Hepatitis E Virus- An Overview

Hepatitis E Virus

Structure of Hepatitis E Virus Image: Schematic illustration of non-enveloped and quasi-enveloped HEV particles as well as enveloped virus. The putative model of quasi-enveloped HEV virion includes ORF3 product in its envelope as the existence of pORF3 has been confirmed by capturing quasi-enveloped HEV virion with anti-pORF3 antibodies and further supported by prediction of a putative transmembrane region in the N-terminal …

Clinical Manifestations of Hepatitis A Virus

Structure of Hepatitis A Virus HAV (Hepatitis A Virus) is a distinct member of the picornavirus family, assigned to genus hepatovirus. HAV is a 27 nm to 32 nm spherical particle with icosahedral symmetry containing a linear single-stranded RNA genome with a size of 7.5 kb and non-enveloped. Hepatitis A virions have a primary buoyant density of 1.32 to 1.34 g/cc …
