sequence analysis of the complete s genomic segment of a newly identified hantavirus isolated from the white-footed mouse (peromyscus leucopus): phylogenetic relationship with other sigmodontine rodent-borne hantaviruses.four corners (fc) or sin nombre virus, a hantavirus harbored by the deer mouse (peromyscus maniculatus), is the principal etiologic agent of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps). recently, a hantavirus, designated new york (ny) virus, isolated from a white-footed mouse (peromyscus leucopus) captured on shelter island, new york, was molecularly linked to a fatal case of hps occurring in the northeastern united states. to clarify the genetic and phylogenetic relationship between ny and fc viruses a ...19968883362
cocirculation of multiple hantaviruses in texas, with characterization of the small (s) genome of a previously undescribed virus of cotton rats (sigmodon hispidus).an environmental and laboratory investigation was conducted after a fatal childhood case of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome occurred in deaf smith county, texas in may 1995. a trapping campaign was conducted to identify possible rodent carriers. six species of murid and heteromyid rodents were collected, and at least one hantavirus-seropositive specimen was found in each of the five murid species. tissues from a selection of 11 seropositive specimens were examined by the polymerase chain reaction ...19969025697
a small-scale survey of hantavirus in mammals from order to determine if hantaviruses were present in mice and other small mammals in indiana (usa), small mammals were trapped in brown, laporte, tippecanoe and whitley counties. sixty-seven small mammals were trapped during august and september 1994. sixty-three peromyscus leucopus, one microtus pennsylvanicus, one zapus hudsonius and two blarina brevicauda were captured and tested for hantaviruses. six p. leucopus were found to have antibody to sin nombre virus (sn) by igg elisa, and a 139 bp ...19979391967
new york 1 and sin nombre viruses are serotypically distinct viruses associated with hantavirus pulmonary york 1 virus (ny-1) and sin nombre virus (sn) are associated with hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps). ny-1 and sn are derived from unique mammalian hosts and geographic locations but have similar g1 and g2 surface proteins (93 and 97% identical, respectively). focus reduction neutralization assays were used to define the serotypic relationship between ny-1 and sn. sera from ny-1-positive peromyscus leucopus neutralized ny-1 and sn at titers of >/=1/3,200 and </=1/400, respectively (n = 12). ...19999854075
a longitudinal study of bayou virus, hosts, and habitat.what is currently known about the ecology of north american hantaviruses has come largely from studies on sin nombre virus (snv). we conducted a longitudinal study of bayou virus (bayv), the second-leading agent of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in the united states. antibodies to hantavirus were detected from oryzomys palustris (most commonly infected species), sigmodon hispidus, peromyscus leucopus, reithrodontomys fulvescens, and baiomys taylori. however, only o. palustris had viral rna in tis ...200516354810
bayou virus detected in non-oryzomyine rodent hosts: an assessment of habitat composition, reservoir community structure, and marsh rice rat social the united states, bayou virus (bayv) ranks second only to sin nombre virus (snv) in terms of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps) incidents, having been confirmed in cases from texas and louisiana since its discovery in 1994. this study on bayv infection among sympatric, non-oryzomyine rodents ("spillover") in freeport, tx, is the first to link patterns of hantavirus interspecific spillover with the spatiotemporal ecology of the primary host (marsh rice rat, oryzomys palustris). mark-recaptur ...200920836801
interspecific comparison of hantavirus prevalence in peromyscus populations from a fragmented agro-ecosystem in indiana, usa.comparatively little is known about hantavirus prevalence within rodent populations from the midwestern us, where two species of native mice, the prairie deer mouse ( peromyscus maniculatus bairdii) and the white-footed mouse ( peromyscus leucopus noveboracensis), are dominant members of rodent communities. we sampled both species in central indiana and tested individuals for presence of hantavirus antibodies to determine whether seroprevalence (percent of individuals with antibodies reactive to ...201828977768
