Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) is a tick-borne virus of the genus Nairovirus and the family Bunyaviridae. It is a negative-strand RNA virus comprised of small (S), medium (M), and large (L) genome segments. The S segment encodes for nucleocapsid protein, the M segment codes for envelope glycoproteins (Gn and Gc), and the L segment codes for the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. Currently, there are a limited number of methods for rapidly diagnosing CCHFV infections. We developed a… CONTINUE READING
