Chuviridae (taxid:2501952)


Unknown, discovered using viral metagenomics. Presumably non enveloped.



Segmented negative-stranded RNA linear genome, RNA1 segment is about 6.5kb, RNA2 segment about 1.3kb
Encodes for two proteins.


Viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (L) binds to a promoter on each segment and transcribes a messenger RNA. Genomic RNA is possibly encapsidated by N protein.




  1. Virus invades host cells by unknown mechanism: genomic genome is released in cytoplasm.
  2. Transcription
  3. Replication
  4. Unknown mechanism of propagation.
These structures were created with the help of Colabfold by Jason Nomburg, Nathan Price and Jennifer Doudna (ModelArchive).
