Members of the family Picornaviridae are important pathogens of humans and animals, although compared with the thousands of known bird species (>10 000), only a few (n = 11) picornaviruses have been identified from avian sources. This study reports the metagenomic detection and complete genome characterization of a novel turkey picornavirus from faecal samples collected from eight turkey farms in Hungary. Using RT-PCR, both healthy (two of three) and affected (seven of eight) commercial turkeys… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Genetic characterization of a novel picornavirus in turkeys (Meleagris gallopavo) distinct from turkey galliviruses and megriviruses and distantly related to the members of the genus Avihepatovirus.

The phylogenetic analyses, low sequence identity to DHAV, and the type II-like internal ribosome entry site suggests that this turkey picornavirus is related to, but distinct from the genus Avihepatovirus and it could be the founding member of a novel Avi hepatov virus sister-clade genus.

Novel picornavirus in domestic rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus var. domestica)

Genetic characterization of a second novel picornavirus from an amphibian host, smooth newt (Lissotriton vulgaris)

The L-protein of newt/II-5-Pilis/2014/HUN has conserved aa motifs that are similar to those found in phosphatase-1 catalytic (PP1C) subunit binding region (pfam10488) proteins, which could represent a novel species and could be a founding member of a potential novel picornavirus genus.

Molecular Characterization of Enteric Picornaviruses in Archived Turkey and Chicken Samples from the United States

This report describes the recent phylogenetic analysis of turkey and chicken enteric samples archived at the Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory from 2004 to present and is a first step in placing these novel avian picornaviruses within the larger Picornviridae family.

Comparative Complete Genome Analysis of Chicken and Turkey Megriviruses (Family Picornaviridae): Long 3′ Untranslated Regions with a Potential Second Open Reading Frame and Evidence for Possible Recombination

The genetic analysis of three complete genomes of megriviruses from fecal samples of chickens and turkey suggests the classification of chicken megrivirus-like viruses into a candidate novel species in the genus Megrivirus.

Genetic characterization of a novel picornavirus distantly related to the marine mammal-infecting aquamaviruses in a long-distance migrant bird species, European roller (Coracias garrulus).

The presence of a novel picornavirus identified from one of 18 analysed faecal samples of an Afro-Palearctic migrant bird, the European roller, is reported, which is distantly related to the marine-mammal-infecting seal aquamavirus A1 (genus Aquamav virus).

Identification and Genome Characterization of the First Sicinivirus Isolate from Chickens in Mainland China by Using Viral Metagenomics

This is the first report on identification of Sicinivirus in commercial layer chickens with a severe clinical disease in mainland China, however, further studies are needed to evaluate the pathogenic potential of this picornavirus in chickens.

Molecular and Phylogenetic Analysis of a Novel Turkey-Origin Picobirnavirus

A phylogenetic analysis suggests the turkey PBV is unique because it does not group closely with the recognized PBV genogroups circulating in mammalian hosts.



Novel Picornavirus in Turkey Poults with Hepatitis, California, USA

Molecular, anatomic, and immunologic evidence suggests that TVH is caused by a novel picornavirus, tentatively named turkey hepatitis virus.

Natural interspecies recombinant bovine/porcine enterovirus in sheep.

The interspecies-recombinant nature of OEV-1 suggests a closer relationship among bovine and porcine enteroviruses, enabling the exchange of at least some modular genetic elements that may evolve independently.

Molecular analysis of duck hepatitis virus type 1 reveals a novel lineage close to the genus Parechovirus in the family Picornaviridae.

Analysis of the genomic and predicted polyprotein sequences revealed several unusual features, including the absence of a predicted maturation cleavage of VP0, the presence of two unrelated 2A protein motifs and a 3' UTR extended markedly compared with that of any other picornavirus.

Avian encephalomyelitis virus is a picornavirus and is most closely related to hepatitis A virus.

The complete RNA genome of avian encephalomyelitis virus (AEV) has been molecularly cloned and sequenced. This revealed AEV to be a member of the Picornaviridae and consequently it is the first avian

Screening of Feral and Wood Pigeons for Viruses Harbouring a Conserved Mobile Viral Element: Characterization of Novel Astroviruses and Picornaviruses

A highly conserved RNA-motif of yet unknown function, called stem-loop-2-like motif (s2m), has been identified in the 3′ end of the genomes of viruses belonging to different RNA virus families which

Comparative analysis of six genome sequences of three novel picornaviruses, turdiviruses 1, 2 and 3, in dead wild birds, and proposal of two novel genera, Orthoturdivirus and Paraturdivirus, in the family Picornaviridae.

Three novel picornaviruses, turdiviruses 1, 2 and 3 (TV1, TV2 and TV3), were identified from birds of different genera in the family Turdidae, and two novel genera are proposed, Orthoturdivirus for TV1, and Paraturdivirus forTV2 andTV3, in thefamily Picornavirus.

Metagenomic Analyses of Viruses in Stool Samples from Children with Acute Flaccid Paralysis

Viral nucleic acids in stool samples collected from 35 South Asian children with nonpolio acute flaccid paralysis contained members of a novel Picornaviridae genus and four new viral species, including a potentially novel Enterovirus genotype.

Metagenomic analysis of the turkey gut RNA virus community

This work utilized the Roche/454 Life Sciences GS-FLX platform to compile an RNA virus metagenome from turkey flocks experiencing enteric disease, and yielded numerous sequences homologous to viruses in the BLAST nr protein database, many of which have not been described in turkeys.

The 2A proteins of three diverse picornaviruses are related to each other and to the H-rev107 family of proteins involved in the control of cell proliferation.

It is shown here that the 2A protein of several diverse picornavirus, the human parechoviruses, Aichi virus and avian encephalomyelitis virus, possess previously unrecognized conserved motifs and are likely to have a common function, characteristic of a family of cellular proteins, at least two of which are involved in the control of cell growth.
