These 2 viruses are associated with severe respiratory and neurologic syndromes, and regular spillover from Pteropus
Has three subtypes: Pteropus
Giganteous (Indian Flying Fox), Rousettus Leschenaulti (Fulvous Fruit Bat) and Cynopterus Sphinx (Greater Short- Nosed Fruit Bat).
Limin 2007 Intensive hunting of large flying foxes Pteropus
vampyrus natunae in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.
SEM study on the dorsal lingual surface of the large flying fox, Pteropus
bats (fruit bats) are mainly thought as the reservoir for this virus.
This time the culprit is a fruit bat called a flying fox, Pteropus
tokudae, which was eaten by Chamorros for special occasions until the populations of these animals diminished sharply in the 1960s, which could explain the freedom from the disease among younger people.
DAMASCUS, (SANA)-Bats of the genus Pteropus
, belonging to the Megachiroptera sub-order, are the largest bats in the world.
Scientists tested 100 giant fruit bats, Pteropus
giganteus, in the Faridpur region of the country.
Now, using cutting-edge molecular techniques, an international team of investigators has identified a GB-virus in Pteropus
giganteus bats in Bangladesh.
