The genome comparison of SARS-CoV and other coronaviruses



The genome comparison of SARS-CoV and other coronaviruses



Yi Chuan 25(4): 373-382



The genome comparison of inter-species and intra-species can give us much information about the origin and evolution of viruses. There are 137 mutation sites in the 17 genomes of SARS-CoV,and the mutation rate is about 8.04 x 10(-3) substitution/site/year. The distribution of the segregating sites is not steady,the most variable region appears in S1 protein,and the nucleotide sequence of RNA-dependent RNA polymerase has very few mutation sites. The substitution bias of nucleotide acids and amino acids indicates the non-random drift products. The comparison of genome structures of SARS-CoV and other coronaviruses shows that SARS-CoV and IBV share the same genome structure. Phylogenetic analyses of conserved genes of coronaviruses indicate that SARS-CoV is a new branch of coronaviruses and appears more close to the group II coronaviruses. Interestingly,SARS-CoV shares some different features with different groups of coronaviruses. Additional analyses show that the first ORFs between S and E genes of some coronaviruses are transmembrane proteins and share the common motif,indicating the possible common ancestor. From the host distribution of different groups of coronaviruses and the phylogeny of s2m,we can deduce that avian is the probable natural host of SARS-CoV.
