The equilibrium depends upon parameters such as cations in the environment and covalent modifications of DNA. The B-DNA helix has two grooves (one major and one minor) as opposed to the Z-DNA helix which has only a single groove. Beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) A species in the genus Circovirus. Isolated from cockatoos with psittacine beak and feather disease. Causes chronic and often fatal disease in large psittacine birds.

Benevides virus (BENV) A species in the genus Bunyavirus, belonging to the Capim serogroup.
A defective parvovirus that accompanies most avian adenovirus infections in the field, and contaminates most laboratory strains. Some herpesviruses can also provide helper activity to AAAV. Virus is easily isolated from feces or intestinal epithelial cells. 43g/ml. No evidence of pathogenicity has been found, but the presence of AAAV appears to reduce the pathogenicity of avian adenoviruses for 1- to 5-day-old chicks. Humans who work closely with chickens frequently develop antibodies to AAAV, which presumably multiplies with the help of a human adenovirus.
