Perina nuda picorna-like virus (PnPV) is an insect-infecting RNA virus with morphological and physicochemical characters similar to the Picornaviridae. In this article, we determine the complete genome sequence and analyze the gene organization of PnPV. The genome of PnPV consists of 9476 nucleotides (nts) excluding the poly(A) tail and contains a single large open reading frame (ORF) of 8958 nts (2986 codons) flanked by 473 and 45 nt noncoding regions on the 5' and 3' ends, respectively…

Sequence analysis and genomic organization of a new insect picorna-like virus, Ectropis obliqua picorna-like virus, isolated from Ectropis obliqua.

Phylogenetic analysis showed that EoPV is most closely related to PnPV and suggests that these four insect picorna-like viruses might constitute a new group of insect-infectious RNA viruses.

Kelp Fly Virus: a Novel Group of Insect Picorna-Like Viruses as Defined by Genome Sequence Analysis and a Distinctive Virion Structure

The complete genomic sequence of kelp fly virus (KFV) has been determined and analyses of its genomic and structural organization and phylogeny show that it belongs to a hitherto undescribed group within the picorna-like virus superfamily.

The 5 0 untranslated region of Perina nuda virus (PnV) possesses a strong internal translation activity in baculovirus-infected insect cells

This is the first report of internal translation activity for a baculovirus expression system (BEVS) in the iflavirus 5 0 sequence and may facilitate the development of polycistronic bacULovirus transfer vectors that can be used in BEVS for the production of multiple protein complexes.

Complete sequence of a picorna-like virus of the genus Iflavirus replicating in the mite Varroa destructor.

To determine whether VDV-1 replicates in mites, a selective RT-PCR was done to detect the presence of the negative-sense RNA strand and the virus isolate could be discriminated by two primer sets, each specific to one virus.

In vitro and in vivo identification of structural and sequence elements in the 5' untranslated region of Ectropis obliqua picorna-like virus required for internal initiation.

This study reveals that the EoPV IRES element is unique, although it has features in common with the type II IRESs.

Structure prediction of the 5' non-translated region (NTR) of four iflavirus RNAs revealed two types of potential internal ribosome entry site (IRES), which are discriminated by size and level of



An insect picorna-like virus, Plautia stali intestine virus, has genes of capsid proteins in the 3' part of the genome.

The complete genome of an insect picorna-like virus, Plautia stali intestine virus (PSIV), was cloned and sequenced and the deduced amino acid sequence of the capsid proteins showed homology to those of the proteins encoded in the 3' part of the genomes of widely distributed insect picorno-like viruses, cricket paralysis virus, and Drosophila C virus.

The novel genome organization of the insect picorna-like virus Drosophila C virus suggests this virus belongs to a previously undescribed virus family.

The finding of this novel genome organization for DCV shows that this virus is not a member of the Picornaviridae as previously thought, but belongs to a distinct and hitherto unrecognized virus family.

Analysis of genetic information of an insect picorna-like virus, infectious flacherie virus of silkworm: evidence for evolutionary relationships among insect, mammalian and plant picorna(-like) viruses

Computer analysis identified the sequences similar to the consensus sequences of 2C (helicase?), 3C (protease), and 3D (RNA polymerase) conserved among mammalian and plant picorna(-like) viruses.

Nucleotide sequence analysis shows that Rhopalosiphum padi virus is a member of a novel group of insect-infecting RNA viruses.

Data suggest that RhPV, Drosophila C virus, Plautia stali intestine virus, and probably cricket paralysis virus are members of a unique group of small RNA viruses that infect primarily insects.

Analysis of the complete genome sequence of acute bee paralysis virus shows that it belongs to the novel group of insect-infecting RNA viruses.

The overall genome structure of ABPV showed similarities to those of Drosophila C virus, Plautia stali intestine virus, Rhopalosiphum padi virus, and Himetobi P virus, which have been classified into a novel group of picorna-like insect-infecting RNA viruses called cricket paralysis-like viruses.

Although the deduced APV genomic organization in some aspects resembles that of the picornaviruses, its overall genomic organization indicates that APV is a distinct species only distantly related to the Picornaviralidae.

It is proposed that BQCV belongs to the group of picorna-like, insect-infecting RNA viruses constituted by DCV, RhPV, HiPV and PSIV.

Nucleotide sequence analysis of Triatoma virus shows that it is a member of a novel group of insect RNA viruses.

It is proposed that TrV also belongs to this new virus family, based on similarities of genome organization, which has been proposed that they are not members of the Picornaviridae, as previously thought, but belong to a new virusfamily.
