ABSTRACT Bats may host emerging viruses, including coronaviruses (CoV). We conducted an evaluation of CoV in rhinolophid and vespertilionid bat species common in Europe. Rhinolophids carried severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)-related CoV at high frequencies and concentrations (26% of animals are positive; up to 2.4 × 108 copies per gram of feces), as well as two Alphacoronavirus clades, one novel and one related to the HKU2 clade. All three clades present in Miniopterus bats in China… 

DETECTION OF SPECIFIC ANTIBODIES TO THE NUCLEOCAPSID PROTEIN FRAGMENTS OF SEVERE ACUTE RESPIRATORY SYNDROME-CORONAVIRUS AND SCOTOPHILUS BAT CORONAVIRUS-512 IN THREE INSECTIVOROUS BAT SPECIES

Lactating female bats had higher positive rates of CoV-specific antibodies than non-lactatingFemale and male bats did, crucial for understanding CoV infection history in three insectivorous bat species and important for the control of bat-borne zoonosis diseases.

Detection of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome‐Related Coronavirus and Alphacoronavirus in the Bat Population of Taiwan

Diverse bat CoV with zoonotic potential could be introduced by migratory bats and maintained in the endemic bat population in Taiwan.

Nigeria Syndrome Coronavirus-Like Virus in a Leaf-Nosed Bat in Identification of a Severe Acute Respiratory 2010

A new coronav virus is described, one with a distinctive genomic organization that may provide insights into coronavirus evolution and be a new subgroup within group 2 CoVs.

Identification of Diverse Alphacoronaviruses and Genomic Characterization of a Novel Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Like Coronavirus from Bats in China

Diverse alphacoronaviruses and a close relative (LYRa11) to SARS CoV are identified in bats collected in Yunnan, China, indicating that most reported bat SARS-like CoVs are not the progenitors of human Sars CoV.

Identification of a Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-Like Virus in a Leaf-Nosed Bat in Nigeria

The presence of coronavirus sequences related to those of SARS-CoV in a Commerson's leaf-nosed bat is revealed and genomic sequencing indicated that this virus, unlike subgroup 2b CoVs, is unique, comprising three overlapping open reading frames between the M and N genes and two conserved stem-loop II motifs.

Characterization of a Novel Betacoronavirus Related to Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus in European Hedgehogs

A novel betacoronavirus species in a phylogenetic sister relationship to MERS-CoV and clade c bat CoVs was detected and characterized on the whole-genome level, compatible with viral replication in the lower intestine and fecal-oral transmission.

Molecular identification of Betacoronavirus in bats from Sardinia (Italy): first detection and phylogeny

The identification and molecular characterization of a bat β-Coronavirus is reported, detected during a viral survey carried out on different bat species in the island of Sardinia (Italy), and the need for continued surveillance of bat CoV circulating in Sardinian bats is pointed to.

The identification and molecular characterization of a bat β-Coronavirus is reported, detected during a viral survey carried out on different bat species in the island of Sardinia (Italy), and the need for continued surveillance of bat CoV circulating in Sardinian bats is pointed to.

Detection of Coronaviruses in Bats of Various Species in Italy

This study fills a substantive gap in the knowledge on bat-CoV ecology in Italy, and extends the current knowledge on clade 2c betacoronaviruses with new sequences obtained from bats that have not been previously described as hosts of these viruses.

Novel Alphacoronaviruses and Paramyxoviruses Cocirculate with Type 1 and Severe Acute Respiratory System (SARS)-Related Betacoronaviruses in Synanthropic Bats of Luxembourg

It is shown here that synanthropic bats host viruses that may be able to cross the species barrier after a host adaptation process, and that bats also host Betacoronavirus1 strains.

In a surveillance study for CoV in noncaged animals from the wild areas of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region, a CoV closely related to SARS-CoV is identified from 23 (39%) of 59 anal swabs of wild Chinese horseshoe bats by using RT-PCR and the presence of a 29-bp insertion in ORF 8 of bat-SARS- coV genome suggests that it has a common ancestor with civet SARS -CoV.
