Length of genome (Boros et al., 2013): c. 7,272 nt (5'-UTR: 500 nt; ORF: 6,747 nt; 3'-UTR: 25 nt). 5' UTR contains a type IV-B IRES. The 3' UTR is the shortest of picornaviruses, at 25 nt. The location of the cre has not been identified.
The deduced polyprotein has a length of 2,248 amino acids. There is no L protein. 1AB remains uncleaved. 2A1 is a short FMDA-like polypeptide (NPG¯P), 2A2 protein has unknown function.
Viral RNA was detected in faeces of an apparently healthy European roller (Coracias garrulus).
Members of a species of the genus Kunsagivirus share a common genome organization.
The divergence (number of differences per site between sequences) of known Kunsagivirus species accounts for 0.51 for P1 and 0.52 for 3CD.
Kunsagi: from the name of part of the Great Hungarian Plain – "Kunság" – where the samples were collected
