Considering this, is Coxsackie a picornavirus?
Coxsackieviruses. Coxsackieviruses are differentiated from other groups of picornaviruses by their pathogenicity for suckling mice and by classification of their antigenicity. They are classified as coxsackievirus group A (A1 to A, A24) and coxsackievirus group B (B1 to B6) (Table 53-2).
Likewise, is polio an acid labile? Polio virus is rapid, acid-resistant, stable, highly tissue specific and consists of a single-stranded, positive RNA. Polio virus is able to reside in the throat or intestinal tract of humans.
Consequently, what causes picornavirus?
Infection with various picornaviruses may be asymptomatic or may cause clinical syndromes such as aseptic meningitis (the most common acute viral disease of the CNS), encephalitis, the common cold, febrile rash illnesses (hand-foot-and-mouth disease), conjunctivitis, herpangina, myositis and myocarditis, and hepatitis.
What is the primer for picornavirus replication?
All picornaviruses have a protein, VPg, covalently linked to the 5'-ends of their genomes. Uridylylated VPg (VPg-pUpU) is thought to serve as the protein primer for RNA synthesis.
