Pathological Roles of Feline Morbillivirus Infection in Cat Kidney Tissues

Feline Morbillivirus (FeMV, originally named as FmoPV) was discovered in Hong Kong in 2012 and has been detected across different regions of the world since then. FeMV is officially classified as a member of genus Morbillivirus by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV), though its genome sequence is relatively distant from the other members in the genus, and has some distinctive biological characteristics, such as infection in kidney tissues and lack of known severe acute symptoms upon infection.
