Virus has not yet been isolated.
Length of genome (Li et al., 2009, Greninger et al., 2009, Holtz et al., 2009): 7,982-8,021 nt (5'-UTR: 709-763 nt; ORF: 7,110-7,125 nt; 3' UTR: 148 nt). The location of the cre has not been identified.
The deduced polyprotein has a length of 2,374 amino acids. There is a L protein with unknown function. 1AB remains uncleaved. 2A protein has no H-box/NC sequence motif.
Viral RNA was detected in faeces of humans with gastroenteritis and non-polio AFP and of chimpanzees.
Within the single species Salivirus A, two genetic types are distinguished (Yu et al., 2015, Aldabbagh et al., 2015, Ng et al., 2012).
Sali-: from stool aichi-like
These viruses have also been named klassevirus for kobu-like viruses associated with stool and sewage (Greninger et al., 2009).
