Acheta Domesticus Volvovirus, a Novel Single-Stranded Circular DNA Virus of the House Cricket

Hanh T Pham et al. Genome Announc.

Abstract

The genome of a novel virus of the house cricket consists of a 2,517-nucleotide (nt) circular single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) molecule with 4 open reading frames (ORFs). One ORF had a low identity to circovirus nucleotide sequences (NS). The unique properties of this volvovirus suggested that it belongs to a new virus family or genus.
