temporal and geographic evidence for evolution of sin nombre virus using molecular analyses of viral rna from colorado, new mexico and montana.all viruses in the family bunyaviridae possess a tripartite genome, consisting of a small, a medium, and a large rna segment. bunyaviruses therefore possess considerable evolutionary potential, attributable to both intramolecular changes and to genome segment reassortment. hantaviruses (family bunyaviridae, genus hantavirus) are known to cause human hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome or hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. the primary reservoir host of sin nombre virus is the deer mouse (peromyscus ...200919602267
muleshoe virus and other hantaviruses associated with neotomine or sigmodontine rodents in texas.the broad objective of this study was to increase our knowledge of muleshoe virus and other hantaviruses associated with cricetid rodents in texas. anti-hantavirus antibody was found in 38 (3.2%) of 1171 neotomine rodents and 6 (1.8%) of 332 sigmodontine rodents from 10 texas counties; hantaviral rna was detected in 23 (71.9%) of 32 antibody-positive rodents. analyses of nucleocapsid protein gene sequences indicated muleshoe virus infection in four hispid cotton rats (sigmodon hispidus) from nor ...201728714801
genetic identification and characterization of limestone canyon virus, a unique peromyscus-borne hantavirus.hantaviruses, family bunyaviridae, are rodent-borne rna viruses that can cause hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (hps) in various regions of the americas. a coevolutionary relationship exists between hantaviruses and their specific rodent reservoir hosts; the phylogeny of the viruses generally matches that of the rodents. there are several peromyscus-borne hantaviruses, including sin nombre virus, the most common cause of hps in north america. this report describes the genetic detection and characte ...200111485402
