Hantaviruses are single-stranded, enveloped, negative sense RNA viruses in the Bunyaviridae family. They normally infect rodents and don't cause disease in these hosts. Humans may become infected with hantaviruses through contact with rodent urine, saliva
For several hantaviruses, the nucleocapsid (N) protein has proven to be very immunogenic in humans and rodents and even can protect rodents against a virus challenge.
