Hepatitis B virus, HBV, is a part of the Hepadnaviridae family of viruses. HBV can lead to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma and has been linked to pancreatic cancer. It is classified as a species of the Orthohepadnavirus. Similar viruses have been found worldwide in great apes and monkeys. There a few different genotypes and they all differ by at least 8% of the sequence and have distinct geographical distributions and this has been associated with anthropological history. Type A is...
Hepadnaviruses can cause liver infections in humans and animals. The two recognized genera are Genus Orthohepadnavirus and Genus Avihepadnavirus. It has a small genome of partially double-stranded, partially single stranded circular DNA. It is a group 7 virus that uses an RNA intermediate during replication. Most people who come into contact with the virus are able to clear the infection alone although some cannot and usually progress to fulminant hepatitis. It can cause sever liver...
