Globuloviridae

VIRION

The virions are spherical with a diameter of about 100 nm. They are probably enveloped containing tightly packed nucleoprotein in a superhelical conformation.

GENOME

Non segmented, linear double-stranded DNA of 20-30kb. The genome has terminally redundant sequences which have inverted terminal repetitions (ITR).

GENE EXPRESSION

A total of 48 putative ORF have been identified in the PSV genome.

REPLICATION

CYTOPLASMIC
