genetic characterization of hantaviruses transmitted by the korean field mouse (apodemus peninsulae), far east an epizootiologic survey of 122 rodents captured in vladivostok, russia, antibodies positive for hantavirus were found in apodemus peninsulae (4/70), a. agrarius (1/39), and clethrionomys rufocanus (1/8). the hantavirus sequences identified in two seropositive a. peninsulae and two patients with hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (hfrs) from the primorye region of far east russia were designated as solovey and primorye, respectively. the nucleotide sequences of the solovey, primorye, and a ...200212141960
genetic and antigenic characterization of the amur virus associated with hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.the genetic and antigenic characteristics of the amur (amr) and far east (fe) virus lineages, which are both within the genus hantavirus, were studied. representative viruses, h5 and b78 for amr and bao 14 for fe, were used. the entire small (s) and medium (m) segments, except for the 3'- and 5'-ends, were sequenced. the deduced amino acid sequences of amr had 96.7 and 92.0-92.2% identities with the hantaan (htn) virus in the s and m segments, respectively. the amino acid sequences of fe had 99. ...200415041180
soochong virus and amur virus might be the same entities of hantavirus.amur virus (amrv) and soochong virus (soov) were reported to be carried by korean field mice (apodemus peninsulae) in the far east of russia, china, and korea. the distinction and demarcation between these two viruses have been a matter of debate. in order to clarify this issue and to confirm taxonomic position of amrv and soov, the extensive phylogenetic analyses based on entire s segment and entire m segment sequences of amrv, soov and other reference virus strains deposited in genbank, were c ...200717854038
[actual problems of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome].from 2000 to 2011 85 600 cases of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (hfrs) were registered in russian federation. epidemically active foci of hfrs infection are located generally in temperate latitudes of the european part and the far east. in the far east regions whose fraction of all the hfrs disease cases in russia is around 2%, the causative agents of the infection are hantaan, amur, seoul hantaviruses, the natural reservoir for those are striped field mouse, korean field mouse and brown ...201323805652
[b chromosome morphotypes of apodemus peninsulae (rodentia) from the russian far east].polymorphism of b chromosome morphotypes in the natural populations of the korean field mouse apodemus peninsulae (n = 367) has been studied in five regions of the russian far east: magadan and amur regions, the jewish autonomous region, khabarovsk and primorskii regions. six groups of b chromosome morphotypes have been described on the size and morphological parameters. on the basis of their combinations 78 cell clones have been revealed, 23 of which are found in the animals with a stable karyo ...201222567902
