Part Description

LP263694-4   Human coronavirus 229E+HKU1+NL63+OC43 RNA
Coronaviruses are positive-sense, single-stranded RNA viruses. The envelope of the virus has glycoprotein spikes that give it a crown-like appearance. There are six strains of coronavirus within two subgroups that infect humans. The strains of human coronaviruses that commonly infect people worldwide include 229E and NL63 in the Alpha subgroup and OC43 and HKU1 in the Beta subgroup. These viruses most often cause common cold symptoms, but can also lead to pneumonia. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) are less common but cause more severe illness.[][] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
