Rhabdoviruses are medium-sized, enveloped, single-stranded, negative sense RNA viruses.
Five major and 3 minor open reading frames (ORFs) were identified that had a genome organization similar to that of other rhabdoviruses (Figure, panel A).
However, intergenic regions between all major ORFs contained relatively conserved motifs that could be transcription termination/polyadenylation sequences (A/U) CU7, similar to other rhabdoviruses (5).
The deduced amino acid sequence of genes of DRV and several other rhabdoviruses were aligned by using MUSCLE in MEGA5 version 5.
These studies have revealed a variety of viruses but no new rhabdoviruses.
On the basis of this diversity and on the serologic cross-reactivity of MOKV with African non-lyssa rhabdoviruses, it has been hypothesized that Africa is the continent of the origin and initial evolution of members of the genus Lyssavirus (5).
The performance of the GreeneChip system was initially tested in GreeneChipVr hybridizations that used extracts of cultured cells infected with adenoviruses, alphaviruses, arenaviruses, coronaviruses, enteroviruses, filoviruses, flaviviruses, herpesviruses, orthomyxoviruses, paramyxoviruses, poxviruses, reoviruses, and rhabdoviruses (49 viruses).
Two novel rhabdoviruses were isolated from birds during surveillance for arboviral encephalitis in the northeastern United States.
Viruses from positive cultures were typed by using serogroup-specific polyclonal antisera for bunyaviruses (California and Bunyamwera serogroups), flaviviruses, alphaviruses, and rhabdoviruses (Hart Park serogroup).
This cell line has also proven to be a versatile host for Bunyaviridae, including Bunyaviruses, [Alpha]-viruses, flaviviruses, and rhabdoviruses (28).
