About this book

Reoviridae family members are large, complex viruses that infect human, animals, plants and insects. They are unique in that they lack lipid envelopes and package their genomes of discrete double-stranded segments of RNA within multi-layered capsids. Lack of a lipid envelope has allowed three-dimensional structures of these large complex viruses to be obtained. The capsids of these viruses undergo cell entry, uncoating, the enzymatic functions necessary for transcription of the genome, and are later involved in egress from host cells. Recent years have seen an increase in our knowledge of the structure of these viruses coupled with substantial progress in unravelling the molecular details of these processes. Intriguingly, despite their diversity in hosts, structures and modes of transmission, striking parallels have emerged in the molecular interactions necessary for the essential processes of virus entry, assembly and release.

This book reviews our current understanding of Reoviridae entry, disassembly/assembly and egress in addition to updating high resolution structures of viral proteins and capsids from three different genera of the family.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This volume contains nine reviews of various aspects of … the most studied members of the Reoviridae infecting mammalian and avian species. The reviews are for the most part conventional, authoritative and up-to-date accounts from major labs currently working in this area that will be of value to the cognoscenti working in the field and provide useful summaries for those studying other virus systems." (Malcolm McCrae, Microbiology Today, May, 2008)
