Non enveloped, bacilliform particles, 30 nm in width and 90-900 nm long.


Monopartite, open circular, double stranded DNA of about 7200 base pairs with discontinuities in both strands: one in the transcribed strand and one to three in the non-transcribed strand.


ORF1 polyprotein is presumably cleaved into several chains by viral protease.



  1. Attachement of the viral proteins to host receptors mediates its entry into the host cell.
  2. The viral dsDNA is released into the nucleus where it is transcribed by host RNA polymerase II
  3. RNA translation produces viral proteins.
  4. Genomic RNA is retrotranscribed in the cytoplasm into new dsDNA genomes
  5. Genomes are encapsidated with capsid protein, releasing new virions.
