Unknown, discovered using viral metagenomics.
Negative-stranded RNA linear genome, about 6 kb in size. Encodes for one protein. CAUTION:All negative stranded RNA viruses encode a nucleoprotein that is missing from the current data. Either a segment is missing or there is a new kind of replication/transcription mechanism.
Unknown. Enzyme:RNA dependent RNA polymerase, RNA guanylyl transferase, mRNA methyltransferase.
- Virus entry into host cell
- Sequential transcription.
- Replication presumably starts when enough nucleoprotein is present to encapsidate neo-synthetized antigenomes and genomes.
- Budding of virion or transmission through Fungal intercellular connetions
