According to the reports, the NS protein of Flaviviridae
serves principal roles in virus replication and the interaction between hosts and pathogens [6, 7].
The cause of the infection is a Dengue virus from the genus Flaviviridae
, of the Togaviridae family.
Dengue virus exists as four antigenically distinct viruses designated as serotypes (DENV-1 through DENV-4), belonging to genus Flavivirus of family Flaviviridae
. It has a positive-sense RNA genome that is translated as a single polyprotein and post-translationally cleaved into three structural proteins and seven nonstructural proteins (Henchal & Putnak, 1990).
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an enveloped single stranded RNA virus that represents the type species of the Hepacivirus genus within the Flaviviridae
ZIKV itself is a single stranded RNA virus that belongs to the Flaviviridae
family, along with YFV, West Nile Virus, Japanese Encephalitis Virus, and DENV.
As dengue and Zika are both part of the Flaviviridae
family transmitted through a common mosquito host, the researchers wanted to know how vaccinating for one would affect the incidence of the other.
The virus is closely related to other viruses in the family Flaviviridae
such as West Nile, dengue, and yellow fever.
Dengue fever (DF) is the most common acute febrile viral disease among all the arthropod-borne viral diseases caused by a single-stranded RNA virus of Flaviviridae
