MeSH (kontrollerede emneord)
  • Coronaviridae
  • Coronavirus


Spherical RNA viruses, in the order NIDOVIRALES, infecting a wide range of animals including humans. Transmission is by fecal-oral and respiratory routes. Mechanical transmission is also common. There are two genera: CORONAVIRUS and TOROVIRUS.

Dorland's Definition: Coronaviridae: the coronaviruses and toroviruses: a family of RNA viruses having a pleomorphic virion 120-160 nm in diameter consisting of a lipid-containing membrane, with large peplomers, surrounding a helical (for coronaviruses) or tubular (for toroviruses) nucleocapsid. The genome consists of a single molecule of positive-sense single-stranded polyadenylated RNA (MW 5.5-6.1 ? 106, size about 30 kb for coronaviruses and 25-30 kb for toroviruses). Viruses contain three major structural polypeptides and are resistant to trypsin but sensitive to lipid solvents, detergents, ultraviolet radiation, disinfectants, and heat. Replicating occurs in the cytoplasm and assembly is by budding, usually through intracytoplasmic membranes; virions are released by exocytosis or by cell destruction. Transmission is mechanical, including airborne particles, contaminated equipment, and contact with infected persons. Included here are the genera Coronavirus and Torovirus.
