Echovirus 18 (EV18) is one of the echovirus serotypes associated with human diseases and in particular aseptic meningitis. To facilitate studies of the molecular epidemiology of EV18 and the evolution of enteroviruses in general, the complete nucleotide (nt) sequence was determined for the echovirus 18 prototype strain (Metcalf, EV18M). Excluding the poly A sequence, the genome consists of 7410 nt divided into a 740 nt 5' untranslated region (5' UTR), a 6567 nt long open reading frame coding… CONTINUE READING
