Enteroviruses are made from four proteins named VP1 to VP4 (VP4 located in the interior).

Enteroviruses are a class of non-enveloped positive single-stranded RNA viruses. Enteroviruses include Coxsackievirus A, Coxsackievirus B, Echovirus, Poliovirus, Rhinovirus, and many others. Person-to-person transmission of enteroviruses occurs through fecal-oral and oral-oral routes. Non-polio enteroviruses are very common (more...)

enterovirus - A genus of RNA viruses which typically enter the body through the respiratory or gastrointestinal systems and sometimes spread to the central nervous system or other parts of the body, causing neurological, cardiac, and other damage. Since the first reports of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), enteroviruses have been suspected as a cause of ME. Enteroviruses have also been implicated as the cause of Type I diabetes, congestive heart failure, and other conditions. Enteroviruses include poliovirus, coxsackieviruses, and many others. New enteroviruses and new strains of existing enteroviruses are continuously being discovered. (Learn more: viralzone.expasy.org)
