Enveloped, pleomorphic virion about 40nm in diameter.
Circular ssDNA genome of 16 kb, encoding 35 ORFs.
The ds DNA genome is probably transcribed by host RNA polymerase.
- Virus attaches to host cell, and genomic DNA penetrates into the cytoplasm.
- Presumably the ssDNA is converted to dsDNA.
- Transcription of viral genes, possibly by a host RNA polymerase.
- Genome replication, possibly by rolling circle
- Assembly and release of virions.
