Feline paramyxovirus (FPaV) is a member of the family Paramyxoviridae that has been reported only in Germany and the United Kingdom. We detected FPaV for the first time in Japan by transcriptome sequencing of cat urine samples. We determined the genome structure of FPaV and conducted a phylogenetic analysis. It was found that FPaV belongs to the genus Jeilongvirus and forms a clade with Mount Mabu Lophuromys virus 1 (MMLV-1). FPaV lacks a small hydrophobic (SH) gene that is found in members of… Expand
Molecular characterization of Feline paramyxovirus and Feline morbillivirus in cats from Brazil
This study provides the first description of FPaV strains in cats from Brazil and provides new information about the molecular characteristics of F PaV and FeMV strains circulating in domestic cats in Brazil. Expand
Identification of Novel Feline Paramyxoviruses in Guignas (Leopardus guigna) from Chile
This study highlights the diversity of paramyxovirus infections in felids with special emphasis on guignas from Chile and identifies two well-supported clusters, related to isolates from domestic cats, rodents and bats. Expand
Genome Sequence of Ruloma Virus, a Novel Paramyxovirus Clustering Basally to Members of the Genus Jeilongvirus
Ruloma virus has the longest orthoparamyxovirus genome reported to date and forms a sister clade to all currently known members of the genus Jeilongvirus. Expand
Discovery and Genetic Characterization of Novel Paramyxoviruses Related to the Genus Henipavirus in Crocidura Species in the Republic of Korea
The phylogenetic inference demonstrated that GAKV and DARV form independent genetic lineages of Henipavirus in Crocidura species, contributing further understandings of the molecular prevalence, genetic characteristics and diversity, and zoonotic potential of novel paramyxoviruses in shrews. Expand
Extrinsic factors influencing gut microbes, the immediate consequences and restoring eubiosis
This review aims to examine from previous studies and put forward the types of dysbiosis, the immediate consequences and the scientific approaches to restore disrupted microbiota. Expand


Genetic diversity of feline morbilliviruses isolated in Japan.
By using reverse transcription (RT)-PCR, it is found that three of 13 urine samples from cats brought to veterinary hospitals were positive for FmoPV, and sequence analysis of FmPVs showed genetic diversity; however, signatures of positive selection were not identified. Expand
Discovery of new feline paramyxoviruses in domestic cats with chronic kidney disease
Phylogenetic analyses of the detected viruses showed that they represent at least two different species, one of them representing the feline morbilliviruses detected previously in Hong Kong and Japan. Expand
Isolation and characterization of novel bat paramyxovirus B16-40 potentially belonging to the proposed genus Shaanvirus
This study provided basic information on further classification of the bat paramyxovirus B16-40 and related viruses in the proposed genus Shaanvirus. Expand
Complete Genome Sequence of a Novel Paramyxovirus, Tailam Virus, Discovered in Sikkim Rats
A novel paramyxovirus, Tailam virus, of subfamily Paramyxovirinae, is discovered in the kidneys and spleens of Sikkim rats and the coding potential of its genome is similar to those of Beilong virus and J virus. Expand

Histological examination of necropsy tissues in two FmoPV-positive cats revealed interstitial inflammatory infiltrate and tubular degeneration/necrosis in kidneys, with decreased cauxin expression in degenerated tubular epithelial cells, compatible with tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN). Expand
Discovery and genome characterization of three new Jeilongviruses, a lineage of paramyxoviruses characterized by their unique membrane proteins
The phylogenetic clustering of JPV, BeiPV and TlmPV with the viruses described here, as well as their shared features that set them apart from other paramyxoviruses, provide additional support for the recognition of the genus ‘Jeilongvirus’. Expand
Beilong virus, a novel paramyxovirus with the largest genome of non-segmented negative-stranded RNA viruses.
Evidence is provided indicating that BeV was present in a rat mesangial cell line used in the same laboratory prior to the acquisition of the HMC line, suggesting a potential rodent origin for BeV. Expand
A New Genotype of Feline Morbillivirus Infects Primary Cells of the Lung, Kidney, Brain and Peripheral Blood
It is demonstrated that FeMV-GT2 is able to infect renal and pulmonary epithelial cells, primary cells from the cerebrum and cerebellum, as well as immune cells in the blood, especially CD4+ T cells, CD20+ B cells and monocytes. Expand
The Complete Genome Sequence of J Virus Reveals a Unique Genome Structure in the Family Paramyxoviridae
Interestingly, a recently isolated paramyxovirus appears to be closely related to J-V, and preliminary phylogenetic analyses based on putative matrix protein sequences indicate that these two viruses will likely represent a new genus within the subfamily Paramyxovirinae. Expand
Genetic analysis of J-virus and Beilong virus using minireplicons.
It is demonstrated that, whilst the genome replication machineries of JPV and BeiPV can be interchanged, they were not functional when exchanged with that of Nipah virus. Expand
