Topic: Betaherpesvirinae


In the News (Tue 23 Jul 19)

  
  Medscape MEDLINE search: Betaherpesvirinae
Cytomegaloviruses (CMVs) are members of the Betaherpesvirinae subfamily of the Herpesviridae, and their properties of latency, large DNA size, gene redundancy, and ability to be cloned as bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs) suggest their utility as vaccine vectors.
The rat cytomegalovirus (RCMV) R33 and R78 genes are conserved within members of the subfamily Betaherpesvirinae and encode proteins (pR33 and pR78, respectively) that show sequence similarity with G protein-coupled receptors.
The prototype member of the Betaherpesvirinae subfamily, cytomegalovirus (CMV), is the most important infectious pathogen in transplant recipients, including those receiving bone marrow or stem cell grafts.

 eMedicine - Cytomegalovirus : Article Excerpt by: Todd Wills, MD
Most people are infected with CMV at some point in life, although the age of infection varies worldwide.
The pathologic hallmark of CMV infection is an enlarged cell with viral inclusion bodies.
Cells that exhibit cytomegaly are also seen in infections caused by other Betaherpesvirinae.

Herpesviruses are generally divided into three subfamilies: Alphaherpesvirinae, Betaherpesvirinae, and Gammaherpesvirinae.
Betaherpesvirinae includes Cytomegalovirus and Human Herpesviruses 6 and 7.
Gammaherpesvirinae is made up of Epstein-Barr Virus and Human Herpesvirus 8.

 CMV Info
Human Cytomegalovirus is a herpesvirus of the betaherpesvirinae subfamily.
The members of this subfamily tend to have a restricted host range, slow spread in cell culture and a long growth cycle as compared to Herpes Simplex Virus.
The virus is found universally throughout all geographic locations and socioeconomic groups and infects between 50 and 85% of adults in the United States by 40 years of age.
