Description

LP15011-7   Reovirus
The Reoviridae (Respiratory Enteritic Orphan virus) are a family of viruses that includes some viruses that affect the gastrointestinal system (such as Rotavirus), and some that cause respiratory infections. The genetic material of viruses in this family is double-stranded RNA. The name Reoviridae is derived from respiratory enteric orphan viruses. The term orphan virus means a virus that is not associated with any known disease. Even though Reoviridae have been identified with various diseases, the original name is still used. Reovirus infection occurs often in humans, but most cases are mild or subclinical. The virus can be readily detected in faeces, and many also be recovered from pharyngeal or nasal secretions, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and blood. Despite the ease of finding Reovirus in clinical specimens, their role in human disease or treatment is still uncertain. Reoviruses have an inner and outer layer to their capsids--a double capsid.
