genome sequence of an aichivirus detected in a common pipistrelle bat (pipistrellus pipistrellus).the family picornaviridae includes important human and animal pathogens that are associated with a wide range of diseases and, in some cases, have zoonotic potential. during epidemiological surveillance of bats, we identified, by next-generation sequencing (ngs) techniques, the presence of picornavirus rna in a common pipistrelle bat (pipistrellus pipistrellus). by coupling ngs, primer-walking strategies, and sequence-independent protocols to obtain the sequences of the 5' and 3' termini, we rec ...202032056001
complete genome sequence of a novel picornavirus, canine picornavirus, discovered in dogs.we discovered a novel canine picornavirus in fecal, nasopharyngeal, and urine samples from dogs. the coding potential of its genome (5'-vp4-vp2-vp3-vp1-2a-2b-2c-3a-3b-3c(pro)-3d(pol)-3', where 3c(pro) is 3c protease and 3d(pol) is 3d polymerase) is similar to those of other picornaviruses, with putative p1, p2, and p3 sharing 54% to 58%, 60%, and 64% to 67% amino acid identities with bat picornavirus groups 1, 2, and 3.201222354943
molecular epidemiology of canine picornavirus in hong kong and dubai and proposal of a novel genus in picornaviridae.previously, we reported the discovery of a novel canine picornavirus (canpv) in the fecal sample of a dog. in this molecular epidemiology study, canpv was detected in 15 (1.11%) of 1347 canine fecal samples from hong kong and one (0.76%) of 131 canine fecal samples from dubai, with viral loads 1.06×10(3) to 6.64×10(6) copies/ml. complete genome sequencing and phylogenetic analysis showed that canpv was clustered with feline picornavirus (fepv), bat picornavirus (batpv) 1 to 3, ia io picornavirus ...201627051044
Identification of a novel feline picornavirus from the domestic cat.While picornaviruses are known to infect different animals, their existence in the domestic cat was unknown. We describe the discovery of a novel feline picornavirus (FePV) from stray cats in Hong Kong. From samples from 662 cats, FePV was detected in fecal samples from 14 cats and urine samples from 2 cats by reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR). Analysis of five FePV genomes revealed a distinct phylogenetic position and genomic features, with low sequence homologies to known picornaviruses espec ...201222031936
genetic characterization of a second novel picornavirus from an amphibian host, smooth newt (lissotriton vulgaris).in this study, a novel picornavirus was identified in faecal samples from smooth newts (lissotriton vulgaris). the complete genome of picornavirus strain newt/ii-5-pilis/2014/hun (kx463670) is 7755 nt long with type-iv ires and has 39.6% aa sequence identity in the protein p1 to the corresponding protein of bat picornavirus (kj641686, unassigned) and 42.7% and 53.5% aa sequence identity in the 2c and 3cd protein, respectively, to oscivirus (gu182410, genus oscivirus). interestingly, the l-protei ...201728005212
