Caption: Scanning electron photomicrograph of polio virions. The poliovirus lives in the human pharynx and intestinal tract. Poliomyelitis is an acute infection that involves the gastrointestinal tract and, occasionally, the central nervous system. It is acquired by fecal-oral transmission. Poliovirus, the causative agent of poliomyelitis, is a human enterovirus and member of the family of Picornaviridae. A single-stranded positive-sense RNA virus. Poliovirus is one of the most well-characterized viruses, and has become a useful model system for understanding the biology of RNA viruses.
