  Reoviridae - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
The Reoviridae (Respiratory Enteritic Orphan virus) are a family of viruses that includes some viruses that affect the gastrointestinal system (such as Rotavirus), and some that cause respiratory infections.
The name Reoviridae is derived from respiratory enteric orphan viruses.
Even though Reoviridae have been identified with various diseases, the original name is still used.

 intro to reoviridae
Later 3 serotypes were identified which were designated as reovirus and categorized under the Reoviridae family.
Later it was discovered that the 3 serotypes share a common group antigen as detected by complement fixation.
Reoviridae family has a virion of 60-80 nm in diameter and has a genomic size of 16-27 kilobase pairs.

 eMedicine - Reoviruses : Article Excerpt by: Gholamreza Rasouli, MD
The family Reoviridae is divided into 9 genera, 4 of which—Orthoreovirus, Coltivirus, Rotavirus, and Orbivirus—can infect humans and animals.
The virions of Reoviridae family viruses measure 60-80 nm in diameter and possess 2 concentric capsid shells, each of which is icosahedral.
Reovirus particles are composed of an inner protein shell (ie, core) of a diameter of 60 nanometers (nm), which is surrounded by an outer protein shell (ie, outer capsid) measuring 81 nm in diameter.

Mammalian reovirus had been the major focus for molecular understanding of the Reoviridae and has served as a model system for the other members of the family.
With this platform two other members of the family causing disease in human and/or animals have gained in prominence and the molecular interactions from a structural level through to host-virus interactions as well as the function of the structural and non-structural proteins in the virus life cycle has been investigated in detail.
This book reviews our current understanding of Reoviridae entry, disassembly/assembly and egress in addition to updating high resolution structures of virus proteins and capsids from three different genera of the family.

 Reoviridae 2004
Reoviridae (respiratory enteric orphan viridae) is a family of naked double-stranded RNA viruses.
The nine genera of reoviridae infect a wide range of hosts including vertabrates, invertabrates, and plants.
Despite reoviridae's name, many reoviruses are not ophan viruses and do, indeed, cause disease.

The family Reoviridae is composed of eight genera: Orthoreovirus, Orbivirus, Coltivirus, Rotavirus, Aquareovirus, Cypovirus, Phytoreovirus, and Fijivirus.
Although the orthoreoviruses (referred to commonly as reoviruses), orbiviruses,coltiviruses, and rotaviruses are similar in morphology, diameter (about 70 nm), and possession of a segmented, double-stranded RNA genome, they differ in epidemiology, association with disease, and ability to be cultured.
The family name Reoviridae is derived from the prototype "reovirus" strain of the genus Orthoreovirus, the first genus of this family to be identified.

The other families that are included in the new Order all show similarities (in their replication, structure and/or genome) to members of the Reoviridae The dsRNA viruses include a diverse group of pathogens that can infect a wide range of host organisms, including both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, exploiting an enormous variety of different econiches.
However, the members of four families of dsRNA viruses (Totiviridae, Cystoviridae, Birnaviridae and the largest of the families, the Reoviridae) show evidence of common structural principles that suggest a common ancestry (2), despite differences in their genome organization (single, double, treble or multi segmented, RNA genomes).
Members of the Totiviridae, Cystoviridae, and Reoviridae also have an innermost capsid shell that is composed of 120 copies of a flat, approximately triangular protein, arranged with a common icosahedral symmetry, that has previously been described as either T=1 or T=2 (3, 4, 5, 6).

Within the family Reoviridae, in addition to reovirus, extensive work on genome assortment has been done with bluetongue virus [2-4] and rotavirus [5-8].
What remains true for each of these viruses is the lack of a complete explanation for how a multi-segmented dsRNA virus is able to replicate, assort and package multiple RNA segments to yield progeny virus particles with particle to PFU ratios less than 10 and for reovirus measured by one researcher, approaching 1.0 [9].
This conservation of nucleotides is also present in the ssRNAs of the other members of the Reoviridae family, with all the genome segments of a specific virus possessing identical nucleotides at their 5' and 3' termini, but with these nucleotides being different from family to family.

Human reoviruses are members of the Orthoreovirus genus and are prototype members of the family Reoviridae.
Our research has led to the identification of the specific reoviral organizing protein that induces formation of the viral structures and controls aspects of cell tropism and tissue damage.
This discovery establishes the possibility to utilize this viral protein as the basis for a novel target for anti-reoviral therapies that should be applicable to all members of the family Reoviridae.
