Rift Valley fever (RVF) is a mosquito-borne zoonotic disease caused by a phlebovirus of the family Bunyaviridae, which affects humans and ruminants in Africa and the Middle East. RFV virus (RVFV) possesses a single-stranded tripartite RNA genome of negative/ambisense polarity. The S segment utilizes the ambisense strategy and codes for two proteins, the N nucleoprotein and the nonstructural NSs protein, in opposite orientations. The two open reading frames (ORFs) are separated by an intergenic… CONTINUE READING
