ICTV Virus Taxonomy Profile: Thaspiviridae 2021

Abstract : Members of the family Thaspiviridae have linear dsDNA genomes of 27 to 29 kbp and are the first viruses known to infect mesophilic ammonia-oxidizing archaea of the phylum Thaumarchaeota. The spindle-shaped virions of Nitrosopumilus spindle-shaped virus 1 possess short tails at one pole and measure 64±3 nm in diameter and 112±6 nm in length. This morphology is similar to that of members of the families Fuselloviridae and Halspiviridae . Virus replication is not lytic but leads to growth inhibition of the host. This is a summary of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Report on the family Thaspiviridae, which is available at ictv.global/report/thaspiviridae .
