Papovaviridae

 [pah-po´vah-vir″ĭ-de]
the papovaviruses, a family of DNA viruses having a virion 40 to 55 nm in diameter with 72 capsomers in skew arrangement. Replication and assembly occur in the nucleus; virions are released by cell destruction. Host range is generally narrow; transmission is by contact or by airborne particles, and many species are oncogenic. There are two genera, Papovavirus and Polyomavirus.

Pa·po·va·vir·i·dae

(pă-pō'vă-vir'i-dē),
A family of small, antigenically distinct viruses that replicate in nuclei of infected cells; most have oncogenic properties. Virions are 45-55 nm in diameter, nonenveloped, and ether resistant; capsids are icosahedral with 72 capsomeres, and they contain double-stranded circular DNA (MW 3-5 × 106). The family includes two genera, Papillomavirus and Polyomavirus.

(pă-pō'vă-vir'i-dē)

Previous indexing (1971-1982) had placed JCV under the family to which the virus was formerly assigned (Papovaviridae) and the common name of the group to which it is now assigned (polyomaviruses); however, you cannot tell from the online MeSH database what the MeSH term was from 1994-2001.

Polyomavirus belongs to Papovaviridae, among which, BC virus (BCV) and JC virus (JCV) can induce diseases.1,2 It has been reported that,3 patients who undergo renal transplant usually have weak immune function, which improves possibility of polyomavirus infection.
Polyomavirus belongs to Papovaviridae. Renal transplantation recipients who develop polyomavirus infection are usually found with viruria or obviously abnormity in kidney and urinary system.9 10% ~ 60% renal transplantation recipients infect BKV during anti-rejection treatment, mostly occurring in three months.
En cuanto a la familia Papovaviridae, se transmite por contacto directo entre individuos o por vectores (acaros o pulgas).
