Descriptions

LP21133-1   Semliki Forest virus
Semliki Forest virus (SFV) is a positive-stranded RNA virus that was isolated in 1944 in Uganda [PMID:10501479]. SFV belongs to the family Togaviridae, genus Alphavirus [NCBI Taxonomy:11033]. Alphaviruses are mosquito-transmitted RNA viruses producing acute symptoms including mild febrile illness, rash, arthralgia, myalgia and encephalitis [PMID:29783708]. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP21133-1   Semliki Forest virus
The Semliki Forest virus was first isolated from mosquitoes in the Semliki Forest, Uganda by the Uganda Virus Research Institute in 1942 and described by Smithburn & Haddow. It is known to cause disease in both animals and man. It is an Alphavirus found in central, eastern, and southern Africa. The Semliki Forest virus is a positive-stranded RNA virus with a genome of approximately 13,000 base pairs which encodes nine proteins. Semliki Forest virus is spread mainly by mosquito bites. It is not able to infect mammals through inhalation or gastrointestinal exposure, although rodents in the laboratory can be infected by intranasal instillation. The virus is able to cause a lethal encephalitis in rodents, but generally only mild symptoms in humans. Semliki Forest virus has been used extensively in biological research as a model of the viral life cycle and of viral neuropathy. Due to its broad host range and efficient replication, it has also been developed as a vector for genes encoding vaccines and anti-cancer agents, and as a tool in gene therapy.
