Summary of "Recent progress on porcine circovirus type 3."

Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV3) is a newly identified virus that belongs to the genus Circovirus in the family Circoviridae. Since the first identification of PCV3 in domestic swine in 2016 in the USA, exciting progress on PCV3 has emphasized the importance of the virus. The aim of this review is to present recent advances in the molecular characteristics, epidemiology, and pathogenesis of PCV3. The virus spreads widely throughout almost all tissues of pig and wild boar in various countries, with a gradual increase of the infection. PCV3 is a pathogen associated with porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS)-like clinical signs, reproductive failure, and cardiac and multiorgan inflammation. Furthermore, PCV3 has been detected in other animals and ticks, suggesting that PCV3 possesses cross-species transmission abilities and has an unexpectedly broad distribution and circulation in the wild, where these animals may serve as potential reservoirs for PCV3 and pose a threat to the swine industry or even to humans. Moreover, several detection methods, which can specifically detect PCV3 or differentiate PCV3 from the other viruses, are also reviewed. The present review provides updated knowledge on PCV3-related research. Identification of the prevailing strain of PCV3 and its reservoirs is essential for researchers to understand PCV3 infections and PCV3-related diseases.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A genus of the family CIRCOVIRIDAE that infects SWINE; PSITTACINES; and non-psittacine BIRDS. Species include Beak and feather disease virus causing a fatal disease in psittacine birds, and Porcine circovirus causing postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome in pigs (PORCINE POSTWEANING MULTISYSTEMIC WASTING SYNDROME).

A worldwide emerging disease of weaned piglets first recognized in swine herds in western Canada in 1997. This syndrome is characterized by progressive weight loss, rapid (tachypnea) and difficult (dyspnea) breathing, and yellowing of skin. PMWS is caused by PORCINE CIRCOVIRUS infection, specifically type 2 or PCV-2.

Species of ENTEROVIRUS causing mild to severe neurological diseases among pigs especially in Eastern Europe. Mild strains are also present in Canada, U.S., and Australia. Specific species include Porcine enterovirus A and Porcine enterovirus B.

A mutant strain of TRANSMISSIBLE GASTROENTERITIS VIRUS causing mild or subclinical respiratory infections in young SWINE. It may also play a role in post-weaning porcine respiratory disease complex, especially when combined with other respiratory agents.

A genus in the family PICORNAVIRIDAE that can cause polioencephalomyelitis in pigs. The type species Porcine teschovirus is comprised of multiple strains.
