bat coronaviruses and experimental infection of bats, the philippines.fifty-two bats captured during july 2008 in the philippines were tested by reverse transcription-pcr to detect bat coronavirus (cov) rna. the overall prevalence of virus rna was 55.8%. we found 2 groups of sequences that belonged to group 1 (genus alphacoronavirus) and group 2 (genus betacoronavirus) covs. phylogenetic analysis of the rna-dependent rna polymerase gene showed that groups 1 and 2 covs were similar to bat-cov/china/a515/2005 (95% nt sequence identity) and bat-cov/hku9-1/china/2007 ...201020678314
coexistence of different genotypes in the same bat and serological characterization of rousettus bat coronavirus hku9 belonging to a novel betacoronavirus subgroup.rousettus bat coronavirus hku9 (ro-batcov hku9), a recently identified coronavirus of novel betacoronavirus subgroup d, from leschenault's rousette, was previously found to display marked sequence polymorphism among genomes of four strains. among 10 bats with complete rna-dependent rna polymerase (rdrp), spike (s), and nucleocapsid (n) genes sequenced, three and two sequence clades for all three genes were codetected in two and five bats, respectively, suggesting the coexistence of two or three ...201020702646
recent transmission of a novel alphacoronavirus, bat coronavirus hku10, from leschenault's rousettes to pomona leaf-nosed bats: first evidence of interspecies transmission of coronavirus between bats of different suborders.although coronaviruses are known to infect various animals by adapting to new hosts, interspecies transmission events are still poorly understood. during a surveillance study from 2005 to 2010, a novel alphacoronavirus, batcov hku10, was detected in two very different bat species, ro-batcov hku10 in leschenault's rousettes (rousettus leschenaulti) (fruit bats in the suborder megachiroptera) in guangdong and hi-batcov hku10 in pomona leaf-nosed bats (hipposideros pomona) (insectivorous bats in th ...201222933277
a bat-derived putative cross-family recombinant coronavirus with a reovirus gene.the emergence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (sars-cov) in 2002 and middle east respiratory syndrome coronavirus (mers-cov) in 2012 has generated enormous interest in the biodiversity, genomics and cross-species transmission potential of coronaviruses, especially those from bats, the second most speciose order of mammals. herein, we identified a novel coronavirus, provisionally designated rousettus bat coronavirus gccdc1 (ro-batcov gccdc1), in the rectal swab samples of rousett ...201627676249
