Genome organisation of Paramyxovirus and Pneumovirus genera. The nucleoprotein (N), phosphoprotein (P), matrix (M) protein, fusion (F) protein, and RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (L), are conserved in this order among the viruses belonging to both families. The attachment protein (H, HN, or G), differs amongst the viruses depending on haemagglutinin (H) presence, haemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) activity, or neither H present or HN activity (G). Only three genera contain the small hydrophobic SH protein, while both genera belonging to the Pneumovirinae subfamily (Pneumovirus and Metapneumovirus) also possess M2, NS1, and NS2 genes. However, gene positions vary between the Pneumovirus and Metapneumovirus genera
