Molecular biology


Enveloped, spherical. Diameter from 80 to 120nm.


Segmented Negative-stranded RNA linear genome, L segment is between 6.8 and 12 kb, M segment between 3.2 and 4.9 kb and S segment between 1 and 3 kb.
Encodes for four to six proteins.


The viral RNA dependent RNA polymerase (L) bind to a promoter on each encapsidated segment, and transcribes the mRNA. Transcription is terminated by a strong hairpin sequence at the end of each gene. mRNAs are capped by L protein during synthesis. Orthobunyavirus and Hantavirus express alternative ORF by leaky scanning Phlebovirus and Tospovirus have ambisense segment(s).



  1. Virus attaches to host receptors though Gn-Gc glycoprotein dimer, and is endocytosed into vesicles in the host cell.
  2. Fusion of virus membrane with the vesicle membrane; ribonucleocapsid segments are released in the cytoplasm.
  3. Transcription, viral mRNAs are capped in the cytoplasm.
  4. Replication presumably starts when enough nucleoprotein is present to encapsidate neo-synthetized antigenomes and genomes.
  5. The ribonucleocapsids migrate under the plasma membrane and buds, releasing the virion.

Host-virus interaction

Inhibition of host innate immunity

The Nairovirus L contains an ovarian tumor domain-containing Deubiquitinase that targets activated RIG-I to control innate immune signaling.

Inhibition of host transcription initiation

The Bunyamwera virus (BUNV) NSs protein plays a role in the inhibition of host RNA polymerase II

The Rift valley fever virus NSs protein instead plays a role in the inhibition of the host transcription initiation by acting on host TFIIH.
