phylogeography of the mole-shrew (anourosorex yamashinai) in taiwan: implications of interglacial refugia in a high-elevation small test the pleistocene interglacial refugia hypothesis with a high-elevation mammal, we studied the phylogeography of the mole-shrew (anourosorex yamashinai) using partial mitochondrial cytochrome b gene sequences (737 bases). this shrew is endemic to taiwan. it is mainly distributed in the highlands from 1000 to 2500 m in elevation. we examined 103 specimens from 24 localities in three mountain ranges of taiwan and found 36 haplotypes. these haplotypes separated into two major phylogroups (nor ...200616780429
newfound hantavirus in chinese mole shrew, vietnam.sequence analysis of the full-length medium segment and the partial small and large segments of a hantavirus, detected by reverse transcription-pcr in lung tissues of the chinese mole shrew (anourosorex squamipes) captured in cao bang province, vietnam, in december 2006, indicated that it is genetically distinct from rodentborne hantaviruses.200718217572
karyotypes of six soricomorph species from emei shan, sichuan province, china.we report the karyotypes of six species of the order soricomorpha (mammalia), based on specimens collected from emei shan (mount emei) in central sichuan province, china: two talpid species, uropsilus andersoni (diploid chromosome number [2n]=34, fundamental number of chromosome arms including two x chromosomes [fn]=56) and scaptonyx fusicaudus (2n=34, fn=64); and four soricid species, episoriculus sacratus (2n=58, fn=108), anourosorex squamipes (2n=48, fn=96), sorex cylindricauda (2n=30, fn=50) ...200919877840
fugong virus, a novel hantavirus harbored by the small oriental vole (eothenomys eleusis) in china.rodents are natural reservoirs of hantaviruses, which cause two disease types: hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome in eurasia and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome in north america. hantaviruses related human cases have been observed throughout asia, europe, africa, and north america. to date, 23 distinct species of hantaviruses, hosted by reservoir, have been identified. however, the diversity and number of hantaviruses are likely underestimated in china, and hantavirus species that cause disease ...201626880191
phylogeny and origins of hantaviruses harbored by bats, insectivores, and rodents.hantaviruses are among the most important zoonotic pathogens of humans and the subject of heightened global attention. despite the importance of hantaviruses for public health, there is no consensus on their evolutionary history and especially the frequency of virus-host co-divergence versus cross-species virus transmission. documenting the extent of hantavirus biodiversity, and particularly their range of mammalian hosts, is critical to resolving this issue. here, we describe four novel hantavi ...201323408889
genetic variants of cao bang hantavirus in the chinese mole shrew (anourosorex squamipes) and taiwanese mole shrew (anourosorex yamashinai).to determine the genetic diversity and geographic distribution of cao bang virus (cbnv) and to ascertain the existence of cbnv-related hantaviruses, natural history collections of archival tissues from chinese mole shrews (anourosorex squamipes) and taiwanese mole shrews (anourosorex yamashinai), captured in guizho province, people's republic of china, and in nantou county, taiwan, in 2006 and 1989, respectively, were analyzed for hantavirus rna by rt-pcr. pair-wise alignment and comparison of t ...201626921799
interglacial refugia preserved high genetic diversity of the chinese mole shrew in the mountains of southwest china.the mountains of southwest china (msc) harbor extremely high species diversity; however, the mechanism behind this diversity is unknown. we investigated to what degree the topography and climate change shaped the genetic diversity and diversification in these mountains, and we also sought to identify the locations of microrefugia areas in these mountains. for these purposes, we sampled extensively to estimate the intraspecific phylogenetic pattern of the chinese mole shrew (anourosorex squamipes ...201626286667
the complete mitochondrial genome of eurasian water shrew (neomys fodiens).the complete mitogenome sequence of eurasian water shrew (neomys fodiens) was determined using long pcr. the genome was 17,260 bp in length and contained 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal rna genes, 22 transfer rna genes and 1 control region. the overall base composition of the heavy strand is a (33.0%), c (23.2%), t (30.9%) and g (12.9%). the base compositions present clearly the a-t skew, which is most obviously in the control region and protein-coding genes. the extended termination-associ ...201626006281
the complete mitogenome of chinese mole shrew, anourosorex squamipes (soricidae).the chinese mole shrew, anourosorex squamipes belongs to the family soricidae, and widely distributes in central and southern china, northern and south burma, east india, northern vietnam and thailand. in this study, the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of anourosorex squamipes was determined. the mitogenome is 17,121 base pairs in length and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 2 ribosomal rna genes, 22 transfer rna genes, and 1 control region, with base composition of 34.0% a, 31.3% t, 22.0 ...201624708118
