VIROLOGY

Mumps virus is a paramyxovirus, and only one antigenic type is known. Like fellow members of its genus, it contains single-stranded, negative-sense RNA surrounded by an envelope. There are two glycoproteins on the surface of the envelope; one mediates neuraminidase and hemagglutination activity, and the other is responsible for lipid membrane fusion to the host cell.
