Picornaviridae

Genus: Rabovirus


Genus: Rabovirus

Virion

Morphology

Virus has not yet been isolated.

Nucleic acid

Length of genome (Ng et al., 2015): 7,834 nt (5'-UTR: 751 nt; ORF: 7,005 nt; 3'-UTR: 78 nt). The location of the cre has not been identified.

Genome organization and replication

Genome layout:

VPg+5'UTRIRES-II[L/1A-1B-1C-1D/2Apro-2B-2C/3A-3B-3C-3D]3'UTR-poly(A)

The deduced polyprotein has a length of 2,335 amino acids. The L protein has unknown function. The 2A protein has been proposed to be chymotrypsin-like protease. 

Biology

Viral RNA was detected in faeces of Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus) in USA and Germany.

Species demarcation criteria

Divergence of P1 sequences suggest the single species Rabovirus A may include two types.
