Complete sequence determination and genetic analysis of Banna virus and Kadipiro virus: proposal for assignment to a new genus (Seadornavirus) within the family Reoviridae. (1/11)

Arboviruses with genomes composed of 12 segments of double-stranded (ds) RNA have previously been classified as members or probable members of the genus Coltivirus within the family REOVIRIDAE: A number of these viruses have been isolated in North America and Europe and are serologically and genetically related to Colorado tick fever virus, the Coltivirus type species. These isolates constitute subgroup A of the coltiviruses. The complete genome sequences are now presented of two Asian arboviruses, Kadipiro virus (KDV) and Banna virus (BAV), which are currently classified as subgroup B coltiviruses. Analysis of the viral protein sequences shows that all of the BAV genome segments have cognate genes in KDV. The functions of several of these proteins were also indicated by this analysis. Proteins with dsRNA-binding domains or with significant similarities to polymerases, methyltransferases, NTPases or protein kinases were identified. Comparisons of amino acid sequences of the conserved polymerase protein have shown that BAV and KDV are only very distantly related to the subgroup A coltiviruses. These data demonstrate a requirement for the subgroup B viruses to be reassigned to a separate new genus, for which the name Seadornavirus is proposed.  (+info)

A reovirus of the fungus Cryphonectria parasitica that is infectious as particles and related to the coltivirus genus of animal pathogens. (2/11)

RNA viruses of filamentous fungi fall into two broad categories, those that contain double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) genomes in rigid particles and those that are more closely related to positive-sense, single-stranded RNA viruses with dsRNA replicative intermediates found within lipid vesicles. Effective infectivity systems have been described for the latter, using RNA transcripts, but not for the former. We report the characterization of a reovirus from Cryphonectria parasitica, the filamentous fungus that causes chestnut blight disease. The virus substantially reduces the virulence of the fungus and results in dramatically altered colony morphology, as well as changes in other associated fungal traits, relative to the virus-free isogenic strain. Virus particles from infected mycelium contained 11 segments of dsRNA and showed characteristics typical of the family Reoviridae. Sequences of the largest three segments revealed that the virus is closely related to the Coltivirus genus of animal pathogens, which includes the human pathogen Colorado tick fever virus. The introduction of purified virus particles into protoplasts from virus-free isolates of the fungus resulted in a newly infected mycelium with the same morphology and virus composition as the original virus-infected isolate. This represents the completion of Koch's postulates for a true dsRNA virus from a filamentous fungus and the description of a definitive fungal member of the family Reoviridae.  (+info)

The structure and function of the outer coat protein VP9 of Banna virus. (3/11)

Banna virus (BAV: genus Seadornavirus, family Reoviridae) has a double-shelled morphology similar to rotavirus and bluetongue virus. The structure of BAV outer-capsid protein VP9 was determined by X-ray crystallography at 2.6 A resolution, revealing a trimeric molecule, held together by an N-terminal helical bundle, reminiscent of coiled-coil structures found in fusion-active proteins such as HIV gp41. The major domain of VP9 contains stacked beta sheets with marked structural similarities to the receptor binding protein VP8 of rotavirus. Anti-VP9 antibodies neutralize viral infectivity, and, remarkably, pretreatment of cells with trimeric VP9 increased viral infectivity, indicating that VP9 is involved in virus attachment to cell surface and subsequent internalization. Sequence similarities were also detected between BAV VP10 and VP5 portion of rotavirus VP4, suggesting that the receptor binding and internalization apparatus, which is a single gene product activated by proteoloysis in rotavirus, is the product of two separate genome segments in BAV.  (+info)

Identification and functional analysis of VP3, the guanylyltransferase of Banna virus (genus Seadornavirus, family Reoviridae). (4/11)

