Epidemiological profile and clinical associations of human bocavirus and other human parvoviruses
Identification of novel porcine and bovine parvoviruses closely related to human parvovirus 4.
Widespread infection with homologues of human parvoviruses B19, PARV4, and human bocavirus of chimpanzees and gorillas in the wild.
To determine the relationship between GFADV and AMDV strains, phylogenetic analyses of the NS1 and VP2 proteins were performed, which showed that in both genome regions GFADV was more closely related to AMDV strains than to those of minute virus of mice or other parvoviruses
analyzed (data not shown), but was distinct from the 3 AMDV groups (Figure 2).
Hypotheses such as possible arthropod-borne or parasite-associated transmission require careful evaluation, bearing in mind that parvoviruses
, in common with other DNA viruses, are highly host species specific, and no other instances of vector-borne transmission in this virus family have been recorded.
His work focuses on the molecular biology of parvoviruses
Manning A, Willey SJ, Bell JE, Simmonds E Comparison of tissue distribution, persistence and molecular epidemiology of parvovirus B19 and novel human parvoviruses PARV4 and human bocavirus.
Analysis of 417 patients tested for parvoviruses 4/5 by PCR * No.
Given the resistance of parvoviruses
to viral inactivation procedures, recipients of a wide range of plasma-derived therapeutics may also be at risk for PARV4 infection.
To the Editor: Parvoviruses
are small, nonenveloped DNA viruses that infect both vertebrate and invertebrate hosts.
In addition, HBoV, similar to some adenoviruses (14) and other human parvoviruses
, may show persistent shedding after an initial acute infection.
