  • Identification and characterization of multiple porcine astrovirus
           genotypes in Hunan province, China
    • Authors: Chao-Ting Xiao; Zhang Luo; Sun-Liang Lv; Tanja Opriessnig; Run-Cheng Li; Xing-Long Yu
      Pages: 943 - 952
      Abstract: Abstract Astroviruses (AstVs) can infect a variety of hosts, including mammalian and avian species, and are commonly associated with enteric infections. Recently, mammalian AstVs have been linked to extra-intestinal manifestations, including neurologic disorders in humans, cattle and minks, demonstrating zoonotic potential. So far, five porcine AstV (PAstV) genotypes have been identified, with PAstV1, PAstV2, PAstV3 and PAstV5 implicated in cross-species transmission. Our knowledge about PAstV epidemiology in China is still limited. In this study, two duplex differential RT-PCR assays were developed to investigate the distribution and prevalence of PAstV1, PAstV2, PAstV4 and PAstV5. Two hundred eighteen samples were collected from 33 farms and pigs with known diarrhea status in nine regions of Hunan province in China. Specifically, 126 small intestines, 51 fecal swabs, 20 lungs, 19 spleens and two kidneys were obtained. PAstVs were detected in all nine regions and in 81.8% (27/33) of the pig farms investigated. The overall prevalence of PAstV was 46.3% (101/218), with PAstV5 as the predominant type, with a positive rate of 24.8% (54/218). The prevalence of PAstV4, PAstV1 and PAstV2 was 16.1% (35/218), 14.7% (32/218) and 10.1% (22/218), respectively. Besides being present in intestines and fecal swabs, PAstV RNA was also detected in lungs, spleens and kidneys. Sequencing revealed a high level of genetic divergence within each genotype, and a higher positive rate of PAstV5 was associated with pigs with diarrhea compared to pigs without diarrhea. This study revealed for the first time that PAstV4 is circulating in China, and that PAstV5 is the dominant genotype in pig herds in Hunan province in China.

  • Identification of novel Newcastle disease virus sub-genotype VII-(j) based
           on the fusion protein
    • Authors: Majid Esmaelizad; Vafa Mayahi; Maryam Pashaei; Hossein Goudarzi
      Pages: 971 - 978
      Abstract: Abstract Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is believed to be the cause of fatal poultry disease worldwide. The fusion (F) protein plays a key role in virus pathogenesis, and it is also used for Newcastle disease virus classification. In this study, we determined the complete coding sequence of the F gene in new velogenic NDV isolates with an intravenous pathogenicity index (IVPI) of 1.8 and a mean death time (MDT) of 72 or 48 h. Complete sequences of the F genes of new Iranian isolates were amplified and sequenced in both directions. These isolates were compared to 195 nucleotide sequences from GenBank (available as of 07/17/2016). A phylogenetic tree was constructed for the F gene, using MEGA6 software with statistical analysis based on 500 bootstrap replicates. Evolutionary distances revealed that the new virulent isolates from Iran belonged to genotype VII in a new distinct sub-genotype named VII-(j). This new sub-genotype showed 3% divergence from genotype VIId. Recombination analysis showed that these new isolates were not recombinant NDVs.

      Abstract: Abstract Qinghai Lake is a major migratory-bird breeding site that has experienced several highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (AIV) epizootics. Plateau pikas (Ochotona curzoniae) have previously been implicated in the ecology of avian influenza virus in this region. We first isolated an H9N2 AIV (A/Pika/Menyuan/01/2008) from plateau pikas between November 2008 and October 2009. Sequence analysis showed that the A/Pika/Menyuan/01/2008 AIV was closely related to the H9N2 AIV strain (A/Turkey/Wisconsin/ 1/1966). Our findings suggested that plateau pikas may contribute to AIV epidemiology in the Qinghai Lake region.

      Abstract: Abstract Oncogene-containing retroviruses are generated by recombination events between viral and cellular sequences, a phenomenon called “oncogene capture”. The captured cellular genes, referred to as “v-onc” genes, then acquire new oncogenic properties. We report a novel feline leukemia virus (FeLV), designated “FeLV–AKT”, that has captured feline c-AKT1 in feline lymphoma. FeLV–AKT contains a gag–AKT fusion gene that encodes the myristoylated Gag matrix protein and the kinase domain of feline c-AKT1, but not its pleckstrin homology domain. Therefore, it differs structurally from the v-Akt gene of murine retrovirus AKT8. AKT may be involved in the mechanisms underlying malignant diseases in cats.

