Re·o·vir·i·dae

(rē'ō-vir'i-dē),
A family of double-stranded RNA viruses, some of which (Reovirus) previously were included with Echoviruses, and others (Orbivirus), with arboviruses. Virions are 60-80 nm in diameter, usually naked, and ether resistant; genomes contain double-stranded, segmented RNA (MW 10-16 × 106); capsids are of icosohedral symmetry with two layers of capsomeres. The family comprises nine genera: Orthoreovirus, Orbivirus, Rotavirus, Coltivirus, Aquareovirus, cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus group (Cypovirus), and three plant reovirus groups (Phytoreovirus, Fijivirus, and Oryzavirus).

Reoviridae

/Reo·vi·ri·dae/ (re″o-vir´ĭ-de) the reoviruses: a family of RNA viruses with a linear double-stranded RNA genome; it includes the genera Orbivirus, Orthoreovirus,Rotavirus, and Coltivirus.

Re·o·vir·i·dae

(rē'ō-vir'i-dē)
A family of double-stranded RNA viruses, comprising six genera: Reovirus, Orbivirus, Rotavirus, cytoplasmic polyhidrosis virus group (Cypovirus), and two plant reovirus groups (Phytoreovirus, Fijivirus).

Reoviridae

a family of nonenveloped, medium-sized viruses that have a double capsid structure and a segmented double-strand RNA genome. There are three genera of importance in veterinary medicine: Orthoreovirus (previously Reovirus), Orbivirus and Rotavirus.
