Abstract In this chapter, four miscellaneous negative-strand RNA viruses are covered briefly with emphasis on the genome structure: paramyxoviruses, filoviruses, bunyaviruses, and arenaviruses. Paramyxoviruses and filoviruses belong to the order Mononegavirales, having one negative-strand RNA genome, while bunyaviruses and arenaviruses belong to the order Multinegavirales, having a multiple negative-strand RNA genome. Sendai viruses are the prototype of paramyxoviruses and Ebola virus is…

The recent genetic and structural advances that have revealed important insights into the composition of orthobunyavirus virions, viral transcription and replication and viral interactions with the host innate immune response are described.
An Ebola whole-virus vaccine is protective in nonhuman primates
It is demonstrated that a whole Ebola virus (EBOV) vaccine based on a replication-defective, peroxide-treated whole-virus vaccine candidate for Ebola shows promise in macaques, and represents a safe, efficacious, whole-E BOV vaccine candidates in that it presents all viral proteins and the viral RNA to the host immune system, which might contribute to protective immune responses.
