[‚hər·pēz′vir·ə‚dī]
(virology)
A family of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-containing viruses characterized by enveloped virions containing one molecule of double-stranded linear DNA wrapped around an associated spool-shaped protein inside an icosahedron. It includes subfamilies Alphaherpesvirinae (herpes simplex virus group), Betaherpesvirinae (cytomegalovirus group), and Gammaherpesvirinae (lymphoproliferative virus group).