Banna virus (BAV) particles contain seven structural proteins: VP4 and VP9 form an outer-capsid layer, whilst the virus core contains three major proteins (VP2, VP8 and VP10) and two minor proteins (VP1 and VP3). Sequence analysis showed that VP3 contains motifs [Kx(I/V/L)S] and (Hx(n)H) that have previously been identified in the guanylyltransferases of other reoviruses. Incubation of purified BAV-Ch core particles with [alpha-32P]GTP resulted in exclusive covalent labelling of VP3, demonstrating autoguanylation activity (which is considered indicative of guanylyltransferase activity). Recombinant VP3 prepared in a cell-free expression system was also guanylated under similar reaction conditions, and products were synthesized (in the presence of non-radiolabelled GDP) that co-migrated with GMP, GDP and GpppG during TLC. This reaction, which required magnesium ions for optimum activity, demonstrates that VP3 possesses nucleoside triphosphatase (GTPase) activity and is the BAV guanylyltransferase (RNA 'capping' enzyme).  (+info)

Structural organization of an encephalitic human isolate of Banna virus (genus Seadornavirus, family Reoviridae). (5/11)

Banna virus (BAV) is the type species of the genus Seadornavirus within the family Reoviridae. The Chinese BAV isolate (BAV-Ch), which causes encephalitis in humans, was shown to have a structural organization and particle morphology reminiscent of that of rotaviruses, with fibre proteins projecting from the surface of the particle. Intact BAV-Ch virus particles contain seven structural proteins, two of which (VP4 and VP9) form the outer coat. The inner (core) particles contain five additional proteins (VP1, VP2, VP3, VP8 and VP10) and are 'non-turreted', with a relatively smooth surface appearance. VP2 is the 'T = 2' protein that forms the innermost 'subcore' layer, whilst VP8 is the 'T = 13' protein forming the core-surface layer. Sequence comparisons indicate that BAV VP9 and VP10 are equivalent to the VP8* and VP5* domains, respectively, of rotavirus outer-coat protein VP4 (GenBank accession no. P12976). VP9 has also been shown to be responsible for virus attachment to the host-cell surface and may be involved in internalization. These similarities reveal a previously unreported genetic link between the genera Rotavirus and Seadornavirus, although the expression of BAV VP9 and VP10 from two separate genome segments, rather than by the proteolytic cleavage of a single gene product (as seen in rotavirus VP4), suggests a significant evolutionary jump between the members of these two genera.  (+info)

Studies of coltivirus in China. (6/11)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to review the developments of studies of Coltivirus in China. DATA SOURCES: The data used in this review was obtained mainly from the studies of Coltivirus reported from 1990 to 2003 in China. STUDY SELECTION: Relevant articles on studies of Coltivirus in domestic and foreign literature were selected. DATA EXTRACTION: Data were maily extracted from the articles which are listed in the reference section of this review. RESULTS: Many Coltiviruses have been isolated not only from blood samples of patients with unknown fever or from cerebrospinal fluid of patients with encephalitis in Xishuangbanna area in Yunnan province, but also from mosquitoes collected in many areas in China. In some patients diagnosed as Japanese encephalitis or unknown fever, an increase of Coltivirus IgG antibody of fourfold, or more, has been detected using ELISA. Similarly, Coltivirus IgM antibody was positive in some patients with Japanese encephalitis or viral encephalitis. From most Chinese patients, except the northeastern, the isolates of Coltiviruses belong to subgroup B2, according to RT-PCR amplification of the ninth and twelfth segments of the isolates and sequence analysis of their amplicons. Some biological properties of Chinese Coltiviruses isolates are different from that of North American Coltiviruses. CONCLUSIONS: The isolates of Coltiviruses from Chinese patients are one of the common agents causing viral encephalitis and unknown fever in summer-autumn season. It might be an important public health problem due to its high isolation rate and wide distribution in China. Mosquito is the main transmission vector of the virus.  (+info)

Coltiviruses and seadornaviruses in North America, Europe, and Asia. (7/11)

