    Abstract : Ljungan virus (LV) is a recently identified picornavirus of the genus Parechovirus. LV has been isolated from voles trapped in Sweden and also in the United States. LV infected small rodents may suffer from diabetes type 1 and type 2 like symptoms, myocarditis and encephalitis. READ MORE

    Abstract : The process of β-cell destruction that leads to type 1 diabetes (T1D) is incompletely understood and it is believed to be a result of both genetic and environmental factors. Enterovirus (EV) infections of the β-cells have been proposed to be involved, however, the effects of EV infections on human β-cells have been little investigated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cellular receptors for viruses with ocular tropism

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Emma C Nilsson; Niklas Arnberg; Eric J Kremer; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adenovirus; picornavirus; receptors; antivirals; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Microbiology Virology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Mikrobiologi Virologi; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Several viruses from different virus families are known to cause ocular infections, e.g. members of the Adenoviridae, Picornaviridae and the Herpesviridae families. These infections are spread by contact and in the case of adenoviruses (Ads) and picornaviruses they are also highly contagious. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reverse genetic studies of Enterovirus replication

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Anna Sävneby; A. Michael Lindberg; Björn Andersson; Peter Gierow; Jonas Waldenström; Martin Ryan; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Enterovirus; picornavirus; coxsackievirus; echovirus; rhinovirus; reverse genetics; replication; translation; transfection; cassette vector.; Virology; Virologi;

    Abstract : Enteroviruses belong to the Picornaviridae family and are small icosahedral viruses with RNA genomes of positive polarity, containing a single open reading frame. They mostly cause mild or asymptomatic infections, but also a wide array of diseases including: poliomyelitis, encephalitis, gastroenteritis, aseptic meningitis, myocarditis, hand-foot-and-mouth disease, hepatitis and respiratory diseases, ranging from severe infections to the common cold.
