News : Latest ICTV Profiles Published: Guttaviridae and Rhabdoviridae

23 April 2018

Guttaviridae infect hyperthermophilic archaea and, like many other virus families that are specific to archaea, have a uniquely shaped virion which in Guttaviridae, is in the shape of a droplet. There are two genera in this family, each with one described species.

Rhabdoviridae includes important pathogens that affect humans, livestock and crops, the most well-known of which is the rabies virus which can be fatal. As well as plants and vertebrates, Rhabdoviruses can also be carried by arthropods which can act as vectors for transmission to plants or animals. Most members of Rhabdoviridae have bullet shaped or bacilliform virions.
