Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is a calicivirus in the genus Lagovirus causing acute hepatic necrosis in European rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus), leading to disseminated intravascular coagulation and death in [greater than or equal to]90% of susceptible animals (1).
Family Caliviridae includes non-enveloped viruses with single-stranded positive sense RNA classified into 4 genera by the International Committee on the Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) in 2002: Norovirus, Sapovirus, Vesivirus and Lagovirus (5).
The family consists of the genera Vesivirus, Lagovirus, Norovirus, Sapovirus, and Nebovirus as well as unassigned caliciviruses (1,2).
RHD is caused by Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV; genus Lagovirus, family Caliciviridae) (4), a virus with a positive-sense, single-stranded RNA genome of 7.
The family Caliciviridae consists of 5 genera, Norovirus, Sapovirus, Lagovirus, Vesivirus, and Nebovirus, and 3 proposed genera, Recovirus, Valovirus, and chicken calicivirus (8-10).
To the Editor: Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is a calicivirus of the genus Lagovirus that causes epidemics of an acute disease and mortality rates of 50%-90% among rabbits.
They have been classified into 5 genera (Norovirus, Sapovirus, Vesivirus, Lagovirus, and Nebovirus) since 2009 (www.
However, they did not include the publicly available sequences of other nonpathogenic strains, such as Ashington (97% of the capsid viral protein [VP] 60) and the newly identifi ed Lagovirus spp.
RHDV is classified as a Lagovirus within the family Caliciviridae.
The family Caliciviridae contains 4 genera (Sapovirus, Norovirus, Lagovirus, and Vesivirus), which include Sapporo virus, Norwalk virus, Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus, and Feline calicivirus, respectively.
The family Caliciviridae contains 4 genera, Sapovirus, Norovirus, Lagovirus, and Vesivirus, which include sapovirus (SaV), norovirus (NOV), rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus, and feline calicivirus strains, respectively.
The duplication of a conserved sequence at the start of ORF1 and ORF2 is characteristic of caliciviruses and is seen in all 4 genera, NoV, sapovirus, lagovirus, and vesivirus (5,26-28).
