ICTV virus taxonomy profile: Nimaviridae

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The family Nimaviridae includes the single species White spot syndrome virus, isolates of which infect a wide range of aquatic crustaceans and cause substantial economic losses. Virions are ellipsoid to bacilliform with a terminal thread-like extension. The circular dsDNA genome is 280–307 kbp with several homologous repeat regions. More than 80 structural and functional proteins have been characterized from 531 ORFs. White spot syndrome is a highly lethal, contagious disease associated with white spot syndrome virus infection of shrimps. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the family Nimaviridae, which is available at www.ictv.global/report/nimaviridae.
