Arenaviruses

  • Jordi Casals

Abstract

Arenavirus is the proposed designation for a set of viruses that have a unique morphology.(76) The virions are round, oval, or pleomorphic, with diameters between 60 and 350 nm, an electron-dense membrane with spikes or projections, and a number of inclusionlike, dense particles that give the virion an aspect of having been sand-sprinkled (arenosus). Arenaviruses have an RNA genome, are inactivated by lipid solvents, and share antigenic components. Since the first-recognized member of this group was lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCM) virus, it is considered the prototype.
