Variegated squirrel bornavirus (VSBV-1; family Bornaviridae, species Mammalian 2 orthobornavirus) is a new zoonotic virus that causes severe and eventually fatal encephalitis in humans.
Avian bornaviruses, recently described members of the family Bornaviridae, have been isolated from captive parrots and passerine birds as well as wild waterfowl in which they may cause lethal, neurologic disease.
(57) A ribonucleic acid (RNA) virus from the family Bornaviridae, it is a neurotropic virus with an affinity to a variety of hosts, particularly hoofed animals, and can cause persistent infection of the CNS.
The order includes four families: Bornaviridae, Rhabdoviridae, Filoviridae, and Paramyxoviridae.
The phylogeny identified clusters corresponding to the known families within the order: Rhabdoviridae, Paramyxoviridae, Filoviridae, and Bornaviridae. A cluster including the genus Ebolavirus was found to be basal.
Phylogenetic analysis of complete coding sequences from variegated squirrel bornavirus 1 (VSBV-1) and other members of Bornaviridae. The phylogenetic trees were inferred by using the Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo method and in parallel a maximum-likelihood method (tree not shown).
The order Mononegavirales contains viral species that have a RNA genome and include the four families Bornaviridae, Rhabdoviridae, Filoviridae, and Paramyxoviridae.
The family Bornaviridae comprises the classical mammalian bornaviruses (Mammalian 1 bornavirus with borna disease virus; BoDV-1 and -2); avian bornaviruses (Passeriform 1/2 bornavirus, Psittaciform 1/2 bornavirus, Waterbird 1 bornavirus); and a recently described Elapid 1 bornavirus from snakes (Loveridge's garter snake virus 1) (1).
