Flaviviruses by Karl Maramorosch

Book Description

Over 50 per cent of known flaviviruses have been associated with human disease. The Flavivirus genus constitutes some of the most serious human pathogens including Japanese encephalitis, dengue and yellow fever. Flaviviruses are known for their complex life cycles and epidemic spread, and are considered a globally-emergent viral threat. "Structure, Replication and Evolution" is the first volume of "The Flaviviruses" and presents the latest research covering the conceptual advances on aspects such as the characterization of virus structure, cellular receptors, mechanisms of virus entry, host and viral components of the RNA replicase. It includes new, detailed information on the evolution, viral structure and replication of the Flavivirus family. It is the only complete reference book on a major virus family. It describes the technologies that have contributed to our current knowledge about Flaviviruses. It identifies the major problems faced in understanding the virus-host interactions that result in disease.
