The Paramyxovirinae subfamily comprises 5 genera: Rubulavirus
, Respirovirus, Morbillivirus, Henipavirus, and Avulavirus.
Kabakulak Paramyxoviridae ailesinden rubulavirus
grubuna ait zarfli, negatif zincirli RNA yapisindaki bir virusunun etken oldugu ozellikle cocuk ve genc eriskinlerde tukuruk bezi tutulumuyla giden sistemik viral bir enfeksiyon hastaligidir (1,2).
Prevalence of henipavirus and rubulavirus

Etken paramyxovirus ailesinden, rubulavirus
grubundan bir RNA virusudur (2,5).
To the Editor: In 2010, detection of henipavirus (Hendra or Nipah virus) and rubulavirus
(Tioman or Menangle virus) antibodies in fruit bats in Papua New Guinea (PNG) was reported (1).
In addition to the henipaviruses, 2 novel paramyxoviruses in the genus Rubulavirus
were discovered in Australia and Malaysia.
Another paramyxovirus, the rubulavirus
Tioman (TiV), was isolated from the urine of a P.
Furthermore, 2 other paramyxo-oviruses belonging to the genus Rubulavirus
have been associated with flying foxes: Menangle virus, isolated in 1997 from pigs in Australia (13), and Tioman virus, isolated in 1999 from fruit bats in Malaysia (14).
Comparison of its deduced amino acid sequences with those of other family members confirm that Hendra virus is a member of the subfamily Paramyxovirinae, more closely related to members of the Paramyxovirus and Morbillivirus genera than the Rubulavirus
