Measles virus (MV), also known as rubeola, is an acute viral illness that can be complicated by severe pneumonia, diarrhea, and encephalitis. A paramyxovirus of the genus Morbillivirus, Measles virus is an enveloped and nonsegmented negative-stranded RNA virus. Because it is spread through respiration, measles is highly contagious and airborne precautions should be taken for all suspected cases of measles. After transmission, the virus infects the epithelial cells of its new host, and may also replicate in the urinary tract, conjunctivae, blood vessels, lymphatic system, and central nervous system. The Measles virus contains two envelope glycoproteins, the haemagglutinin (H) and fusion proteins, which are responsible for membrane fusion and attachment. The nucleoprotein of the Measles virus (Measles NP), also known as a nucleocapsid, is the basic architecture of the virus, comprised of a core of nucleic acid captured in a protein coat.
