The 2002–3 pandemic caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) was one of the most significant public health events in recent history. An ongoing outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus suggests that this group of viruses remains a key threat and that their distribution is wider than previously recognized. Although bats have been suggested to be the natural reservoirs of both viruses, attempts to isolate the progenitor virus of SARS-CoV from bats have… 
Analysis of Possible Intermediate Hosts of the New Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
The SARS-CoV-2 cluster is situated with the groups of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndromes)/SARS-like coronaviruses, with fruit bat coronavirus HKU9-1 as the immediate outgroup (2).
A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence
TLDR
A potential risk of SARS-CoV re-emergence from viruses currently circulating in bat populations is suggested, and robust viral replication both in vitro and in vivo is demonstrated.
Investigation on the human coronaviruses origin (bats and pangolins): a review
TLDR
It is documented that bats and pangolins origin of human coronaviruses are meaningful to predict and prevent a future outbreak of the deadly pandemic.
Discovery of a novel coronavirus associated with the recent pneumonia outbreak in humans and its potential bat origin
TLDR
The identification and characterization of a novel coronavirus (nCoV-2019) which caused an epidemic of acute respiratory syndrome in humans, in Wuhan, China, and it is confirmed that this novel CoV uses the same cell entry receptor, ACE2, as SARS-CoV.
Genomic characterization and infectivity of a novel SARS-like coronavirus in Chinese bats
TLDR
Using pathogenic tests, it is found that the SARS-CoV virus can reproduce and cause disease in suckling rats, and further studies showed that the virus-like particles can be observed in the brains of sucking rats by electron microscopy.
Bat origin of human coronaviruses
TLDR
Understanding the bat origin of human coronaviruses is helpful for the prediction and prevention of another pandemic emergence in the future.
A pneumonia outbreak associated with a new coronavirus of probable bat origin
TLDR
Identification and characterization of a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), which caused an epidemic of acute respiratory syndrome in humans in Wuhan, China, and it is shown that this virus belongs to the species of SARSr-CoV, indicates that the virus is related to a bat coronav virus.
Identification of Diverse Alphacoronaviruses and Genomic Characterization of a Novel Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Like Coronavirus from Bats in China
TLDR
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.
Novel human coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2): A lesson from animal coronaviruses
A sarbecovirus found in Russian bats uses human ACE2
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Sarbecoviruses circulating in wildlife outside of Asia also exhibit compatibility with human ACE2 and should be taken into consideration for future universal sarbecovirus vaccine candidates.

Bats Are Natural Reservoirs of SARS-Like Coronaviruses
TLDR
It is reported that species of bats are a natural host of coronaviruses closely related to those responsible for the SARS outbreak, and these viruses display greater genetic variation than SARS-CoV isolated from humans or from civets.

TLDR
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.
Close Relative of Human Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus in Bat, South Africa
TLDR
The identification of a South Africa bat derived CoV that has an even closer phylogenetic relationship with MERS-CoV is reported, and is as close as that of SARS- coV and the most closely related bat coronavirus known.
Difference in Receptor Usage between Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) Coronavirus and SARS-Like Coronavirus of Bat Origin
TLDR
This study investigated the receptor usage of the SL-CoV S by combining a human immunodeficiency virus-based pseudovirus system with cell lines expressing the ACE2 molecules of human, civet, or horseshoe bat, and found it to be largely compatible with SARS- coV S protein both in structure and in function.
Coronaviruses in bats from Mexico
TLDR
In a screen of 606 bats from 42 different species in Campeche, Chiapas and Mexico City, analyses of these viruses indicated that host species is a strong selective driver in CoV evolution, even in allopatric populations separated by significant geographical distance; and that a single species/genus of bat can contain multiple CoVs.
Synthetic recombinant bat SARS-like coronavirus is infectious in cultured cells and in mice
TLDR
The design, synthesis, and recovery of the largest synthetic replicating life form, a 29.7-kb bat severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)-like coronavirus (Bat-SCoV), a likely progenitor to the SARS-CoV epidemic is reported.
Evidence of the Recombinant Origin of a Bat Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)-Like Coronavirus and Its Implications on the Direct Ancestor of SARS Coronavirus
TLDR
Evidence of the recombinant origin of the genome of a bat SLCoV is demonstrated and a potential recombination breakpoint is identified immediately after the consensus intergenic sequence between open reading frame 1 and the S coding region, suggesting the replication intermediates may participate in the recombination event, as previously speculated for other CoVs.
Mechanisms of Host Receptor Adaptation by Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus*
TLDR
The molecular and structural mechanisms of each of these naturally selected RBD mutations either strengthen favorable interactions or reduce unfavorable interactions with two virus-binding hot spots on ACE2, and by doing so, they enhance viral interactions with either human (hACE2) or civet (c ACE2) ACE2.
Ecoepidemiology and Complete Genome Comparison of Different Strains of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Related Rhinolophus Bat Coronavirus in China Reveal Bats as a Reservoir for Acute, Self-Limiting Infection That Allows Recombination Events
TLDR
The present data suggest that SARSr-Rh-BatCoV causes acute, self-limiting infection in horseshoe bats, which serve as a reservoir for recombination between strains from different geographical locations within reachable foraging range.
Full-length genome sequences of two SARS-like coronaviruses in horseshoe bats and genetic variation analysis.
TLDR
Genetic analysis demonstrated that a diverse G2b-CoV population exists in the bat habitat and has evolved from a common ancestor of SARS- coV.
