The aim of the European Virus Archive project is to create and mobilise a European network of high calibre centres with the appropriate expertise, to collect, amplify, characterise, standardise, authenticate, distribute and track, mammalian and other exotic viruses. The EVA project is establishing a web-based catalogue to advertise and distribute viruses in the collection as well as associated products. In addition the EVA network also produce associated reagents on demand, to laboratories throughout Europe and also worldwide.

  • Strain: -
  • Isolate: -
  • Lineage: Viruses»ssRNA viruses»ssRNA positive-strand viruses, no DNA stage»Nidovirales»Coronaviridae
  • Biosafety Level: 2

  • Related information on ICTVDB >> ref:
  • Taxonomic Information on NCBI Taxonomy >> Taxonomic ID: 694002
  • Morphology: Virions consist of an envelope and a nucleocapsid. Virus capsid is enveloped. Virions are spherical to pleomorphic measuring (60-)120-160(-200) nm in diameter. Surface projections are evenly dispersed, distinctive club-shaped peplomers that are spaced widely apart covering evenly the surface forming a prominent fringe comprised of S proteins responsible for attachment to cells, hemagglutination and membrane fusion and hemagglutinin esterase proteins (HE) which form short projections in some species. Surface projections are composed of different types of proteins. Surface projections are 12-24 nm long. Capsid/nucleocapsid is elongated with helical symmetry. The nucleocapsid is helical and a width of 9 nm, or 11-13 nm.
  • Segmented Genome: NO
  • Nucleic Acid: Thegenome is not segmented and contains a single molecule of linear positive-sense, single-stranded RNA. The complete genome is 27600-31300 nucleotides long. The 5'-end of the genome has a methylated nucleotide cap. The 3'-terminus has a poly (A) tract.
(*)Customers should note that the BSL assigned to each product in the EVA catalogue relates to the national regulation of the supplying institute. Please be aware there will be differing BSL controls from country to country for certain viruses. EVA's responsibility only extends as far as the international border between supplier and recipient. It is the responsibility of the recipient laboratory to confirm to EVA that appropriate BSL facilities and trained personnel will be available to ensure the safe receipt of all viral products supplied from the EVA catalogue.
