In Argentina, five genotypes are associated with human disease: Oran (ORN) and Bermejo (BMJ) viruses in northwestern Salta province, Lechiguanas (LEC) and HU 39694 viruses in central Buenos Aires and Santa Fe provinces, and Andes (AND) virus in southwestern Rio Negro province (Enria and Levis, 2004).
The JUQ-like clade is sister to a clade formed by Hu39694, Neembucu, Bermejo, Andes Central Plata, Lechiguanas, and Oran; however, this relationship is weakly supported.
Six pathogenic Andes virus (ANDV) lineages that cause HPS have so far been found to circulate in Argentina in 3 HPS-endemic areas: Oran and Bermejo (BMJ) in the north; Lechiguanas (LEC), Hu39694, and AND Cent (Central) Plata in the central provinces; and ANDV in the South (4-7).
A 303-nt fragment of the G2 gene was amplified and sequenced (bases corresponding to position 2807 to 3109 of Lechiguanas [LEC] virus).
Several distinct hantaviruses have been associated with HPS, including Andes virus (Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Uruguay), Bermejo virus (Bolivia), Juquitiba virus (Brazil), Laguna Negra virus (Bolivia, Paraguay), Lechiguanas virus (Argentina), and Oran virus (Argentina) (22,23,25,28,30,31).
