Hepatitis E virus

Lineage: Viruses[25704]; Riboviria[5774]; Orthornavirae[4467]; Kitrinoviricota[825]; Alsuviricetes[541]; Hepelivirales[22]; Hepeviridae[8]; Orthohepevirinae[4]; Paslahepevirus[1]; Paslahepevirus balayani[1]

Description of Hepeviridae

Genomes of this family of viruses are organized similarly to members of the Caliciviridae. However, no viral protein is attached at the 5'-terminus of the genome and the non-structural proteins resemble those of the Togaviridae.


Virions isometric (icosahedral), not enveloped 27-34 nm in diameter.

Nucleic Acid

Monopartite, positive sense single-stranded RNA, approximately 7.2 kb in length with a 3'-polyA tail.


Sequence data: genome assemblies: 11
Statistics: median total length (Mb): 0.007207
 median protein count: 3
 median GC%: 55.5
