Newcastle Disease Virus - Paramyxoviruses

Newcastle disease is a contagious bird disease affecting many domestic and wild avian species; it is transmissible to humans. Newcastle has a negative-sense, single-stranded genome which codes for a RNA-directed RNA polymerase, hemagglutinin-neuraminidase protein, fusion protein, matrix protein, phosphoprotein and nucleoprotein in the 5' to 3' direction.
