New Volvovirus Isolates From Acheta Domesticus (Japan) and Gryllus Assimilis (United States)


New Volvovirus Isolates From Acheta Domesticus (Japan) and Gryllus Assimilis (United States)

Hanh T Pham et al. Genome Announc.


A novel circular single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) virus, volvovirus, from the house cricket has been described recently. Here, we report the isolation of volvoviruses from Acheta domesticus in Japan and Gryllus assimilis in the United States. These Acheta domesticus volvovirus (AdVVV) isolates have genomes of 2,517 and 2,516 nucleotides (nt) and 4 large open reading frames (ORFs).
