Novel seadornavirus (family Reoviridae ) related to Banna virus in Europe

Novel seadornavirus (family Reoviridae ) related to Banna virus in Europe Banna virus, whose genome is composed of 12 segments of double-stranded RNA, is a member of the genus Seadornavirus in the family Reoviridae and is thought to be an emerging mosquito-transmitted human pathogen in Southeast Asia. A novel phylogenetic relative of Banna virus (Balaton virus, BALV, JX947843-JX947850 and KC522611-KC522612) was identified using viral metagenomics in the intestinal contents of freshwater carp ( Cyprinus carpio ) in Hungary. The amino acid sequence identity of Balaton virus to homologous proteins of Banna viruses was 25-26 % for segment 12 (VP12) and 61-62 % for segment 1 (VP1), indicating that Balaton virus potentially represents a novel seadornavirus species. This study demonstrates that seadornaviruses are genetically diverse, not restricted geographically to Southeast Asia and present in an aquatic environment. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Banna virus, whose genome is composed of 12 segments of double-stranded RNA, is a member of the genus Seadornavirus in the family Reoviridae and is thought to be an emerging mosquito-transmitted human pathogen in Southeast Asia. A novel phylogenetic relative of Banna virus (Balaton virus, BALV, JX947843-JX947850 and KC522611-KC522612) was identified using viral metagenomics in the intestinal contents of freshwater carp ( Cyprinus carpio ) in Hungary. The amino acid sequence identity of Balaton virus to homologous proteins of Banna viruses was 25-26 % for segment 12 (VP12) and 61-62 % for segment 1 (VP1), indicating that Balaton virus potentially represents a novel seadornavirus species. This study demonstrates that seadornaviruses are genetically diverse, not restricted geographically to Southeast Asia and present in an aquatic environment.
