• The group of Negative-Stranded RNA Viruses (NSVs) includes many human pathogens, like the influenza, measles, mumps, respiratory syncytial or Ebola viruses, which produce frequent epidemics of disease and occasional, high mortality outbreaks by transmission from animal reservoirs. (osti.gov)
  • Early viral replicative intermediates are detected by two recently characterized cystolic viral RNA receptors-RIG-I and MDA-5. (nih.gov)
  • Members of the (+)ssRNA picornavirus group are also extremely abundant - to the point of "unexpected dominance" - in marine viruses characterized by metagenomics. (wikipedia.org)
