Understanding how viral proteins are produced can provide important clues on how we might interfere with the process. The group of Till Rümenapf at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna (Vetmeduni Vienna) has discovered that a key protease of a particular virus breaks itself down into two different functional molecules. The findings are reported in the Journal of Virology and may have important implications for the development of defence strategies against diseases caused by...

Hepatitis E virus is an infective organism. The viral particles are 27 to 34 nanometers in diameter. They are non-enveloped and contain a single-strand of positive-sense RNA which is approximately 7300 bases in length. The virus was first visualized in 1983 and molecularly cloned in 1990. Previously it was classified in the family Caliciviridae. Its genome more closely resembles the rubella virus and is now classified as the only member of the genus Hepevirus which has not yet been...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an enveloped, positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus of the family Flaviviridae. It consists of a core of genetic material surrounded by an icosahedra protective shell of protein. The genome consists of a single open reading frame that is 9600 nucleotide bases long. HCV replication takes several steps. It primarily replicates in the hepatocytes of the liver. It can also reproduce in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. There is a wide variety of genotypes and...
