For the RT-PCR screening of CNS samples for the presence of pestiviruses (Flaviviridae) and swine picornaviruses (Picornaviridae), including teschovirus, enterovirus, sapelovirus, Seneca Valley virus, pasivirus, kobuvirus and encephalomyocarditis, we used virus-specific primer pairs as well as the outer and inner primer pairs targeting the RdRp or the capsid regions of PoAstV-3 (Figure 1; online Technical Appendix Tables 1, 2).
There are nine genera of picornaviruses: Enterovirus (poliovirus, swine vesicular disease, coxsackievirus (which causes hand-foot-and-mouth disease in humans), and enterovirus A), Rhinovirus (human and bovine rhinoviruses), Hepatovirus (hepatitis A virus), Aphthovirus (foot-and-mouth disease virus in cattle), Cardiovirus (encephalomyocarditis virus in mice), Erbovirus (equine rhinitis B virus), Kobuvirus (Aichi kobuvirus), Teschovirus (porcine teschovirus), and Parechovirus (human parechovirus, which was formerly known as Echovirus 22 and 23).
The following viruses were not detected in CNS samples by PCR: porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus types 1 and 2, porcine circovirus 2, suid alphaherpesvirus 1, teschovirus A, sapelovirus A, or atypical porcine pestivirus.
Molecular assays were conducted to identify viruses that might be associated with the reported clinical signs; these included SVA (3); FMDV, vesicular stomatitis virus, and SVDV (6); teschovirus A, sapelovirus A, and enterovirus G (7); porcine parvovirus (8); and porcine circovirus type 2 (9).
Results from screening for typical neurotropic viruses (classical swine fever virus, suid herpesvirus 1, rabies virus, teschovirus, porcine enterovirus 8, 9, and 10) were negative; Mycoplasma hyorhinis was detected by multiplex PCR (Institute of Virology, University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover) within the lung and pulmonary lymph nodes.
Picornaviruses (family Picornaviridae) are small, non-enveloped viruses with single-stranded, positive-sense genomic RNA; they are divided into 12 genera: Aphthovirus, Avihepatovirus, Cardiovirus, Enterovirus, Erbovirus, Hepatovirus, Parechovirus, Sapelovirus, Senecavirus, Teschovirus, Tremovirus, and Kobuvirus (1).
Picornaviruses are currently divided into 8 genera: Enterovirus, Aphthovirus, Cardiovirus, Hepatovirus, Parechovirus, Erbovirus, Teschovirus, and Kobuvirus (1).
To the Editor: The picornaviruses constitute a large, diverse family of positive-sense RNA viruses, which comprise 8 genera: Enterovirus, Aphthovirus, Cardiovirus, Hepatovirus, Parechovirus, Erbovirus, Kobuvirus, and Teschovirus (1).

The family Picornaviridae contains 9 genera: Enterovirus, Hepatovirus, Rhinovirus, Kobuvirus, and Parechovirus infect humans, whereas Aphtovirus, Erbovirus, Teschovirus, and Cardiovirus are animal pathogens (1).
