"Secalivirus"

  The partial genome of a highly divergent calicivirus was acquired from a sewage sample from Kathmandu, Nepal. It has tentatively been named Secalivirus (Sewage associated calici-like virus; SecaliV, JQ898339) (Ng et al., 2012). The partial genome sequence consisted of 4068 nt, including a partial capsid gene, followed by two ORFs of unknown function, and a 553 nt long 3 UTR ending with a poly-A tail. Pairwise identity analysis suggested that the SecaliV capsid protein was highly divergent to those of Caliciviridae (6-11% identity).
