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.
Viral RNA was detected in faeces of the canyon mouse (Peromyscus crinitus) and the European roller (Coriacas garrulus). Phylogenetically these 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