Coltiviruses are tickborne viruses of the genus Coltivirus. The type species, Colorado tick fever virus (from North America), has been isolated from patients with flulike syndromes, meningitis, encephalitis, and other severe complications. Another coltivirus, Eyach virus, has been isolated from ticks in France and Germany and incriminated in febrile illnesses and neurologic syndromes. Seadornaviruses are endemic in Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia and China. The prototype virus of the genus, Banna virus (BAV), has been isolated from many mosquito species, humans with encephalitis, pigs, and cattle. Two other seadornaviruses, Kadipiro and Liao Ning, were isolated only from mosquitoes. The epidemiology of seadornaviruses remains poorly documented. Evidence suggests that BAV is responsible for encephalitis in humans. Infection with BAV may be underreported because it circulates in regions with a high incidence of Japanese encephalitis and could be misdiagnosed as this disease.  (+info)

Complete characterisation of the American grass carp reovirus genome (genus Aquareovirus: family Reoviridae) reveals an evolutionary link between aquareoviruses and coltiviruses. (8/11)

 (+info)

Coltivirus is a genus of viruses in the Reoviridae family, which are double-stranded RNA viruses. Coltiviruses are known to infect and cause disease in humans and animals, particularly rodents. The name "coltivirus" comes from "COLumbia-TIbet" viruses, as the first two isolates of this genus were found in ticks in these locations.

The most well-known coltivirus is Colorado tick fever virus (CTFV), which is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected ticks, primarily the Rocky Mountain wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni). CTFV infection can cause a flu-like illness with symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and fatigue. In some cases, more severe complications like meningitis or encephalitis may occur, although this is rare.

Prevention of coltivirus infections primarily involves avoiding tick bites through the use of insect repellents, wearing protective clothing, and checking for and removing ticks promptly after being outdoors in areas where infected ticks are known to be present. There are currently no specific antiviral treatments available for coltivirus infections, and treatment is generally supportive, focusing on relieving symptoms and managing complications as they arise.

Colorado tick fever is a viral infection that is transmitted through the bite of an infected Rocky Mountain wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni). The disease is named after the state where it was first identified, but it can also occur in other states including Montana, Wyoming, Utah, California, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

The virus that causes Colorado tick fever belongs to the family Reoviridae and is a bunyavirus. The symptoms of the disease typically appear within 3-6 days after the tick bite and may include sudden onset of fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, fatigue, and sore throat. Some people may also experience a rash, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and sensitivity to light.

The diagnosis of Colorado tick fever is usually based on the patient's clinical symptoms, history of tick exposure, and laboratory tests that can detect the virus in the blood. There is no specific treatment for the disease, and most people recover within a few days to a week with rest and supportive care. However, severe cases may require hospitalization and close monitoring.

Preventive measures include avoiding tick-infested areas, using insect repellent, wearing protective clothing, and checking for ticks after being outdoors. If a tick is found, it should be removed promptly using tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible and pulling it straight out with steady pressure.

Colorado tick fever (CTF) is a viral disease transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected Rocky Mountain wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni). The causative agent of Colorado tick fever is a Coltivirus, named Colorado tick fever virus (CTFV). The disease is most commonly found in the western United States and Canada, particularly in mountainous regions between 4,000 to 10,000 feet elevation.

The symptoms of Colorado tick fever typically appear within 3-5 days after a tick bite and may include:

* Sudden onset of fever
* Chills
* Severe headache
* Muscle pain
* Fatigue
* Rash (occurs in about 10% to 50% of cases)
* Conjunctival infection (redness and swelling of the membrane lining the eyelids)
* Sensitivity to light

In some cases, more severe complications such as neurological symptoms or hemorrhagic manifestations may occur. However, these are rare.

There is no specific treatment for Colorado tick fever other than supportive care, which includes rest, hydration, and medication to relieve symptoms like fever and pain. Most people with CTF recover completely within a few weeks. Prevention measures include using insect repellent, wearing protective clothing, and checking for ticks after spending time outdoors in tick-infested areas.
