Investigations of HPS cases in the United States have resulted not only in studies of the deer mouse and SNV but also in the identification of three additional host-virus relationships that maintain hantaviruses responsible for human disease (New York virus carried by the white-footed mouse, Peromyscus leucopus [Figure 1] [15]; Black Creek Canal virus carried by the cotton rat, Sigmodon hispidus [16]; and Bayou virus carried by the rice rat, Oryzomys palustris [17]).
This assay would detect (but not distinguish among) infections by New York virus (from the white-footed mouse [15]), Prospect Hill-like viruses (from arvicoline rodents [30]), El Moro Canyon virus (from the Western harvest mouse [31]), Black Creek Canal virus (from the cotton rat [16]), and Bayou virus (from the rice rat [17]).
