Hepatitis A Virus
The hepatitis A virus is a picornavirus; it is non-enveloped and contains a single-stranded RNA packaged in a protein shell. There is only one serotype of the virus, but multiple genotypes exist. Codon use within the genome is biased and unusually distinct from its host. It also has a poor internal ribosome entry site. In the region that codes for the HAV capsid, there are highly conserved clusters of rare codons that restrict antigenic variability.
