Phlebovirus (Phleboviridae) is one of five genre of the family Bunyaviridae. Its members are class V virus with segmented ambisense RNA genomes. Due to their need for self coded reverse transcriptase, there are two rounds of replication, one before the production of reverse transcriptase and one after it production. Genera Hantavirus Nairovirus Orthobunyavirus Phlebovirus Tospovirus Bunyaviridae is a family of viruses. ... To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...

The genome comprises 3 segments, two of which are ambisense. The small segment (S) codes for the viral N protein and a non structural protein. The medium sized segment (M) codes for a precursor of the viral glycoprotein; non-structural components. The product of the largest segment is an RNA polymerase. In biology the genome of an organism is the whole hereditary information of an organism that is encoded in the DNA (or, for some viruses, RNA). ...

Phleboviridae currently has 68 antigenically distinct virus serotypes, only a few of which have been studied. Of these 68 serotypes, eight of them have been linked to disease in humans, they are: Alenquer, Candiru, Chagres, sandfly fever Naples, sandfly fever Punta Toro, Rift Valley fever, sandfly fever Sicilian and sandfly fever Toscana. District or region Lisbon Mayor   - Party Álvaro Pedro PS Area 304. ... Species Ref: FishBase 2002-08-10 The candirú or canero (Vandellia cirrhosa) is a freshwater fish in the group commonly called the catfishes. ... Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a viral zoonosis (affects primarily domestic livestock, but can be passed to humans) causing fever. ...

The 68 known serotypes are divided into two groups; the Phlebotomus fever viruses (sandfly group) are transmitted by sandflies and comprise 55 members and the Uukuniemi group (transmitted by ticks) having 13 members. Species Species Phlebotomus longicuspis Species Phlebotomus papatasi Species Phlebotomus sergenti Phlebotomus is a genus of flies or diptera in the family Phlebotomidae, which generally includes sand flies. In the past, they were considered to belong to the family Psychodidae. ... Uukuniemi is a municipality of Finland. ...

They cause symptoms ranging from short self limiting fevers to encephalitis and fatal haemorrhagic fever. Encephalitis is an acute inflammation of the brain, commonly caused by a viral infection. ... Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) are a group of illnesses that are caused by several distinct families of viruses: Arenavirus, Filoviridae, Bunyaviridae and Flavivirus. ...
