Polyomaviridae

Genus: Deltapolyomavirus


Genus: Deltapolyomavirus

Distinguishing features

This genus contains viruses, which are detected on the skin (human polyomaviruses 6 and 7) and in the gastrointestinal tract (human polyomavirus 10 (MW polyomavirus); human polyomavirus 11 (STL polyomavirus)).

Virion

See discussion under family description. 

Genome organization and replication

Antigenicity

Biology

Species demarcation criteria

  1. Sufficient information on the natural host
  2. Observed genetic distance from a member of the most closely related species is >15% for the LTAg coding sequence
  3. When two polyomaviruses exhibit <15% observed genetic distance, biological properties may be of additional critical importance (e.g. host specificity, disease association, tissue tropism, etc.)
