During the past few years one of the most astonishing findings in the field of virology has been the realization that viruses that infect hosts from all three domains of life are often structurally similar. The recent burst of structural information points to a need to create a new way to organize the virosphere that, in addition to the current classification, would reflect relationships between virus families. Using the vertical β-barrel major capsid proteins and ATPases related to known viral… Expand

The so far farthest reaches of the double jelly roll capsid protein fold
• Medicine
• Virology Journal
• 2018
Viruses with double jelly roll capsid proteins that infect prokaryotic hosts form a large part of the virosphere that had so far gone unnoticed and their discovery by metagenomics is only a first step towards many more exciting findings. Expand

Endogenous viruses: insights into viral evolution and impact on host biology
• Biology, Medicine

It is argued that the conflict between hosts and viruses has led to the invention and diversification of molecular arsenals, which, in turn, promote the cellular co-option of endogenous viruses. Expand
The complexity of the virus world
• Biology
• Nature Reviews Microbiology
• 2009
The reconstruction of the evolution of the picorna-like superfamily of RNA viruses, which was defined by the analysis of overlapping arrays of conserved genes, rather than a single gene, attempted to infer the history of vertical inheritance and horizontal gene transfers. Expand

• 2011
Structural-based phylogenetic analysis confirms that VACV belongs to the lineage of large icosahedral double-stranded DNA viruses including human adenovirus and the bacteriophages PRD1 and PM2, suggesting that early poxvirus morphogenesis reflects their evolution from a lineage of viruses sharing a common icosa Cathedral ancestor.

Do viruses form lineages across different domains of life?

All viruses are old, maybe preceding cellular life, and virus origins are polyphyletic, as opposed to the idea of a monophyletic origin of cellular life. Expand

It is proposed that the occurrence of a double-barrel trimer coat protein in an icosahedral dsDNA virus with large facets, irrespective of its host, is a very strong indicator of its membership in a lineage of viruses with a common ancestor. Expand
A snapshot of viral evolution from genome analysis of the tectiviridae family.
The DNA sequences for six PRD1-like isolates have been determined, revealing almost invariant genomes for the two main Tectiviridae groups, revealing that the tectiviral proteins can be dissected into a slowly evolving group descended from the ancestor, the viral self, and a more rapidly changing group reflecting interactions with the host.

A new definition for a virus is proposed — a capsid-encoding organism that is composed of proteins and nucleic acids, self-assembles in a nucleocapsid and uses a ribosome-encoded organism for the completion of its life cycle. Expand
Insights into virus evolution and membrane biogenesis from the structure of the marine lipid-containing bacteriophage PM2.
The structure of the marine lipid-containing bacteriophage PM2 is determined by crystallographic analyses of the entire approximately 45 MDa virion and of the outer coat proteins P1 and P2, revealing PM2 to be a primeval member of the PRD1-adenovirus lineage with an icosahedral shell and canonical double beta barrel major coat protein.

The results indicate that SH1 has a complex capsid formed from single β-barrels, an important missing link in hypotheses on viral capsid protein evolution, and unusual, symmetry-mismatched spikes seem to play a role in host adsorption. Expand
