Phlebovirus

provided by wikipedia EN

Phlebovirus is one of twenty genera of the family Phenuiviridae in the order Bunyavirales. The genus contains 66 species.[1] It derives its name from Phlebotominae, the vectors of member species Sandfly fever Naples phlebovirus, which is said to be ultimately from the Greek phlebos, meaning "vein".[2] The proper word for "vein" in ancient Greek is however phleps (φλέψ).[3]

Virology

Replication cycle of phleboviruses.

Phleboviruses are viruses with a negative-sense RNA genome consisting of three segments. The small segment (S) codes for the viral N protein and a non structural protein, NSs via an ambisense coding strategy. The medium-sized segment (M) codes for a precursor of the viral glycoproteins and non-structural components. The product of the largest segment (L) is the viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase.[4]

Clinical significance

The following twelve viruses have been linked to disease in humans: Alenquer phlebovirus,[5] Bhanja virus,[6] Candiru phlebovirus,[7] Chagres virus, Sandfly fever Naples phlebovirus, Punta Toro phlebovirus, Rift Valley fever virus, Sicilian phlebovirus, Toscana phlebovirus, Uukuniemi virus, Heartland bandavirus[8] (the first tick-borne phlebovirus known to cause disease in the Western Hemisphere, discovered in 2009), and the Sandfly Turkey virus (discovered in China in 2011).[9] They cause symptoms ranging from short self-limiting fevers, such as pappataci fever, to encephalitis and fatal viral hemorrhagic fever.

Taxonomy

The following species are recognized:[1]

As of 2015, within the phlebovirus there are four genetic groups of tick-borne phleboviruses: the SFTS group, the Bhanja group, the Uukuniemi group,[10] and the Kaisodi group.[11]
