Full genome sequence of a new mitovirus from the phytopathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani
Phylogenetic analysis based on RdRp domains clearly showed that RsMV-39 is a member of a distinct species in the genus Mitovirus of the family Mitoviridae, the first full genome sequence of a mycovirus associated with R. solani AG-2-2IIIB. Expand
Characterization of Three Novel Viruses from the Families Nyamiviridae, Orthomyxoviridae, and Peribunyaviridae, Isolated from Dead Birds Collected during West Nile Virus Surveillance in Harris County, Texas
Three novel RNA viruses isolated from dead birds collected during West Nile virus surveillance in Harris County, TX, USA (the Houston metropolitan area) are described and characterizes and have been designated as San Jacinto virus, Mason Creek virus, and Buffalo Bayou virus. Expand
Isolation and sequencing of Dashli virus, a novel Sicilian-like virus in sandflies from Iran; genetic and phylogenetic evidence for the creation of one novel species within the Phlebovirus genus in the Phenuiviridae family
Genetic and phylogenetic analyses based on complete coding genomic sequences indicated that DASHV is most closely related to the Iranian isolates of Sandfly fever Sicilian virus [SFSV], and it is suggested to approve Sand fly fever Sicilyilian virus species consisting of the all aforementioned viruses.

Prevalence, detection and characterization of tomato spotted wilt and iris yellow spot tospoviruses occuring in Zimbabwe.

Characterization of the banana streak virus capsid protein and mapping of the immunodominant continuous B-cell epitopes to the surface-exposed N terminus.
Three-dimensional model of the BSMYV-CP showed that the CP is a multi-domain structure, containing homologues of the retroviral capsid and nucleocapsid proteins, as well as a third, intrinsically disordered protein region at the N terminus, henceforth called the NID domain. Expand
Comparison of biological and genomic characteristics between a newly isolated mink enteritis parvovirus MEV-LHV and an attenuated strain MEV-L
A better understanding of the biological and genomic characteristics of MEV is provided and certain regions and sites that may be involved in viral replication and pathogenicity are identified. Expand
Contribution of newly discovered and emerging viruses to human disease
iii Comparison of detection frequencies of viruses infecting pigs revealed a disease (diarrhoea) association with porcine kobuvirus (PKV) but not EV infections. However, differences in PKV viralExpand
Development and validation of a quantitative competitive ELISA for potency testing of equine anti rabies sera with other potential use.
The c-ELISA method which does not need any species specific reagent has been applied to HRIGs potency testing as an alternative method to Rapid Fluorescent Focus Inhibition Test (RFFIT), thus avoiding the handling of live rabies virus in BSL3 containment. Expand
Investigating novel approaches to the detection of virus neutralising antibodies to rabies and Rift Valley fever virus
Novel VNTs for the detection of VNAb to two important, highly pathogenic, zoonotic viruses; rabies and Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV) are developed, which allows for rapid, high-throughput serosurveillance of this important neglected pathogen. Expand
Lyssavirus in Indian Flying Foxes, Sri Lanka
Phylogenetic analysis of complete virus genome sequences, and geographic location and host species, provides strong evidence that this virus is a putative new lyssavirus species, designated as Gannoruwa bat lySSavirus. Expand


Evidence for Multiple Recent Host Species Shifts among the Ranaviruses (Family Iridoviridae)
The genome of epizootic hematopoietic necrosis virus (EHNV), an Australian fish pathogen, was sequenced and suggests that the ancestral ranavirus was a fish virus and that several recent host shifts have taken place, with subsequent speciation of viruses in their new hosts. Expand
Family Iridoviridae: poor viral relations no longer.
The molecular and genetic basis of viral replication, pathogenesis, and immunity are described, and viral ecology is discussed with reference to members from each of the invertebrate and vertebrate genera. Expand
Characterization of Primary and Memory CD8 T-Cell Responses against Ranavirus (FV3) in Xenopus laevis
In vivo evidence is provided of protective antigen-dependent CD8+ T-cell proliferation, recognition, and memory in fighting a natural pathogen in Xenopus to evaluate adaptive immune responses to the ranavirus frog virus 3. Expand
A decade of advances in iridovirus research.
The ability to detect iridovirus infections has advanced markedly with the adoption of highly sensitive loop-mediated isothermal amplification and multiplex polymerase chain reaction techniques for rapid diagnosis of infected individuals. Expand

Ranaviruses (family Iridoviridae): emerging cold-blooded killers
It is clear that ranaviruses are no longer orphan viruses, and that they have a significant impact on diverse populations of ectothermic animals. Expand
Viral DNA sequences of genes encoding the ATPase and the major capsid protein of tropical iridovirus isolates which are pathogenic to fishes in Japan, South China Sea and Southeast Asian countries
A new genus “Tropivirus” is proposed for tropical iridovirus in the Family Iridoviridae based on the high homology of 5 isolates of tropical irids determined to have a single origin and to be native to Southeast Asian regions. Expand
Analysis of the first complete DNA sequence of an invertebrate iridovirus: coding strategy of the genome of Chilo iridescent virus.
The coding capacity and strategy of the CIV genome was elucidated by the analysis of the complete DNA nucleotide sequence of the viral genome using cycle sequencing by primer walking technology and the highest homologies were detected between putative viral gene products of CIV and lymphocystis disease virus of fish (LCDV). Expand
Complete genome analysis of the mandarin fish infectious spleen and kidney necrosis iridovirus.
It is suggested that ISKNV, RSIV, sea bass iridovirus, grouper iridvirus, and African lampeye iridavirus may belong to a new genus of the Iridoviridae family and are tentatively referred to as cell hypertrophy iridOViruses. Expand
Comparative studies of piscine and amphibian iridoviruses
A total of 30 iridoviruses collected from Australia, South-East Asia, North America, South America and Europe were characterised, and sequence data showed that the coding region for the major coat protein (MCP) is stable for any one species (e.g. EHNV). Expand
