identification and characterization of porcine kobuvirus variant isolated from suckling piglet in gansu province, china.kobuviruses comprise three species, the aichivirus a, aichivirus b, and aichivirus c (porcine kobuvirus). porcine kobuvirus is endemic to pig farms and is not restricted geographically but, rather, is distributed worldwide. the complete genomic sequences of four porcine kobuvirus strains isolated during a diarrhea outbreak in piglets in the gansu province of china were determined. two of these strains exhibited variations relative to the traditional strains. the potential 3c/3d cleavage sites of ...201324145960
the 3a protein from multiple picornaviruses utilizes the golgi adaptor protein acbd3 to recruit pi4kiiiβthe activity of phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase class iii beta (pi4kiiiβ) has been shown to be required for the replication of multiple picornaviruses, however it is unclear whether a physical association between pi4kiiiβ and the viral replication machinery exists and if it does, whether association is necessary. we examined the ability of the 3a protein from 18 different picornaviruses to form a complex with pi4kiiiβ by affinity purification of strep-tagged transiently transfected constructs foll ...201222258260
kobuviruses - a comprehensive review.kobuviruses are members of the large and growing family picornaviridae. until now, two official, aichi virus and bovine kobuvirus, and one candidate kobuvirus species, 'porcine kobuvirus', have been identified in human, cattle and swine, respectively. in addition, kobu-like viruses were detected very recently in the bat. aichi virus could be one of the causative agents of gastroenteritis in humans, and kobuviruses probably also cause diarrhoea in cattle and swine. although aichi virus has been d ...201121294214
kobuvirus (aichivirus b) infection in brazilian cattle herds.there are few studies involving the detection of aichivirus b in cattle herds worldwide, and this virus has never been diagnosed in south america. this study evaluated 222 diarrhoeic faecal samples from four brazilian geographical regions (south, southeast, midwest, and north), collected between february 2010 to may 2012. to evaluate the frequency of occurrence in different types of livestock, samples from beef (n = 105) and dairy (n = 117) cattle herds were evaluated. to determine the category ...201424590582
a distinct class of internal ribosomal entry site in members of the kobuvirus and proposed salivirus and paraturdivirus genera of the picornaviridae.the 5'-untranslated regions (5' utrs) of picornavirus genomes contain an internal ribosomal entry site (ires) that promotes the end-independent initiation of translation. picornavirus iress are classified into four structurally distinct groups, each with different initiation factor requirements. here, we identify a fifth ires class in members of kobuvirus, salivirus, and paraturdivirus genera of picornaviridae: aichi virus (av), bovine kobuvirus (bkv), canine kobuvirus (ckov), mouse kobuvirus (m ...201122114340
molecular detection of kobuviruses and recombinant noroviruses in cattle in continental europe.two genotypes (jena and newbury2) and two intergenotype recombinant strains have been recognized in bovine noroviruses. several studies have shown an apparent predominance of bovine infection with newbury2-related (genotype 2) strains. bovine stool samples were screened with two primer pairs targeting both the polymerase and the capsid genes. among the predominant genotype 2 sequences, two were genetically related to the recombinant strain thirsk10. the detection of sequences genetically related ...200919816652
