Characterization of mitochondrial genome of Haemagogus janthinomys (Diptera: Culicidae)
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
Haemagogus janthinomys is a mosquito of high importance in public health due its involvement on natural wild cycles of two important arboviruses in the Brazilian Amazon region: Yellow Fever virus (Flaviviridae, Flavivirus) ...
Genomic characterization and evolution of Tacaiuma orthobunyavirus (Peribunyaviridae family) isolated in Brazil
Tacaiuma virus (TCMV) is antigenically characterized as a member of the Anopheles A complex in the Orthobunyavirus genus, Peribunyaviridae family (Bunyavirales order). Clinically, the TCMV infection is characterized by ...
Genomic characterization of orthobunyavirus of veterinary importance in America
During 2013, in Argentina, three new isolates of serogroup Bunyamwera virus (genus Orthobunyavirus, family Peribunyaviridae) were recovered from two horses with encephalitis, and from an aborted equine fetus. In the present ...
Emergence of new insect-restrictive viruses in the Amazon Region
(American Society for Microbiology, 2015)
The complete genome was determined for 12 viruses isolated from 8 different pools of mosquitoes (Culex sp. and Psorophora ferox) collected at Brejeira farm, Canaan dos Carajas, Para state in northern Brazil. Eight of the ...
Characterization of Triniti virus supports its reclassification in the family Peribunyaviridae
(Microbiology Society, 2019)
Triniti virus (TNTV) has been isolated in Trinidad and Tobago and in Brazil. To date little is known about this virus, which is classified as an ungrouped virus within the family Togaviridae. Here, three isolates of TNTV ...
Genomic and phylogenetic characterization of brazilian yellow fever virus strains
(American Society for Microbiology, 2012)
Globally, yellow fever virus infects nearly 200,000 people, leading to 30,000 deaths annually. Although the virus is endemic to Latin America, only a single genome from this region has been sequenced. Here, we report 12 ...
New genome sequences of Gamboa Viruses (Family Bunyaviridae, Genus Orthobunyavirus) isolated in Panama and Argentina
(American Society for Microbiology, 2014)
We describe here the nearly complete open reading frame (ORF) of five Gamboa virus strains isolated in Panama and Argentina. The viruses with complete ORF showed the regular genome organization observed in other orthobunyaviruses ...
Revalidation and genetic characterization of new members of Group C (Orthobunyavirus genus, Peribunyaviridae family) isolated in the Americas
(Public Library of Science, 2018)
Group C serogroup includes members of the Orthobunyavirus genus (family Peribunyaviridae) and comprises 15 arboviruses that can be associated with febrile illness in humans. Although previous studies described the genome ...
