Summary of "ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profile: Nimaviridae."

The family Nimaviridae includes the single species White spot syndrome virus, isolates of which infect a wide range of aquatic crustaceans and cause substantial economic losses. Virions are ellipsoid to bacilliform with a terminal thread-like extension. The circular dsDNA genome is 280-307 kbp with several homologous repeat regions. More than 80 structural and functional proteins have been characterized from 531 ORFs. White spot syndrome is a highly lethal, contagious disease associated with white spot syndrome virus infection of shrimps. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the family Nimaviridae, which is available at

ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profile: Tristromaviridae.

Tristromaviridae is a family of viruses with linear, double-stranded DNA genomes of 16-18 kbp. The flexible, filamentous virions (400±20 nm×30±3 nm) consist of an envelope and an inner core con...

ICTV virus taxonomy profile: Quadriviridae.

The Quadriviridae is a monogeneric family of non-enveloped spherical viruses with quadripartite dsRNA genomes, each segment of 3.5-5.0 kbp, comprising 16.8-17.1 kbp in total. The family includes t...

The Genome-Based Virus Taxonomy with ICTV Database Extension.

In 1966, the International Classification of Viruses (ICNV) was established to standardize the naming of viruses. In 1975, the organization was renamed 'ICTV', by which it is still known today. The pr...

Strengthening the Interaction of the Virology Community with the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) by Linking Virus Names and Their Abbreviations to Virus Species.

The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) is tasked with classifying viruses into taxa (orders to species) and devising taxon names. Virus names and virus name abbreviations are curren...

Enhanced taxonomy annotation of antiviral activity data from ChEMBL.

The discovery of antiviral drugs is a rapidly developing area of medicinal chemistry research. The emergence of resistant variants and outbreaks of poorly studied viral diseases make this area constan...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A family of DNA invertebrate viruses with one genus: Whispovirus.

A genus that has been reclassified into BACILLALES incertae sedis because of its ambiguous taxonomy. Previously it was considered part of the Staphylococcaceae family.

A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).

An Ig domain-containing membrane receptor for HEPATITIS A VIRUS; EBOLA VIRUS; MARBURG VIRUS; and DENGUE VIRUS. It may also function to modulate ASTHMA and HYPERSENSITIVITY.

A strain of MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS associated with mouse tumors similar to those caused by the FRIEND MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS. It is a replication-competent murine leukemia virus. It can act as a helper virus when complexing with a defective transforming component, RAUSCHER SPLEEN FOCUS-FORMING VIRUS.
