Human coronaviruses part 50

  Bats are likely natural reservoirs of MERS-CoV or an ancestral MERS-like CoV. It is hypothesized that bat MERS-like CoV jumped to camels or some other as yet unidentified animal several decades ago. The virus evolved and adapted with accumulating  … Continue reading

Human coronaviruses part 49

  Bats harbor coronaviruses  with great genetic diversity. It is believed that most, if not all, currently circulating alphacoronaviruses and betacoronaviruses in different mammals are evolutionally linked to ancestral coronaviruses  originated from bats. Different species of rhinolophid bats  in China … Continue reading

  HCoV-NL63  was first isolated from babies suffering of pneumonia and bronchiolitis in 2004. HCoV-NL63 has been found worldwide with up to 9.3% detection rate in hospitalized respiratory tract samples. In 2010, a bat coronavirus termed ARCoV.2(Appalachian Ridge CoV) detected … Continue reading

  A recent study characterized more 229-E related coronaviruses  discovered in hipposiderid bats from Ghana on full genome level. These bat coronaviruses were more diverdiversified  and formed a single viral species with HCoV-229E. Interestingly, phylogenetic analysis revealed the intermediate position … Continue reading

  Bat coronaviruses and human coronavirus 229E(HCoV-229E) and NL63(HCoV-NL63) HCoV-229 was found in the 1960s and causes comparatively mild common colds worldwide. A bat coronavirus detected in Hipposideros caffer ruber in genetically related to HCoV-229E. Its RdRp fragment shared 92% … Continue reading

  It is difficult to adopt the same strategy of SARS-CoV control in the prevention of future MERS-CoV outbreaks. Until a comprehensive approach is found, which most likely will involve the effective vaccination of camels against MERS-CoV among other measures, … Continue reading
