The circular, single-stranded DNA genome of a novel circovirus of canaries, tentatively named canary circovirus (CaCV), was cloned and sequenced. Sequence analysis indicated that the genome was 1952 nucleotides (nt) in size and had the potential to encode three viral proteins, including the putative capsid and replication-associated (Rep) proteins. The CaCV genome shared greatest sequence similarity (58.3% nt identity) with the newly characterized columbid circovirus (CoCV) and was more…

Identification of a novel circovirus in Australian ravens (Corvus coronoides) with feather disease
Sequence analysis indicated that the tentatively named raven circovirus (RaCV) was 1898 nucleotides in size with two major open reading frames synonymous with other avian circoviruses, likely to encode a putative capsid protein (Cap) and replicase-associated protein (Rep), respectively.
Molecular characterization of novel circoviruses from finch and gull
Nucleotide sequence determination and analysis of cloned genomic DNAs showed that these circoviruses represented novel members of the genus Circovirus of the family Circoviridae, and have been tentatively named Finch circovirus (FiCV) and Gull Circov virus (GuCV).
Genome of a novel circovirus of starlings, amplified by multiply primed rolling-circle amplification.
A novel circov virus (starling circovirus, StCV) was detected in spleen samples of wild starlings found dead during an epidemic outbreak of septicaemic salmonellosis in northeastern Spain using PCR with degenerate primers, revealing the highest degree of similarity between StCV and canarycircovirus.
Molecular characterization of a recently identified circovirus in zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) associated with immunosuppression and opportunistic infections
Analyses including partial sequences of the replication-associated protein gene of the zebra finch circovirus strains from all 14 birds supported the existence of two main clusters, and high genetic diversity was detected in the circoviruses from individualZebra finches.

Two Amino Acid Mutations in the Capsid Protein of Type 2 Porcine Circovirus (PCV2) Enhanced PCV2 Replication In Vitro and Attenuated the Virus In Vivo
The results from this study indicated that the P110A and R191S mutations in the capsid of PCV2 enhanced the growth ability ofPCV2 in vitro and attenuated the virus in vivo.


Genome sequence determinations and analyses of novel circoviruses from goose and pigeon.
The genomes of novel circoviruses from goose and pigeon, which were isolated using degenerate primer and inverse primer PCR methods, were cloned and sequenced. Comparative nucleotide (nt) sequence
Nucleotide sequence-based identification of a novel circovirus of canaries
Sequence analysis of a 510 nucleotide genomic fragment indicated that canary circovirus (CCV) represents a new avian virus of the genus Circovirus of the family Circoviridae, and is more closely related to CoCV than BFDV.
Sequence of porcine circovirus DNA: affinities with plant circoviruses.
Findings show that PCV is unique in that it bridges the gap between animal and plant circovirus, and that rolling-circle replication may operate during PCV DNA replication.
Psittacine beak and feather disease virus nucleotide sequence analysis and its relationship to porcine circovirus, plant circoviruses, and chicken anaemia virus.
These findings provide further evidence of a close relationship among BFDV, PCV, and plant circoviruses but not chicken anaemia virus.
Cloning and sequencing of columbid circovirus (CoCV), a new circovirus from pigeons
Phylogenetic analyses suggest classification of CoCV as member of the genus Circovirus of the virus family Circoviridae as member with 55% homology to the genome of psittacine beak and feather disease virus and more distantly related to porcine circovirus type 2.
Beak and feather disease virus and porcine circovirus genomes: intermediates between the geminiviruses and plant circoviruses
SummaryCircoviruses are a diverse group of animal and plant pathogens with undefined relationships to one another but for their non-geminate, non-enveloped capsids and circular, single-stranded DNA
Characterization of novel circovirus DNAs associated with wasting syndromes in pigs.
Cl cloning and characterization of novel circovirus DNAs purified from virus isolates made from tissues of North American and European pigs with wasting syndromes are reported, providing evidence for a new type of possibly pathogenic PCV.

It is suggested that circovirus infections of avian species may be more common than previously recognized, and prompt the question of whether novel circoviruses infect poultry to cause clinical and/or subclinical diseases that may be economically important.
Mapping and characterization of the origin of DNA replication of porcine circovirus
The origin of DNA replication of porcine circovirus (PCV) was mapped to a 111-bp fragment. On top of a hairpin, a nonanucleotide (TAGTATTAC) homologous to nonanucleotides of other viruses was

While seven ORFs with the potential to encode proteins greater than 8.7 kDa were detected in the BFDV-AUS isolate described previously, only three of these ORFs were detecting in all 10 B FDV isolates for which sequence data were available.
