Genome diversity is a hallmark of hepatitis B virus (HBV), which allowed its classification into 10 genotypes (A–J) and numerous subgenotypes. Among them, Genotype D is currently segregated into eight subgenotypes (D1–D8). Here, we report the identification and characterization of a novel subgenotype within genotype D of HBV from chronic hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)‐negative patients of Eastern India. Phylogenetic tree analysis based on complete genome sequences revealed that six of 39 HBV/D… 
Identification of Novel D11 Hepatitis B Surface Antigen Subgenotype in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
TLDR
The identification of HBV/D11 novel subgenotypes in the present study suggested that further studies with a large number of subjects in previously examined and unexamined areas may lead to discovering new HBV strain genotypes and/or subgenotype circulating in Saudi Arabia.
A novel hepatitis B virus subgenotype D10 circulating in Ethiopia
TLDR
A novel HBV subgenotype D10 circulating in Ethiopia is identified, underlining the high genetic variability of HBV strains in Africa.
A Rare HBV Subgenotype D4 with Unique Genomic Signatures Identified in North-Eastern India –An Emerging Clinical Challenge?
TLDR
IndD4 has potential to undermine vaccination programs or anti-viral therapy and its introduction to North-East India is believed to be linked with the settlement of ancient Tibeto-Burman migrants from East-Asia.
A Novel Complex A/C/G Intergenotypic Recombinant of Hepatitis B Virus Isolated in Southern China
TLDR
The analysis of viral replication capacity showed that the Guilin recombinant strains had a competent replication capacity similar to genotypes B and C strains, which can aid in the clarification of the phylogenetic origin of the HBV recombinants with the genotype G fragment found in Asian countries, but also the understanding of the virological properties of these complicated HBVs.
Oncogenic potential of hepatitis B virus subgenotype D1 surpasses D3: significance in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of determination of subgenotypes of HBV in CHB patients, so that high-risk individual can be monitor periodically that may help to detect HCC at early stages.
Novel subgenotype D11 of hepatitis B virus in NaPo County, Guangxi, bordering Vietnam.
TLDR
The authors' data provide evidence for a novel subgenotype of HBV, provisionally designated HBV subgenotypes D1-D10, which is found to form a cluster in 23 genotype D isolates, branching out from other subgenotyp D sequences and supported by a 100 % bootstrap value.
Distinctiveness in virological features and pathogenic potentials of subgenotypes D1, D2, D3 and D5 of Hepatitis B virus
TLDR
D2/D3 were more associated with hepatic apoptosis/inflammation/fibrosis and D1/D5 with increased risk of hepatocarcinogenesis and emphasize the need for determining HBV-subgenotype in clinical practice.
Complete genome sequence of a hepatitis B virus isolate of genotype D2, subtype adrq+, from Brazil
TLDR
This isolate had a genome length of 3,062 nucleotides (nt), and no recombination events were observed in the BR32 genome that could explain the occurrence of the subtype adr in a genotype D isolate.
Novel quasi-subgenotype D2 of hepatitis B virus identified in Taiwanese aborigines
TLDR
Interestingly, six strains of genotype D formed a distinct cluster between subgenotypes D1 and D2 suggesting a novel group of HBV, provisionally proposed to designate it as novel quasi-subgenotype D2 identified in Taiwanese aborigines.

A novel hepatitis B virus (HBV) subgenotype D (D8) strain, resulting from recombination between genotypes D and E, is circulating in Niger along with HBV/E strains.
TLDR
Data suggest that, in Niger, genetic variability of HBV strains is still evolving, probably reflecting ancient endemic HBV infection.
Genetic Diversity of Hepatitis B Virus Strains Derived Worldwide: Genotypes, Subgenotypes, and HBsAg Subtypes
TLDR
The genetic diversity ofHBV and the geographical distribution of its subgenotypes provide a tool to reconstruct the evolutionary history of HBV and may help to complement genetic data in the understanding of the evolution and past migrations of man.
Relationship of serological subtype, basic core promoter and precore mutations to genotypes/subgenotypes of hepatitis B virus
TLDR
Using phylogenetic analysis and pairwise comparison of 670 complete hepatitis B virus genomes, it is demonstrated that nucleotide divergence greater than 7.5% can be used to separate strains into genotypes A–H andSerological subtype deduced from the S region and mutations/variations within the basic core promoter/precore region allowed genotyping of HBV with 97% sensitivity and 99% specificity.
A Genetic Variant of Hepatitis B Virus Divergent from Known Human and Ape Genotypes Isolated from a Japanese Patient and Provisionally Assigned to New Genotype J
TLDR
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) of a novel genotype (J) was recovered from an 88-year-old Japanese patient with hepatocellular carcinoma who had a history of residing in Borneo during the World War II and may help to trace the origin of HBV and merits further epidemiological surveys.
Classification of hepatitis B virus genotype B into 2 major types based on characterization of a novel subgenotype in Arctic indigenous populations.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of complete sequences show that the Arctic strains belong to a novel subgenotype (HBV/B6) without the recombination, analogous to what is seen with Bj/B1.
Identification and characterization of genotype A and D recombinant hepatitis B virus from Indian chronic HBV isolates.
TLDR
The authors identified and characterized recombinant A and D genotype HBV in hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-positive patients and confirmed the presence of recombination.
Basal core promoter, precore region mutations of HBV and their association with e antigen, genotype, and severity of liver disease in patients with chronic hepatitis B in India
TLDR
It is concluded that Pc G1862T mutant is Genotype A‐specific but is not always associated with e antigen, and the TA 1–3 rich mutations of BCP region are also associated with the absence of e antigen in Indian patients.
Comparison of genotypes C and D of the hepatitis B virus in Japan: A clinical and molecular biological study
TLDR
Genotype C was associated with chronic liver disease, whereas genotype D was related to asymptomatic carriers with earlier HBeAg seroconversion, thus, the outcome of chronic HBV infection may be different in persons infected with HBV genotypes C and D.
New Complex Recombinant Genotype of Hepatitis B Virus Identified in Vietnam
TLDR
Findings support the designation of the new genotype I of hepatitis B virus, HBV-VH24, which had a novel intergenotypic recombination between genotypes A, C, and G.
Nucleic Acid Sequence Analysis of Basal Core Promoter/Precore/Core Region of Hepatitis B Virus Isolated from Chronic Carriers of the Virus from Kolkata, Eastern India: Low Frequency of Mutation in the Precore Region
TLDR
The pattern of core promoter and precore mutation of HBV isolates in the present study is atypical and not in accordance with reports from other parts of the world, where genotype D and genotype C with T at codon 1858 are common.
