Length of genome (Wu et al., 2012, Kemenesi et al., 2015): c. 8,457 nt (5'-UTR: 1,407 nt; ORF: 6,846 nt; 3'-UTR: 204 nt). 5' UTR is exceptionally long. The location of the cre has not been identified.
The deduced polyprotein has a length of 2,282 aa. There is likely a L protein. 2A is a short FMDV-like polypeptide with NPG¯P motif.
The natural host is likely the common bent-wing bat (Miniopterus schreibersii) and the groundleaf giant bat (Hipposideros gigas). Viral RNA was detected in pharyngeal and anal swabs of apparently healthy bats.
Members of a species of the genus Mischivirus share a common genome organization.
The divergence (number of differences per site between sequences) of known Mischivirus species ranges from 0.27-0.57 for P1 and 0.2-0.45 for 3CD.
Mischi-: Miniopterus schreibersii (common bent-wing bat)