  • Restricted replication of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) in a
           birnavirus-carrier cell culture

      Pages: 1037 - 1041
      Abstract: Abstract Viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) and infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV) are economically important pathogens of the salmonid aquaculture industry. In previous work we demonstrated that a cell line persistently infected with IPNV (EPCIPNV) exhibited antiviral activity against superinfection with the heterologous virus VHSV. This work extends our study by analyzing the replication of VHSV in the IPNV-persistently infected cells. At early and late stages of infection VHSV RNA synthesis, as well as VHSV-induced syncytia formation, were examined in EPCIPNV cultures. During the course of VHSV infection the accumulation of VHSV RNA is inhibited in EPCIPNV cells. Typical VHSV-induced membrane fusion at the late stages of infection is also absent in the IPNV carrier cultures. VHSV binding and fusion to EPCIPNV cells did not appear to be impaired, but a potent inhibitory effect on VHSV RNA synthesis is exerted at early times of infection in the IPNV carrier culture. In conclusion, the EPCIPNV cells are considered to be a useful system to study viral interference as well to analyze the mechanisms underlying the phenomenon of superinfection exclusion.

  • Genetic characterization of a second novel picornavirus from an amphibian
           host, smooth newt ( Lissotriton vulgaris )
    • Authors: Péter Pankovics; Ákos Boros; Zoltán Tóth; Tung Gia Phan; Eric Delwart; Gábor Reuter
      Pages: 1043 - 1050
      Abstract: Abstract In this study, a novel picornavirus was identified in faecal samples from smooth newts (Lissotriton vulgaris). The complete genome of picornavirus strain newt/II-5-Pilis/2014/HUN (KX463670) is 7755 nt long with type-IV IRES and has 39.6% aa sequence identity in the protein P1 to the corresponding protein of bat picornavirus (KJ641686, unassigned) and 42.7% and 53.5% aa sequence identity in the 2C and 3CD protein, respectively, to oscivirus (GU182410, genus Oscivirus). Interestingly, the L-protein of newt/II-5-Pilis/2014/HUN has conserved aa motifs that are similar to those found in phosphatase-1 catalytic (PP1C) subunit binding region (pfam10488) proteins. This second amphibian-origin picornavirus could represent a novel species and could be a founding member of a potential novel picornavirus genus.

      Abstract: Abstract Bovine leukemia virus (BLV) causes enzootic bovine leucosis (EBL) and is responsible for substantial economic losses in cattle globally. However, information in Africa on the disease is limited. Here, based on clinical, hematological, pathological and molecular analyses, two clinical cases of EBL were confirmed in a dairy cattle herd in Zambia. In contrast, proviral DNA was detected by PCR in five apparently healthy cows from the same herd, suggesting subclinical BLV infection. Phylogenetic analysis of the env gene showed that the identified BLV clustered with Eurasian genotype 4 strains. This is the first report of confirmed EBL in Zambia.

      Abstract: Abstract Picobirnavirus (PBV) is a small, bi-segmented, double-stranded RNA virus. Taxonomically, the genus Picobirnavirus belongs to the Picobirnaviridae family. PBV infects a wide range of hosts and causes opportunistic infections, but its role in diarrheal disease remains unclear. To determine the prevalence and genetic diversity of porcine PBVs in Northern Thailand, 380 fecal samples collected from diarrheic and non-diarrheic piglets, raised in 22 pig farms, were tested for the presence of PBV. Reverse-transcription PCR (RT-PCR) was performed using primer sets specific to the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) gene. PBV was detected in 86 of 265 (32.5%) diarrheic piglets and in 26 of 115 (22.6%) non-diarrheic piglets. All the PBV strains detected in this study belonged to genogroup I and a high proportion of PBV-positive piglets were co-infected with group A rotavirus (RVA) and bocavirus (BoV). Phylogenetic analysis of representative genogroup I strains revealed remarkably high similarity between strains; these formed a monophyletic cluster with 97-100% sequence identity in the RdRp gene. The strains were also closely related to genogroup I PBV Chinese porcine strain. The findings indicate that PBV infection is common in piglets with and without diarrhea in Northern Thailand.

