- A family of small viruses containing single-stranded DNA. Virions are 18–26 nm in diameter, are not enveloped, and are ether-resistant. Capsids are of cubic symmetry, with 32 capsomeres. Replication and assembly occur in the nucleus of infected cells. Three genera in the subfamily Parvovirinae are recognized: Parvovirus, Erythrovirus, and Dependovirus, which includes the adeno-associated virus. A second subfamily, Densovirinae, has 3 additional genera, all of which infect arthropods.

* * *Par·vo·vi·ri·dae (pahr″vo-virґĭ-de) the parvoviruses: a family of DNA viruses having a nonenveloped virion 18â€“26 nm in diameter composed of 60 copies of the capsid protein with icosahedral symmetry. The genome consists of a single molecule of linear single-stranded DNA (MW 1.5â€“2.2 Ð§ 106, size 4â€“6 kb). Viruses contain 2â€“4 major polypeptides, depending on the species, and are resistant to heat, lipid solvents, deoxycholate, and nucleases but sensitive to formalin, β-propiolactone, hydroxylamine, oxidizing agents, and ultraviolet radiation. Replication and assembly occur in the nucleus and require S-phase cellular function in the host cell or the presence of helper virus. Host range is narrow and transmission may be vertical or by mechanical vectors. There are two subclasses: Densovirinae, comprising genera that infect invertebrates, and Parvovirinae, comprising genera that infect vertebrates.
