DNA samples from a variety of New World monkeys were screened by using a broad-spectrum PCR targeting the VP1 gene of polyomaviruses. This resulted in the characterization of the first polyomavirus from a New World primate. This virus naturally infects squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sp.) and is provisionally named squirrel monkey polyomavirus (SquiPyV). The complete genome of SquiPyV is 5,075 bp in length, and encodes the small T and large T antigens and the three structural proteins VP1, VP2 and…

Detection and characterization of a novel polyomavirus in wild rodents.
TLDR
Comparison of large T antigen function in mastomys polyomvirus with that in rhesus monkey polyomavirus SV40 and human polyomAVirus JC virus revealed that the large T antibody interacted with the tumour suppressor protein pRb, but not with p53.

Identification of MW Polyomavirus, a Novel Polyomavirus in Human Stool
TLDR
A novel polyomavirus present in multiple human stool samples and predicted to encode the large T antigen and small T antigen early proteins and the VP1, VP2, and VP3 structural proteins is discovered.

Novel polyomaviruses in South American bats and their relationship to other members of the family Polyomaviridae.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis was performed on the genomes of eight representative PyVs, and showed that the bat PyVs form three distinct lineages within the genus Orthopolyomavirus and are genetically different from the previously described North American bat virus.
Characterization of novel polyomaviruses from Bornean and Sumatran orang-utans.
TLDR
Analysis of archival DNA samples from 71 Bornean and eight Sumatran orang-utans with a broad-spectrum PCR assay resulted in the detection of PyV infections in 11 animals from both species, and revealed a characteristic PyV architecture, but lacked an obvious agnogene.

Novel human polyomaviruses-Re-emergence of a well known virus family as possible human carcinogens: Human Polyomaviruses as Human Carcinogens
TLDR
The results of recent polyomavirus isolations from humans and animals are summarized and the potential role of members of this virus family in other human malignancies are addressed, particularly in hair-follicle cell-related proliferations.
From Stockholm to Malawi: recent developments in studying human polyomaviruses.
TLDR
This review summarizes the recent developments in studying the novel human polyomaviruses, and touches upon several aspects of polyomvirus virology, pathogenicity, epidemiology and phylogeny.
Detection and characterization of two chimpanzee polyomavirus genotypes from different subspecies
TLDR
Analysis of the TCR from different chimpanzee subspecies, and from a series of tissues from five individuals confirmed its genetic stability, and indicates that double-infections with different genotypes can occur.

Novel Polyomavirus Detected in the Feces of a Chimpanzee by Nested Broad-Spectrum PCR
TLDR
The screening of field samples revealed the presence of a new polyomvirus, tentatively designated chimpanzee polyomavirus (ChPyV), in the feces of a juvenile chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), and analysis of the region encoding the major capsid protein VP1 revealed a unique insertion in the EF loop of the protein.
Complete Nucleotide Sequence of Polyomavirus SA12
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of simian agent 12 (SA12), whose natural host is thought to be Papio ursinus, the chacma baboon, is reported and it is shown that, like its close relative simian virus 40 (SV40), SA12 expresses microRNAs that are encoded by the late DNA strand overlapping the 3′ end of large T antigen coding sequences.
Identification of a Third Human Polyomavirus
TLDR
The identification of a previously unknown polyomvirus provisionally named KI polyomavirus, which is phylogenetically related to other primatepolyomaviruses in the early region of the genome but has very little homology to known polyomVirus in the late region, illustrates how unbiased screening of respiratory tract samples can be used for the discovery of diverse virus types.
Identification of a Novel Polyomavirus from Patients with Acute Respiratory Tract Infections
TLDR
The presence of multiple instances of the virus in two continents suggests that this virus is geographically widespread in the human population and raises the possibility that the WU virus may be a human pathogen.
The complete nucleotide sequence of bovine polyomavirus.
TLDR
It is concluded that this may be the first example of a polyomavirus that has a small t antigen which is translated from two exon sequences, and the highest degree of homology to SV40 and PyV is present in the VP1 molecule.
A new monkey lymphotropic papovavirus: characterization of the virus and evidence of a related virus in humans.
TLDR
Preliminary seroepidemiologic studies have not revealed any association of LPV to human disease, but further, more detailed investigations are necessary to assess its importance in humans.
Characterization of SA12 as a simian virus 40-related papovavirus of chacma baboons.
SA12 virus, originally isolated from an uninoculated South African vervet monkey kidney culture, was identified as a new member of the simian virus 40 (SV40)-polyoma subgroup of papovaviruses. The
Biological and biochemical studies of African green monkey lymphotropic papovavirus
TLDR
Serological surveys of human and nonhuman primate sera indicated that virtually all primates, including humans, show evidence of infection by viruses antigenically related to LPV, and stocks of nondefective LPV were investigated.
Squirrel Monkeys Support Replication of BK Virus More Efficiently than Simian Virus 40: an Animal Model for Human BK Virus Infection
TLDR
It is found that squirrel monkeys were susceptible to infection with BKV, with high viral copy number detected in blood and viral genome detected in all tissues examined, and SV40 was detected at very low copy numbers in only a few tissues and was not detected inBlood.
