Rhab·do·vir·i·dae

(rab'dō-vir'i-dē),
A family of rod- or bullet-shaped viruses of vertebrates, insects, and plants, including rabiesvirus and vesicular stomatitis virus (of cattle). Virions (100-430 by 45-100 nm), formed by budding from surface membranes of cells, are enveloped and ether sensitive, with surface spikes 5-10 nm long; nucleocapsids contain negative-sense single-stranded RNA (MW ~4.4 × 106) and are of helical symmetry. Five genera have been found: Vesiculovirus, Lyssavirus, Ephemerovirus, Nucleorhabdovirus, and Cytorhabdovirus.

Rhabdoviridae

a family in the order Mononegavirales, of bullet-shaped, enveloped viruses with a single-strand negative sense RNA genome and a helical nucleocapsid. Two genera cause disease in animals: Vesiculovirus, which contains vesicular stomatitis virus, Lyssavirus, which contains rabies, Ephemerovirus, which causes bovine ephemeral fever virus and Norvirhabdovirus, which are the fish rhabdoviruses that cause viral hemorrhagic septicemia, infectious hemopoietic necrosis, spring viremia of carp.
