  • Storm, Nadia; Jansen van Vuren, Petrus; Markotter, Wanda; Paweska, Janusz Tadeusz (MDPI Publishing, 2018-02-10)
    Egyptian rousette bats (ERBs) are reservoir hosts for the Marburg virus (MARV). The immune dynamics and responses to MARV infection in ERBs are poorly understood, and limited information exists on the role of antibodies ...

    Understanding the processes driving parasite assemblages is particularly important in the context of zoonotic infectious diseases. Leptospirosis is a widespread zoonotic bacterial infection caused by pathogenic species ...
  • Coetzer, Andre; Coertse, Jessica; Makalo, Mabusetsa Joseph; Molomo, Marosi; Markotter, Wanda; Nel, Louis Hendrik (MDPI Publishing, 2017-07-19)
    Rabies is widespread throughout Africa and Asia, despite the fact that the control and elimination of this disease has been proven to be feasible. Lesotho, a small landlocked country surrounded by South Africa, has been ...
  • Dietrich, Muriel; Kearney, Teresa; Seamark, E.C.J. (Ernest); Markotter, Wanda (Oxford University Press, 2017-01)
    Animal-associated microbiotas form complex communities, which play crucial functions for their host, including susceptibility to infections. Despite increasing attention to bats as reservoirs of zoonotic pathogens, their ...
  • Botha, Elizabeth Magdelena; Markotter, Wanda; Wolfaardt, Marianne; Paweska, Janusz Tadeusz; Swanepoel, Robert; Palacios, Gustavo; Nel, Louis Hendrik; Venter, Marietjie (Coordinating Center for Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2008-02)
    We determined complete genome sequences of lineage 2 West Nile virus (WNV) strains isolated from patients in South Africa who had mild or severe WNV infections. These strains had previously been shown to produce either ...
  • Jansen van Vuren, Petrus; Wiley, Michael R.; Palacios, Gustavo; Storm, Nadia; Markotter, Wanda; Birkhead, Monica; Kemp, Alan; Paweska, Janusz Tadeusz (Microbiology Society, 2017-05)
    The Bunyaviridae family comprises viruses causing diseases of public and veterinary health importance, including viral haemorrhagic and arboviral fevers. We report the isolation, identification and genome characterization ...
  • Geldenhuys, Marike; Mortlock, Marinda; Weyer, Jacqueline; Bezuidt, K.I.O. (Keoagile Ignatius Oliver); Seamark, E.C.J. (Ernest); Kearney, Teresa; Gleasner, Cheryl; Erkkila, Tracy H.; Cui, Helen; Markotter, Wanda (Public Library of Science, 2018-03-26)
    Species within the Neoromicia bat genus are abundant and widely distributed in Africa. It is common for these insectivorous bats to roost in anthropogenic structures in urban regions. Additionally, Neoromicia capensis ...
  • Rademan, Rochelle; Markotter, Wanda; Paweska, Janusz Tadeusz; Jansen van Vuren, Petrus (Elsevier, 2019-04)
    Zika (ZIKV) and Spondweni viruses (SPOV) are closely related mosquito borne flaviviruses in the Spondweni serogroup. The co-circulation and similar disease presentation following ZIKV and SPOV infection necessitates the ...
  • Jansen van Vuren, Petrus; Allam, Mushal; Wiley, Michael R.; Ismail, Arshad; Storm, Nadia; Birkhead, Monica; Markotter, Wanda; Palacios, Gustavo; Paweska, Janusz Tadeusz (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-06-25)
    Recently a number of novel adenoviruses have been isolated from diverse bat species and from diverse geographical locations. We describe the isolation of a novel adenovirus (Family Adenoviridae, genus Mastadenovirus) ...
  • Kgaladi, Joe; Faber, Milosz; Dietzschold, Bernhard; Nel, Louis Hendrik; Markotter, Wanda (MDPI Publishing, 2017-08-09)
    Lagos bat virus (LBV) is a phylogroup II lyssavirus exclusively found in Africa. Previous studies indicated that this virus is lethal to mice after intracranial and intramuscular inoculation. The antigenic composition ...
  • Melade, Julien; McCulloch, Stewart D.; Ramasindrazana, Beza; Lagadec, Erwan; Turpin, Magali; Pascalis, Herve; Goodman, Steven M.; Markotter, Wanda; Dellagi, Koussay (Public Library of Science, 2016-08-08)
    We provide serological evidence of lyssavirus circulation among bats on southwestern Indian Ocean (SWIO) islands. A total of 572 bats belonging to 22 species were collected on Anjouan, Mayotte, La Réunion, Mauritius, ...
  • Dietrich, Muriel; Kearney, Teresa; Seamark, E.C.J. (Ernest); Paweska, Janusz Tadeusz; Markotter, Wanda (Royal Society Publishing, 2018)
    Seasonal reproduction is a period of extreme physiological and behavioural changes, yet we know little about how it may affect host microbial communities (i.e. microbiota) and pathogen transmission. Here, we investigated ...
