Disease relevance of Viverridae

  • We also compare S proteins of SARS-CoV isolated during the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak and during the much less severe 2003-2004 outbreak, and from palm civets, a possible source of SARS-CoV found in humans [1].
  • Phylogenetic analysis of the hemagglutinin (H) gene of canine distemper viruses isolated from wild masked palm civets (Paguma larvata) [2].

High impact information on Viverridae

  • It is not restricted by MHC genes, but it is restricted by Igh-linked genets [3].
  • Although molecular studies have helped to clarify the phylogeny of the problematic family Viverridae, a recent phylogenetic investigation based on cytochrome b (cyt b) has excluded the Asiatic linsangs (genus Prionodon) from the family [4].
  • Through examination of wild and captive fossas (Cryptoprocta ferox, Viverridae), androgen assays, and DNA typing for confirmation of gender, we made the first discovery of transient masculinization of a female mammal [5].
  • The FIS value over all loci for the small genets was positive and deviated significantly from zero, while the corresponding value for the large genets was close to zero [6].
  • However, the foraging intensity of the neighbouring genets, as measured by fractal dimension (D), was unaffected by the proximity of a neighbour [7].

Associations of Viverridae with chemical compounds


Gene context of Viverridae

  • The primary structure of the alpha- and beta-chains of hemoglobin from the Masked Palm Civet (Paguma larvata, Viverridae) is described [10].
  • Hemagglutinin (H) gene of two CDV isolates, the Haku93 and Haku00 strains, from masked palm civets was molecularly analyzed [2].
