Morphology

Not reported.

Nucleic acid

Non-segmented, negative-sense RNA.

Proteins

Orinovirus genomes encode 5 proteins including a putative nucleocapsid protein, phosphoprotein, glycoprotein and RNA-directed RNA polymerase identified on the basis of sequence similarity and structural properties shared with mononegavirus homologues.

Genome organization and replication

Orinoco virus (ONCV) has a negative-sense RNA genome of 9.6 kb.

Antigenicity

Not reported.

Biology

Orinoco virus genome sequence was isolated from green pugs (Pasiphila rectangulata Linnaeus, 1758).
