Parvoviridae

[‚pär·və′vir·ə‚dī]
(virology)
A family of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-containing animal viruses characterized by an icosahedral virion containing three or four structural proteins and a single-stranded DNA genome; includes the Dependovirus, Parvovirus, and Densovirus genera.

The virus, which closely resembles the genome of viruses in the Parvoviridae family, is common, with a positive infection rate in most studies of 1%-8%, although it exceeds 18% in others.
De acuerdo a su morfologia y caracteristicas bioquimicas, el IHHNV pertenece taxonomicamente a la familia Parvoviridae [2], siendo el virus mas pequeno (22 nm de diametro) con cadena simple de ADN que afecta a los camarones peneidos.
B19 of the family Parvoviridae is the etiologic agent responsible for a wide range of clinical syndromes, such as erythema infectiosum, postinfection arthropathies, fetal hydrops, transient aplastic crises in patients with hemolytic anemia, and chronic infections, mainly in immunocompromised patients.
Subsequent genetic and biochemical analysis identified this virus as belonging to the virus family Parvoviridae, genus Parvovirus, from the Latin word parvo meaning small (Adams & Ware, 1996).
Viral transduction studies using a murine model and adeno-associated virus (another member of the Parvoviridae family) reported genomic integration in 100% of the hepatocytes and striated muscle system after a single intravenous administration [11].
cgi) alignment to GenBank viral sequences enabled the assignment of most viral sequences to phages (not represented) and viruses of the Partitiviridae and Parvoviridae (Densovirinae) families (online Technical Appendix Figure 1); however, a few reads pointed to a member of the Iflaviridae family, which contains such notable bee pathogens as deformed wing virus and slow bee paralysis virus (9).
