Reoviridae

[‚rē·ə′vir·ə‚dī]
(virology)
A family of ribonucleic acid (RNA)-containing viruses characterized by an unenveloped icosahedral virion containing a genome of 10-12 segments (depending on the genus) of double-stranded RNA, hosts include vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants.

Members of the Reoviridae family are double-stranded RNA viruses with only two arboviruses in this family affecting humans--Banna virus and Coltivirus.
Rotavirus (RV), a double-stranded RNA virus in the family Reoviridae, is one of the most frequent causes of acute diarrhea in infants and children worldwide [3].
It is caused by bluetongue virus (BTV) of genus Orbivirus and family Reoviridae. The disease, transmitted by Culicoides (biting midges), was first reported in India in 1964 [134].
Segundo esse criterio, a maioria dos arbovirus atualmente registrados encontra-se distribuida dentro de seis familias: Bunyaviridae, Flaviviridae, Reoviridae, Rhabdoviridae, Togaviridae e Asfaviridae (5).
Los rotavirus, pertenecientes a la familia Reoviridae, son los principales agentes causales de diarrea aguda y deshidratante que afecta a los infantes menores de 5 anos y animales jovenes (Esposito et al., 2011).
Naked viruses cause diseases such as the common cold (picornaviridae and adenoviridae), warts (papillomaviridae) and rotavirus (reoviridae).
Los rotavirus (RV), virus con genoma de ARN de doble cadena segmentado, 70 nm de diametro y pertenecientes a la familia Reoviridae, constituyen los agentes etiologicos virales mayormente asociados con diarrea severa en ninos menores de 5 anos.
Rotavirus belongs to the family Reoviridae, subfamily Sedoreovirinae, and its genome consists of 11 segments of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA), which encode six structural proteins (VP1, VP2, VP3, VP4, VP6, and VP7) and six nonstructural proteins (NSP1-NSP6), with all genes being monocistronic except for segment 11 which encodes two proteins, NSP5 and NSP6 [6].
Rotaviruses are members of the Reoviridae family, genus Rotavirus (ICTV, 2009), possessing a non-enveloped particle measuring 80 nm of diameter which contain a genome consisting of 11 segments of double-stranded RNA (ICTV, 2006).