  • Porcine mast cells infected with H1N1 influenza virus release histamine
           and inflammatory cytokines and chemokines
    • Authors: In Hong Lee; Hyun Soo Kim; Sang Heui Seo
      Pages: 1067 - 1071
      Abstract: Abstract Mast cells reside in many tissues, including the lungs, and might play a role in enhancing influenza virus infections in animals. In this study, we cultured porcine mast cells from porcine bone marrow cells with IL-3 and stem cell factor to study the infectivity and activation of the 2009 pandemic H1N1 influenza virus of swine origin. Porcine mast cells were infected with H1N1 influenza virus, without the subsequent production of infectious viruses but were activated, as indicated by the release of histamines. Inflammatory cytokine- and chemokine-encoding genes, including IL-1α, IL-6, CXCL9, CXCL10, and CXCL11, were upregulated in the infected porcine mast cells. Our results suggest that mast cells could be involved in enhancing influenza-virus-mediated disease in infected animals.

  • Characterization of a novel dsRNA mycovirus of Trichoderma atroviride
    • Authors: Song Hee Lee; Suk-Hyun Yun; Jeesun Chun; Dae-Hyuk Kim
      Pages: 1073 - 1077
      Abstract: Abstract Molecular characterization of the most common dsRNA element from Trichoderma atroviride indicated that it comprised 8,566 bp and encoded two large open reading frames (ORF1 and 2). The two ORFs were found to overlap by 46 bp with a typical (−1) slippery heptanucelotide sequence. The deduced protein sequences of ORF1 and ORF2 showed significant similarities to those of known mycoviral structural proteins and RNA-dependent RNA polymerases, respectively. Phylogenetic analysis indicated that this dsRNA is a member of a distinct species related to a group of unclassified mycoviruses; therefore, it was named Trichoderma atroviride mycovirus 1 (TaMV1).

      Pages: 1079 - 1082
      Abstract: Abstract The complete genomes of a monopartite begomovirus (genus Begomovirus, family Geminiviridae) and an associated betasatellite found infecting Vernonia amygdalina Delile (family Compositae) in Uganda were cloned and sequenced. Begomoviruses isolated from two samples showed the highest nucleotide sequence identity (73.1% and 73.2%) to an isolate of the monopartite begomovirus tomato leaf curl Vietnam virus, and betasatellites from the same samples exhibited the highest nucleotide sequence identity (67.1% and 68.2%) to vernonia yellow vein Fujian betasatellite. Following the current taxonomic criteria for begomovirus species demarcation, the isolates sequenced here represent a novel begomovirus species. Based on symptoms observed in the field, we propose the name vernonia crinkle virus (VeCrV) for this novel begomovirus and vernonia crinkle betasatellite (VeCrB) for the associated betasatellite. This is the first report of a monopartite begomovirus-betasatellite complex from Uganda.

      Pages: 1083 - 1087
      Abstract: Abstract The complete genomic sequence of a variant of the recently reported maize-associated totivirus (MATV) from China was obtained from commercial maize in Ecuador. The genome of MATV-Ec (Ecuador) (4,998 bp) is considerably longer than that of MATV-Ch (China) (3,956 bp), the main difference due to a ≈ 1-kb-long capsid-protein-encoding fragment that is completely absent from the Chinese genome. Sequence alignments between MATV-Ec and MATV-Ch showed an overall identity of 82% at the nucleotide level, whereas at the amino acid level, the viruses exhibited 95% and 94% identity for the putative capsid protein and the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp), respectively. Phylogenetic analysis of the viral RdRp domain indicated that MATV-Ec and MATV-Ch share a common ancestor with other plant-associated totiviruses, with Panax notoginseng virus A as the closest relative. MATV-Ec was detected in 46% (n = 80) of maize plants tested in this study, but not in endophytic fungi isolated from plants positive for the virus.

  • Molecular characterization of a new soybean-infecting member of the genus
           Nepovirus identified by high-throughput sequencing
    • Authors: Tuba Yasmin; Berlin D. Nelson; Houston A. Hobbs; Nancy K. McCoppin; Kris N. Lambert; Leslie L. Domier
      Pages: 1089 - 1092
      Abstract: Abstract The complete nucleotide sequence of a new soybean-infecting member of the genus Nepovirus (provisionally named “soybean latent spherical virus” [SLSV]) was identified by high-throughput sequencing of RNAs from soybean leaf samples from North Dakota, USA. The sequences of RNAs 1 (8,190 nt) and 2 (5,788 nt) were completed by rapid amplification of cDNA ends. Each contained a single long open reading frame and a 3’ nontranslated region of greater than 1,500 nt. The predicted amino acid sequences of the two ORFs were most closely related to nepoviruses in subgroup C. Full-length cDNAs of RNAs 1 and 2 were cloned and used to inoculate soybean plants, which did not display obvious symptoms. These results suggest that SLSV represents a new species in the genus Nepovirus.

