A tortoise-infecting picornavirus expands the host range of the family Picornaviridae

A tortoise-infecting picornavirus expands the host range of the family Picornaviridae While picornaviruses can cause diseases in many mammals, little is known of their host range for replication in non-mammalian vertebrates.

Abstract

While picornaviruses can cause diseases in many mammals, little is known of their host range for replication in non-mammalian vertebrates. Here, a picornavirus in liver and kidney tissues from diseased Sulawesi tortoises ( Indotestudo forsteni ) was genetically characterized. Tortoise rafivirus A (ToRaV-A, KJ415177) represents a potential new genus in the family Picornaviridae , for which we propose the name “ Rafivirus ”. Our finding confirms the susceptibility of reptiles to picornaviruses.
