Insectivores (or soricomorphs) have been largely ignored as being important in the evolutionary dynamics of hantaviruses, despite the isolation of Thottapalayam virus (TPMV) from the Asian house shrew (Suncus murinus) (1,2) and the detection of hantavirus antigens in tissues of the Eurasian common shrew (Sorex araneus), alpine shrew (S.
Hantavirus antigens have been detected in the Eurasian common shrew (Sorex araneus), alpine shrew (Sorex alpinus), Eurasian water shrew (Neomys fodiens), and common mole (Talpa europea) in Russia and the former Yugoslavia (1-3).
As examples, hantavirus antigens have been previously detected in tissues of the Eurasian common shrew (Sorex araneus), Eurasian water shrew (Neomys fodiens), and common mole (Talpa europea) in the former Soviet Union (35,36), and seroreactivity suggestive of hantavirus infection was found in short-tailed shrew (Blarina brevicauda) in the United States (37).
