Length of genome (Phan et al., 2011, Reuter et al., 2014): c. 8,385 nt (5'-UTR: >646 nt; ORF: 7,653 nt; 3' UTR: 86 nt). The location of the cre has not been identified.
The deduced polyprotein has a length of 2,551 aa. There is a L protein which may be a protease. 2A is an aphthovirus-like polypeptide with NPG¯P motif. The genome is predicted to encode a second 3B (VPg) protein. The 3Cpro has a deviant GxCGx10-15AxH motif.
See discussion under family description.
Viral RNA was detected in faeces of the canyon mouse (Peromyscus crinitus) and the European roller (Coriacas garrulus). Phylogenetically these viruses fall into two distinct types.
Members of a species of the genus Mosavirus:
The divergence (number of differences per site between sequences) of known Mosavirus species ranges from 0.6-0.61 for P1 and 0.58-0.6 for 3CD.
Two genetic types have been classified by means of phylogenetic clustering.
Mosa: from mouse stool-associated
