The Simbu serogroup (family Bunyaviridae, genus Bunyavirus) includes Shamonda virus, Akabane virus, Sathuperi virus, and Aino virus
The incidence of antibody to Aino virus
in animals and humans in Fukuoka.
The first report of SBV showed highest similarities of M- and L-segment sequences to partial Aino virus
and AKAV sequences, whereas the N gene was most closely related to Shamonda virus (SHAV) (1).
It is a RNA virus and shows 97% identity with Shamonda virus (SFIAV) (small gene segment), 71% identity with Aino virus
(medium gene segment), and 69% identity with Akabane virus (AKAV) (large gene segment) (4).
AB183278; 97% identity) (2), an Aino virus
discovered in cattle in Japan (M segment; accession no.
The dictionary covers a wider range of terms than parasitology; some virology terms, such as Aino virus
, are included, as are some far afield terms, including hundredweight, hydrogen half-cell, and zwitterions.
