[an epidemiological investigation of bats carrying sars-cov in guangzhou and its vicinity].to detect serve acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus (sars-cov) and sars-like-cov in fruit bats captured in guangzhou and its vicinity.200616864084
description of a new tick species, ixodes collaris n. sp. (acari: ixodidae), from bats (chiroptera: hipposideridae, rhinolophidae) in a recent study on ixodid bat ticks from eurasia, a high genetic difference was found between ixodes vespertilionis from europe and vietnam. accordingly, it was proposed that i. vespertilionis is a species complex, with at least one additional, hitherto undescribed species. the aim of the present study was to investigate the morphology of bat ticks from vietnam and to assess their taxonomic status in comparison with those collected in europe.201627286701
detection and genome characterization of four novel bat hepadnaviruses and a hepevirus in recent years, novel hepadnaviruses, hepeviruses, hepatoviruses, and hepaciviruses have been discovered in various species of bat around the world, indicating that bats may act as natural reservoirs for these hepatitis viruses. in order to further assess the distribution of hepatitis viruses in bat populations in china, we tested the presence of these hepatitis viruses in our archived bat liver samples that originated from several bat species and various geographical regions in china.201728222808
coexistence of multiple coronaviruses in several bat colonies in an abandoned mineshaft.since the 2002-2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome (sars) outbreak prompted a search for the natural reservoir of the sars coronavirus, numerous alpha- and betacoronaviruses have been discovered in bats around the world. bats are likely the natural reservoir of alpha- and betacoronaviruses, and due to the rich diversity and global distribution of bats, the number of bat coronaviruses will likely increase. we conducted a surveillance of coronaviruses in bats in an abandoned mineshaft in mojian ...201626920708
complete genome sequence of a polyomavirus recovered from a pomona leaf-nosed bat (hipposideros pomona) metagenome data set.we report here the complete genome sequence of a polyomavirus found in a nasal/rectal metagenome of hipposideros pomona (pomona leaf-nosed bat). interestingly, the genetic organization and phylogenetic relationships of the new virus suggest greater similarity to recently discovered fish-associated polyomaviruses rather than to polyomavirus species previously observed in bats.201728104645
identification and interspecies transmission of a novel bocaparvovirus among different bat species in china.we report the discovery of a novel bocaparvovirus, bat bocaparvovirus (btbov), in one spleen, four respiratory and 61 alimentary samples from bats of six different species belonging to three families, hipposideridae, rhinolophidae and vespertilionidae. btbov showed a higher detection rate in alimentary samples of rhinolophus sinicus (5.7 %) than those of other bat species (0.43-1.59 %), supporting r. sinicus as the primary reservoir and virus spillover to accidental bat species. btbov peaked dur ...201627902362
molecular phylogeny of hantaviruses harbored by insectivorous bats in côte d'ivoire and vietnam.the recent discovery of genetically distinct hantaviruses in multiple species of shrews and moles prompted a further exploration of their host diversification by analyzing frozen, ethanol-fixed and rnalater®-preserved archival tissues and fecal samples from 533 bats (representing seven families, 28 genera and 53 species in the order chiroptera), captured in asia, africa and the americas in 1981-2012, using rt-pcr. hantavirus rna was detected in pomona roundleaf bats (hipposideros pomona) (family ...201424784569
molecular phylogeny of mobatviruses (hantaviridae) in myanmar and vietnam.the discovery of highly divergent lineages of hantaviruses (family hantaviridae) in shrews, moles, and bats of multiple species raises the possibility that non-rodent hosts may have played a significant role in their evolutionary history. to further investigate this prospect, total rna was extracted from rnalater®-preserved lung tissues of 277 bats (representing five families, 14 genera and 40 species), captured in myanmar and vietnam during 2013⁻2016. hantavirus rna was detected in two of 15 bl ...201930866403
detection of neospora caninum dna by polymerase chain reaction in bats from southern china.neospora caninum is an intracellular protozoan that infects many domestic and wild animals. domestic dogs and other canids function as definitive hosts, while other mammals serve as natural intermediate hosts. in the present study, the brain tissues of bats collected in yunnan province, southern china were tested by n. caninum specific-nested pcr, targeting the nc-5 gene and the internal transcribed spacer 1 (its1) region of the ribosomal dna to determine whether bats could be infected with n. c ...201829581030
first report of the prevalence and genotype of trypanosoma spp. in bats in yunnan province, southwestern china.trypanosome is considered as one of important parasites in almost all mammalian species, which occurs in chiroptera throughout the world. although numerous trypanosome species have been identified in bats in asia, africa, south america and europe, little is known about the genetic diversity and pathogenicity of trypanosomes in chinese bat. recently, some human trypanosoma cruzi infection attributed to a bat-related t. cruzi (tcbat) from the noctilio spp., myotis spp. and artibeus spp was found. ...201931348896
postnatal development in andersen's leaf-nosed bat hipposideros pomona: flight, wing shape, and wing bone lengths.postnatal changes in flight development, wing shape and wing bone lengths of 56 marked neonate hipposideros pomona were investigated under natural conditions in southwest china. flight experiments showed that pups began to flutter with a short horizontal displacement at 10 days and first took flight at 19 days, with most achieving sustained flight at 1 month old. analysis of covariance on wingspan, wing area, and the other seven wing characteristics between 'pre-flight' and 'post-volancy' period ...201121435853
discovery and genomic characterization of a novel bat sapovirus with unusual genomic features and phylogenetic position.sapovirus is a genus of caliciviruses that are known to cause enteric disease in humans and animals. there is considerable genetic diversity among the sapoviruses, which are classified into different genogroups based on phylogenetic analysis of the full-length capsid protein sequence. while several mammalian species, including humans, pigs, minks, and dogs, have been identified as animal hosts for sapoviruses, there were no reports of sapoviruses in bats in spite of their biological diversity. i ...201222514697
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
