Genome

The genome itself is arranged in a linear pattern and is about 15-16kb in length.

SLAMF1

CD150
Specifically, CD150 acts as a receptor for viral entry into the cell.

Poliovirus receptor-related 1

PVRL1nectin-1CD111
Another newly discovered cellular receptor called PVRL4 allows for morbillivirus entry into bronchial epithelial cells and keratinocytes.

RNA

ribonucleic aciddsRNAdouble-stranded RNA
Since this virus possesses a negative-sense RNA genome, its replication and transcription cycles follow that of the negative-RNA genome.

RNA-dependent RNA polymerase

replicaseRNA replicaseRNA dependent RNA polymerase
RNA-dependent RNA polymerase binds the 3’ end of the viral genome and begins transcription, regularly identifying start and stop signals along the way which edge the genes.

This virus is often affiliated with tubulointerstitial nephritis in domestic cats.

Cauxin

Cauxin plays a role in the production of felinine and glycine, which act as feline pheromones; cats use these as territorial markers.

Glycine
