|Group:||Group III (dsRNA)|
Sedoreovirinae (sedo = smooth) is a subfamily of the Reoviridae family of viruses. Viruses in this subfamily are distinguished by the absence of a turreted protein on the inner capsid to produce a smooth surface.
Like other members of the Reoviridae family, viruses of the Sedoreovirinae subfamily are made of naked, icosahedral capsids containing 10-12 segments of linear double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). The Baltimore System of viral classification categorizes Reoviridae in Group III.
Viruses classified in the Sedoreovirinae subfamily infect a wide range of plants and animals, including some that can infect humans. There is not only the potential of a few of these viruses to cause human disease, but also to reduce the supply of crops and livestock.
Arboviruses containing dsRNA are placed in this genus. Some Orbivirus infect livestock with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Includes: Bluetongue virus, African horse sickness virus, Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus, among others.
