Mengovirus is a small RNA virus, approximately 27 mµ in diameter, containing only RNA and protein, according to the analyses of Faulkner et al. on the closely related encephalomyocarditis (EMC) virus. It is a member of the Columbia SK group of viruses which we have been studying in detail in recent years.
