enveloped viruses

Cytomegalovirus - CMV
(enveloped virus)

 

 

These viruses have glycoproteins on their envelope, which are potential targets for external influences.

Cytomegalovirus is an icosahedral capsid (spherical shape). The enveloped virus belongs to the Herpesviridae family.

Cytomegalovirus infection causes cytomegalic inclusion disease, which particularly poses a high risk to foetuses and new-born babies. It may cause neurological deficits or damage inner organs. 

The main transmission path is direct or indirect contact with contaminated persons or objects.
