Whole-genome sequencing of a green bush viper reovirus reveals a shared evolutionary history between reptilian and unusual mammalian orthoreoviruses


Bányai, K; Borzák, R; Ihász, K; Fehér, E; Dán, A; Jakab, F; Papp, T; Hetzel, U; Marschang, R E; Farkas, S L (2014). Whole-genome sequencing of a green bush viper reovirus reveals a shared evolutionary history between reptilian and unusual mammalian orthoreoviruses. Archives of Virology, 159(1):153-158.

Abstract

In this study, we sequenced the whole genome of a reovirus isolated from a green bush viper (Atheris squamigera). The bush viper reovirus shared several features with other orthoreoviruses, including its genome organization. In phylogenetic analysis, this strain was monophyletic with Broome virus and baboon orthoreovirus, indicating that these viruses might have originated from a common ancestor. These new molecular data supplement previous information based mainly on biological properties of reptilian reoviruses, confirming their taxonomic position and broadening our knowledge of the evolution of members of the genus Orthoreovirus.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
