What is Paramyxovirus?

Paramyxovirus Danger

A type of virus that has a special affinity for mucus proteins. Among them, measles, respiratory syncytial virus, Newcastle disease virus, etc. It can infect humans or animals, and have great importance in medicine and veterinary medicine. It is polymorphic, slightly larger than orthomyxovirus, with a diameter of 150 nanometers or more, with an envelope, and the surface of the envelope has ridge-shaped protrusions composed of glycoproteins. The nucleic acid in the virion is a continuous ssRNA (single-stranded RNA). Some can be prevented with live attenuated vaccines. High variability. Short latency.
