Phylogenetic Analysis of Lednice Orthobunyavirus

Microorganisms. 2019 Oct 13;7(10):447. doi: 10.3390/microorganisms7100447.


Lednice virus (LEDV) has been detected in Culex modestus mosquitoes in several European countries within the last six decades. In this study, phylogenetic analyses of the complete genome segments confirm that LEDV belongs to the Turlock orthobunyavirus (Orthobunyavirus, Peribunyaviridae) species and is closely related to Umbre, Turlock, and Kedah viruses.

Keywords: Lednice virus; Orthobunyavirus; genome; phylogeny.
