Tick-borne meningoencephalitis virus

Virus classification
Group: Group IV ((+)ssRNA)
Family: Flaviviridae
Genus: Flavivirus
Species: Tick-borne meningoencephalitis virus

Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) is the virus associated with tick-borne encephalitis.

Taxonomy[edit]

TBEV is a member of the genus Flavivirus. Other close relatives include Omsk hemorrhagic fever virus, Kyasanur forest disease virus, Alkhurma virus, Louping ill virus and the Langat virus.

Subtypes[edit]

TBEV has three subtypes:

  • Western European subtype (formerly Central European encephalitis virus, CEEV; principal tick vector: Ixodes ricinus);
  • Siberian subtype (formerly West Siberian virus; principal tick vector: Ixodes persulcatus);
  • Far Eastern subtype (formerly Russian Spring Summer encephalitis virus, RSSEV; principal tick vector: Ixodes persulcatus).[1]

The reference strain is the Sofjin strain.[2]

Evolution[edit]

The ancestor of the extant strains appears to have separated into several clades approximately 2750 years ago.[3] The Siberian and Far Eastern subtypes diverged about 2250 years ago.

A second analysis suggests an earlier date of evolution (3300 years ago) with a rapid increase in the number of strains starting ~300 years ago.[4]

This virus has been transmitted at least three times into Japan between 260–430 years ago.[5][6]

The strains circulating in Latvia appear to have originated from both Russia and Western Europe[7] while those in Estonia appear to have originated in Russia.[8] The Lithuanian strains appear to be related to those from Western Europe.[9]
