirus (family Picornaviridae) from freshwater fishes (Perca fluviatilis, Sander lucioperca, and Ameiurus melas) in Hungary
In this study, a novel picornavirus (perchPV/M9/2015/HUN, GenBank accession no. MW590713) was detected in eight (12.9%) out of 62 faecal samples collected from three (Perca fluviatilis, SanderExpand
A novel passerivirus (family Picornaviridae) in an outbreak of enteritis with high mortality in estrildid finches (Uraeginthus sp.)
The presence of extra-intestinal virus suggests a generalized infection in this fatal disease, for which the passerivirus might be a causative agent. Expand

Genetically highly divergent RNA virus with astrovirus-like (5'-end) and hepevirus-like (3'-end) genome organization in carnivorous birds, European roller (Coracias garrulus).
This novel +ssRNA virus strain Er/SZAL5/HUN/2011 with astrovirus-like genome organization in the non-structural genome regions and Rana hepevirus-related capsid protein represent a potentially recombinant virus species and supports the common origin hypothesis, although, the taxonomic position of the studied virus is still under discussion.

Dissemination of Internal Ribosomal Entry Sites (IRES) Between Viruses by Horizontal Gene Transfer
Accumulating evidence is reviewed that IRESs are genetic entities that can also move between members of different genera and even between families, as well as determinants of viral growth, pathogenesis and cell type specificity. Expand
Functional-genomic analysis reveals intraspecies diversification of antiviral receptor transporter proteins in Xenopus laevis
The evolutionary history of RTPs in vertebrates is explored and signatures of positive selection in many vertebrate RTP clades are identified and multiple, independent expansions of the RTP family outside of what has been described in mammals are characterized. Expand

Identification and complete genome characterization of a novel picornavirus in turkey (Meleagris gallopavo).
The general presence of turkey picornavirus - a novel picORNavirus species - in faecal samples from healthy and affected turkeys in Hungary and in the USA suggests the worldwide occurrence and endemic circulation of this virus in turkey farms. Expand
Sequence analysis of a duck picornavirus isolate indicates that it together with porcine enterovirus type 8 and simian picornavirus type 2 should be assigned to a new picornavirus genus.
Phylogenetic analysis of the polyprotein and 3D sequences indicated that this virus (named duck picornavirus [DPV]) together with porcine enterovirus type 8 virus and several simian picornAViruses form a distinct branch of the family Picornaviridae and should be assigned to a new picornvirus genus.

Virus isolate from carp: genetic characterization reveals a novel picornavirus with two aphthovirus 2A-like sequences.
Both the unique genome organization and low sequence similarity support the assignment of CPV-1 to a novel picornavirus species within a novel genus. Expand
Characterization of a new picornavirus isolated from the freshwater fish Lepomis macrochirus.
Molecular characterization of BGPV revealed several distinct genome characteristics, the most unusual of which is the presence of a short poly(C) tract in the 3' UTR, and it may represent a new genus in the family Picornaviridae. Expand
Isolation and Molecular Characterization of a Novel Picornavirus from Baitfish in the USA
The creation of a new genus (Piscevirus) within the Picornaviridae family is proposed, tentatively named fathead minnow picornavirus (FHMPV), based on complete polyprotein analysis, which showed the FHMPV shared 58% to 100% identity with BGPV and shared less than 40% amino acid identity with all other picORNaviruses.
