reovirus

 [re´o-vi″rus]
any member of a family of ether-resistant RNA viruses isolated from healthy children, children with febrile and afebrile upper respiratory disease, children with diarrhea, and many animals.

Re·o·vi·rus

(rē'ō-vī'rŭs),
A genus of viruses now currently called Orthoreovirus (family Reoviridae) that are 80 nm in diameter, with distinct double layers of capsomeres, and have vertebrates as hosts; they have been recovered from children with upper respiratory tract infections, mild fever, and sometimes diarrhea, and from children with no apparent infection; from chimpanzees with coryza; monkeys, mice; and cattle feces. There are three antigenically distinct human types related by a common complement-fixing antigen and at least 12 avian orthoreoviruses.

1. any virus belonging to the family Reoviridae.
2. any virus belonging to the genus Orthoreovirus.

reovirus

(rē′ō-vī′rəs)

Any of a family of viruses that contain double-stranded RNA and are associated with various diseases in animals, including human respiratory and gastrointestinal infections.

reovirus

[rē′ōvī′rəs]
Etymology: respiratory enteric orphan + L, virus
any one of three ubiquitous, double-stranded ribonucleic acid viruses found in the respiratory and alimentary tracts of both healthy and sick people. Reoviruses have been implicated in some cases of upper respiratory tract disease and infantile gastroenteritis.
