Liao ning virus (LNV) was first isolated in 1996 from mosquitoes in China, and has been shown to replicate in selected mammalian cell lines and to cause lethal haemorrhagic disease in experimentally infected mice. The first detection of LNV in Australia was by deep sequencing of mosquito homogenates. We subsequently isolated LNV from mosquitoes of four genera (Culex, Anopheles, Mansonia and Aedes) in New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland and Western Australia; the earliest of these… Expand

The present study revealed that LNVs were first appeared in Australia in the South Pacific region and transmitted to mainland China then rapidly spread across China and evolved three different genotypes, suggesting that LNV had the characteristics of long-distance transmission and there were great genetic diversity existed in the LNV population.

Novel monoclonal antibodies against Australian strains of negeviruses and insights into virus structure, replication and host -restriction.
The isolation of Australian strains of Bustos virus and Ngewotan virus, two insect-specific viruses in the newly identified taxon Negevirus, originally isolated from Southeast Asian mosquitoes, confirms the existence of two structural proteins, putatively one membrane protein forming the majority of the virus particle, and one glycoprotein forming a projection on the apex of the virions.

Genetic, Morphological and Antigenic Relationships between Mesonivirus Isolates from Australian Mosquitoes and Evidence for Their Horizontal Transmission
The genetic relationships of recent Australian isolates of Alphamesonivirus 4 (Casuarina virus—CASV) and Alphames onivirus 1 (Nam Dinh virus—NDiV), obtained from multiple mosquito species, are determined. Expand
A survey of RNA viruses in mosquitoes from Mozambique reveals novel genetic lineages of flaviviruses and phenuiviruses, as well as frequent flavivirus-like viral DNA forms in Mansonia
This unique work represents recent investigation of virus screening conducted in mosquitoes from Mozambique and an important contribution to inform the establishment of a vector control program for arbovirus in the country and in the region. Expand
A Unique Relative of Rotifer Birnavirus Isolated from Australian Mosquitoes
The family Birnaviridae are a group of non-enveloped double-stranded RNA viruses which infect poultry, aquatic animals and insects. This family includes agriculturally important pathogens of poultryExpand
Reviewing Seadornaviruses: The Next Dengue?
The current review of Seadornaviruses aims to provide an update on the literature related to them in addition to raising awareness about them and their potential clinical significance in order to highlight future research directions. Expand
A recombinant platform for flavivirus vaccines and diagnostics using chimeras of a new insect-specific virus
A new insect-specific flavivirus, Binjari virus, was found to be remarkably tolerant for exchange of its structural protein genes (prME) with those of the aforementioned pathogenic vertebrate-infecting flaviviruses (VIFs). Expand
Near-Complete Sequence of a Highly Divergent Reovirus Genome Recovered from Callinectes sapidus
The sequence of a reovirus genome, discovered in Callinectes sapidus in Brazil, consists of 12 segments that encode 13 putative proteins and the predicted RNA-dependent RNA polymerase is highly similar to that of Eriocheir sinensis reov virus 905, suggesting that CsRV2 also belongs to the genus Cardoreovirus.

Isolates of Liao Ning Virus from Wild-Caught Mosquitoes in the Xinjiang Province of China in 2005
The data suggest a relatively recent introduction of LNV into Xinjiang province, with substitution rates for LNV Seg-10 and Seg-12, respectively, of 2.29×10−4 and 1.57×10+4 substitutions/nt/year, similar to those estimated for other dsRNA viruses. Expand
Liao ning virus in China
The results indicated that LNV may be an emerging virus at a stage that evaluated rapidly and has been widely distributed in the north part of China. Expand
Liao ning virus, a new Chinese seadornavirus that replicates in transformed and embryonic mammalian cells.
LNV is the first reported seadornavirus that replicates in mammalian cells, leading to massive cytopathic effect in all transformed or embryonic cell lines tested, and was identified as a member of a new species of virus. Expand
Discovery and characterisation of a new insect-specific bunyavirus from Culex mosquitoes captured in northern Australia.
The detection of a functional furin cleavage motif upstream of the two glycoproteins in the M segment-encoded polyprotein suggests that BADUV may employ a unique strategy to process the virions, and phylogenetically clustered most closely with recently discovered mosquito-borne, insect-specific bunyaviruses in the newly proposed Goukovirus genus.

Isolation of Japanese encephalitis virus from mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) collected in the Western Province of Papua New Guinea, 1997-1998.
The PNG isolates belonged to genotype II, and shared > 99.2% identity with isolates from humans and mosquitoes from the Torres Strait, suggesting that PNG is the source of incursions of JE virus into Australia. Expand

The results indicated while new isolates were serologically related to TRT2 strain of coltivirus by IFA, the neutralization test suggests that it represents a distinct serotype. Expand
[The first report of Kadipiro virus isolation in China].
Phylogenetic analysis demonstrated that the isolates appeared to be Kadipiro viruses (Family Reoviridae), which was the first report of kadipiro virus isolation in China. Expand
A novel insect-specific flavivirus replicates only in Aedes-derived cells and persists at high prevalence in wild Aedes vigilax populations in Sydney, Australia.
Investigation of the diversity and prevalence of ISFs in Australian mosquitoes, samples from various regions were screened for flaviviruses by ELISA and RT-PCR and revealed PaRV had persisted in A. vigilax populations in Sydney, with 88% of pools positive. Expand
The Australian Public is Still Vulnerable to Emerging Virulent Strains of West Nile Virus
This study provides little evidence of human exposure to WNVKUN during the 2011 outbreak and indicates that the Australian population remains susceptible to the emergence of virulent strains of WNV. Expand
A New Orbivirus Isolated from Mosquitoes in North-Western Australia Shows Antigenic and Genetic Similarity to Corriparta Virus but Does Not Replicate in Vertebrate Cells
A new virus is detected from mosquito populations of northern Australia that shares genomic sequence similarities to Corriparta virus and did not replicate in several vertebrate cell lines that were permissive to CORV, suggesting that PLV has evolved to have a very restricted host range, indicative of a mosquito-only life cycle.
