Article excerpts about the causes of Tick-borne encephalitis:
All flaviviruses (e.g., West Nile [shown here], St. Louis encephalitis, dengue, Japanese encephalitis, tick-borne encephalitis, yellow fever, etc.) share a common size (40-60nm), symmetry (enveloped, icosahedral nucleocapsid), nucleic acid (positive-sense, single stranded RNA approximately 10,000-11,000 bases), and appearance in the electron microscope. Therefore, images of West Nile virus are representative for this group of viruses. (Source: excerpt from West Nile Virus Virology: DVBID)
