Abstract

The relationship of a Hantaan-like virus (HV114), isolated from a patient with haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome in Hubei Province, People’s Republic of China, to other pathogenic hantaviruses was evaluated by cross-neutralization studies and nucleotide sequence analysis of the M genome segment. Plaque reduction neutralization assays indicated that HV114 is closely related to prototype Hantaan (HTN) virus, strain 76-118, which was originally isolated from an field mouse in Korea. Comparison of the M genome segments of HTN 76-118 and HV114 revealed sequence identity of 84·7% and 95·4% for nucleotides and deduced amino acids, respectively. These data demonstrate that HV114 and 76-118 are two closely related but different isolates of HTN virus, establishing the scientific basis for testing and future use in China of a recombinant vaccine expressing the genome of HTN virus strain 76-118.
