Picorna-like virus particles, 29 nm in diameter, were purified from apparently healthy Fallen. The virus particles had a buoyant density of 1.352 g/ml in CsCl and a sedimentation coefficient of 161 . The virus capsid proteins consisted of three major polypeptides of s 36500, 33000 and 28000, and three minor polypeptides. The virus contained a major ssRNA of 2.8 × 10 and was also frequently associated with a minor dsRNA of 4×10. The 3′ end of the ssRNA had a poly(A) tract of about 60 adenine residues. The virus has been provisionally named himetobi P virus.
