  Flaviviridae - MicrobeWiki
The virions of flaviviridae consist of an envelope and a nucleocapsid.
Flaviviridae viruses produce a wide range of diseases including fever, arthralgia, rash, haemorrhagic fever and encephalitis.
The outcome of infection is influenced by both the virus and a number of host-specific factors like age, sex, genetic susceptibility and preexposure to same or related agent.

Flaviviridae are a family of viruses that infect mammals.
The genome of the Flaviviridae viruses is a monopartite, linear, single-stranded RNA of 10,000-11,000 nucleotides.
The 5'-terminus carries a methylated nucleotide cap or a genome-linked protein.

Few years ago, "GB" viruses were identified and characterized as Flaviviridae agents leading to hepatitis [2] but not belonging to hepacivirus.
The NS5B sequence comparison of Flaviviridae showed that motif E could be extended to CS-18X-[RKT]-x(8)-[RK] as a signature sequence (Figure 6).
In HCV polymerase, the cavity is larger than the GBV-C pocket and therefore the binding of the GTP molecule is closer to what is observed in the case of the BVDV polymerase structure (Figure 7 compare B and C).

(fla´vĭ-vi”rəs) [flavo- + virus] a genus of viruses of the family Flaviviridae of worldwide distribution, containing about 75 species in 9 serogroups, many members of which cause disease in humans and animals.
Important human pathogens include the yellow fever, dengue, West Nile, St. Louis encephalitis, Japanese encephalitis, Murray Valley encephalitis, tick-borne encephalitis, Kyasanur Forest disease, and Omsk hemorrhagic fever viruses.
Mosquitoes are the most common vector, with some species being tick-borne and some species having no known vector.

VHFs are contracted through the bite of an infected arthropod, via aerosol generated from infected rodent excreta, ingestion of contaminated foods, or by direct contact with infected animal carcasses.
At present the vectors or reservoirs for Ebola and Marburg viruses are not understood.
Except for members of the Flaviviridae family, which lack human to human transmission, VHFs are highly contagious and spread easily from person to person via inhalation of aerosolized particles, mucosal exposure or physical contact with a patient or corpse.

Like all the members of the family Flaviviridae, the yellow fever virus is an enveloped virus containing a single stranded RNA of positive polarity.
After binding of the virion to the cell surface and receptor mediated endocytosis, the nucleocapsid is released into the cytoplasm where translation and RNA replication occurs.
The conserved RNA elements predicted in the coding region of the flavivirus genome might also function to accelerate virus replication in the environment thereby enhancing the likelihood of virus survival.
