The distribution of West Nile virus has expanded in the past 6 years to include the 48 contiguous United States and seven Canadian provinces, as well as Mexico, the Caribbean islands, and Colombia. The suggestion of the emergence of a dominant genetic variant has led to an intensive analysis of isolates made across North America. We have sequenced the pre-membrane and envelope genes of 74 isolates and the complete genomes of 25 isolates in order to determine if a dominant genotype has arisen… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Phylogenetic analysis of West Nile virus in Quebec, Canada, 2004-2016: Co-circulation of distinct variants harbouring conserved amino acid motifs in North America.
TLDR
The phylogenetic characterization of twenty-six WNV genomes isolated from mosquitoes in the province of Quebec shows that WNV strains found in Quebec are phylogenetically related to American strains collected in northern and southern regions. Expand
Evolution of New Genotype of West Nile Virus in North America
TLDR
Spread of the southwestern US genotype (SW/WN03) from the Arizona/Colorado/northern Mexico region to California, Illinois, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, and the Texas Gulf Coast demonstrates continued evolution of WNV. Expand
Molecular Epidemiology and Evolution of West Nile Virus in North America
TLDR
The dynamic emergence, displacement, and extinction of multiple WNV genotypes in the US from 1999–2012 indicates the continued evolution of WNV in North America. Expand
Role of the mutant spectrum in adaptation and replication of West Nile virus.
TLDR
Evidence is provided of the importance of quasispecies dynamics in the adaptation of a flavivirus to new and changing environments and hosts, with little evidence of significant genetic change. Expand
Molecular evolution of West Nile virus in a northern temperate region: Connecticut, USA 1999-2008.
TLDR
Examination of patterns of viral lineage persistence and replacement in Connecticut over 10 consecutive transmission seasons by phylogenetic analysis suggests that annual reemergence of WNV is driven by both reintroduction and local-overwintering of virus. Expand
Evolutionary characterization of the West Nile Virus complete genome.
TLDR
It is found that while the E region lacks resolution and can potentially result in misleading conclusions, the full NS3 or NS5 regions have strong phylogenetic signal and future evolutionary studies should focus on NS3 and NS5 in order to maximize the available sequences. Expand
Short report: comparison of oral infectious dose of West Nile virus isolates representing three distinct genotypes in Culex quinquefasciatus.
TLDR
Results indicate that selection of these viral genotypes was independent of viral oral infectivity in the mosquito, and two attenuated North American genetic variants did not correlate with persistence of the genotype in nature. Expand
The Molecular Epidemiology and Evolution of Murray Valley Encephalitis Virus: Recent Emergence of Distinct Sub-lineages of the Dominant Genotype 1
TLDR
The demonstration of co-circulation of all contemporary genetic lineages of MVEV in northwestern Australia, supports the contention that this region is the enzootic focus for this virus. Expand
North American West Nile virus genotype isolates demonstrate differential replicative capacities in response to temperature.
TLDR
Data indicate that the NS1 and NS4A mutations identified in some WN02 isolates could reduce thermal stability and impede replication of virus at temperatures observed in febrile avian hosts. Expand
Diversification of West Nile virus in a subtropical region
TLDR
Analysis of isolates collected from three distinct locations in Florida expanded the understanding of the temporal and spatial compartmentalization of West Nile virus subtypes within North America. Expand

A phylogenetic approach to following West Nile virus in Connecticut
TLDR
Part of the viral genome encodes portions of the nucleocapsid and envelope proteins and includes the entire coding regions for the premembrane and membrane proteins will enable us to follow the geographical and temporal movement of variant WN virus strains as they adapt to North America. Expand
Limited evolution of West Nile virus has occurred during its southwesterly spread in the United States.
TLDR
The presence of unique patterns of small numbers of mutations in North American West Nile strains studied to date may suggest the absence of a strong selective pressure to drive the emergence of dominant variants. Expand
Emergence of attenuated West Nile virus variants in Texas, 2003.
TLDR
Phenotypic changes occurring in the North American WNV population are described for the first time, indicating microevolution of WNV and the emergence of isolates exhibiting phenotypic variation. Expand

In late summer 1999, an outbreak of human encephalitis occurred in the northeastern United States that was concurrent with extensive mortality in crows (Corvus species) as well as the deaths ofExpand
Genetic Variation among Temporally and Geographically Distinct West Nile Virus Isolates, United States, 2001, 2002
TLDR
The results show the geographic clustering of genetically similar WNV isolates and the possible emergence of a dominant variant circulating across much of the United States during 2002. Expand
Genetic and phenotypic variation of West Nile virus in New York, 2000-2003.
TLDR
Viral genetic diversity was greater in 2002 and 2003 at both the nucleotide and amino acid levels than in previous years due to the emergence of a new WNV genotype in 2002, and this genotype persisted and became dominant in 2003. Expand

TLDR
The phylogenetic trees revealed the presence of two genetic lineages of WN viruses, which can be further subdivided into three monophyletic clades. Expand