      Pages: 1093 - 1097
      Abstract: Abstract Apple stem grooving virus (ASGV), apple chlorotic leaf spot virus (ACLSV), and prunus necrotic ringspot virus (PNRSV) were identified in a crab apple tree by small RNA deep sequencing. The complete genome sequence of ACLSV isolate BJ (ACLSV-BJ) was 7554 nucleotides and shared 67.0%-83.0% nucleotide sequence identity with other ACLSV isolates. A phylogenetic tree based on the complete genome sequence of all available ACLSV isolates showed that ACLSV-BJ clustered with the isolates SY01 from hawthorn, MO5 from apple, and JB, KMS and YH from pear. The complete nucleotide sequence of ASGV-BJ was 6509 nucleotides (nt) long and shared 78.2%-80.7% nucleotide sequence identity with other isolates. ASGV-BJ and the isolate ASGV_kfp clustered together in the phylogenetic tree as an independent clade. Recombination analysis showed that isolate ASGV-BJ was a naturally occurring recombinant.

      Abstract: Abstract Menghai rhabdovirus (MRV) was isolated from Aedes albopictus in Menghai county of Yunnan Province, China, in August 2010. Whole-genome sequencing of MRV was performed using an Ion PGM™ Sequencer. We found that MRV is a single-stranded, negative-sense RNA virus. The complete genome of MRV has 10,744 nt, with short inverted repeat termini, encoding five typical rhabdovirus proteins (N, P, M, G, and L) and an additional small hypothetical protein. Nucleotide BLAST analysis using the BLASTn method showed that the genome sequence most similar to that of MRV is that of Arboretum virus (NC_025393.1), with a Max score of 322, query coverage of 14%, and 66% identity. Genomic and phylogenetic analyses both demonstrated that MRV should be considered a member of a novel species of the family Rhabdoviridae.

    • Authors: Noemi Herrero
      Pages: 1113 - 1117
      Abstract: Abstract A new double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) mycovirus has been identified in the isolate NB IFR-19 of the entomopathogenic fungus Isaria javanica. Isaria javanica chrysovirus-1 (IjCV-1) constitutes a new member of the Chrysoviridae family, and its genome is made up of four dsRNA elements designated dsRNA1, 2, 3 and 4 from largest to smallest. dsRNA1 and dsRNA2 encode an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) and a coat protein (CP), respectively. dsRNA3 and 4 encode hypothetical proteins of unknown function. IjCV-1 constitutes the first report of a chrysovirus infecting the entomopathogenic fungus Isaria javanica.

    • Authors: Pengjun Xu; Xueru Song; Xianming Yang; Zhaoqi Tang; Guangwei Ren; Yanhui Lu
      Pages: 1125 - 1128
      Abstract: Abstract The complete genome sequence of a novel single-stranded RNA virus in Nesidiocoris tenuis was determined by RNA-seq and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) methodologies and was named N. tenuis virus 1. The genomic RNA was 3970 nucleotides (nt) in length and contained two putative open reading frames (ORFs). ORF1 encoded a polypeptide with 283 amino acids containing a viral (superfamily 1) RNA helicase (Hel) domain, and ORF2 encoded a polypeptide with 294 amino acids containing an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRP) domain. Phylogenetic analysis using the deduced amino acid sequences indicated that the N. tenuis virus 1 clustered with Blackford virus; however, the low bootstrap values and unique genomic structure suggested that the virus is a prototype of a new type of unclassified viruses. The prevalence of N. tenuis virus 1 infection in field populations of N. tenuis differed between three locations, with 28.32% of the 113 sampled individuals testing positive for the virus.

      Pages: 1149 - 1152
      Abstract: Abstract Genotype 8 of yellow head virus (YHV-8) was identified recently, but the complete genome sequence of this new genotype has not been reported. In this study, the complete genome of YHV-8 isolate 20120706 collected from Hebei Province of China in 2012 was sequenced. It was found to be 26,769 nucleotides (nt) in length, including a 20,060-nt open reading frame 1 (ORF1), a 435-nt ORF2, and a 4971-nt ORF3. Isolate 20120706 shared 79.7-83.9% nucleotide sequence identity with all seven of the complete genome sequences of YHV that have been reported so far. The topology of a phylogenetic tree constructed based on the ORF1b region clearly showed that strain 20120706, together with five other YHV-8 strains isolated in China, represents a new genotype of YHV. This is the first report of the complete genome sequence of a YHV-8 isolate, and the 20120706 isolate will be useful for further analysis of the epidemiology and evolution of YHV-8.
