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.
