OLIVEIRA, Renata Carvalho de et al. Detection of the first incidence of Akodon paranaensis naturally infected with the Jabora virus strain (Hantavirus) in Brazil. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2012, vol.107, n.3, pp. 424-428. ISSN 0074-0276. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0074-02762012000300020.
We characterised hantaviruses circulating in different Akodon rodent species collected in midwestern Santa Catarina (SC), southern Brazil, where the Jabora hantavirus (JABV) strain was first identified in Akodon montensis. Genetic and phylogenetic analyses based on a partial S segment indicated that, in SC, Akodon paranaensis and A. montensis carried the same type of hantavirus. Additionally, we conducted the first genomic characterisation of the complete S segment from the Brazilian JABV strain. This is the first report of A. paranaensis infected with the JABV.
