  The genome sequences of six picornaviruses of red-crowned cranes (Grus japonensis) have been deposited on GenBank (Wang et al., 2018).

Strain Length Accession Most closely related genus
   (3Dpol aa idenity)
yc-1/China/2014 7443 KY312540 Hepatovirus (40%)
yc-2/China/2014 7073 KY312541 Hepatovirus (40%)
yc-3/China/2014 6912 KY312542 Avihepatovirus (54%)
yc-4/China/2014 6809 KY312543 Avihepatovirus (53%)
yc-5/China/2014 7917 KY312544 Avihepatovirus (51%)
yc-6/China/2014 7104 KY312545 Avihepatovirus (53%)

Each of the sequences (based on comparisons of the polyproteins) are distantly related to each other. For example, the approximate amino acid identity between yc-1 and yc-2 is only 32%; yc3 and yc-4 is 41%; yc4 and yc-5 is 37%; yc-5 and yc-6 is 38%; yc-3 and yc-5 is 71%; yc-3 and yc-6 is 38%; yc-4 and yc-6 is 46%.
