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).
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.
Compared with species in other orders, species in the order Chiroptera had a lower probability of visible disease (Figure 2), although all Chiroptera species infected with nonrabies rhabdoviruses had a high probability of visible disease.
Further phylogenetic analysis of representatives from other rhabdoviruses demonstrated that IKOV is a member of the Lyssavirus genus (41.
His research on rhabdoviruses and arenaviruses led to his first 7 scholarly publications, including contributions to our knowledge of the pathology of Lassa fever, an archetypal emerging infectious disease.
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).
