Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is one of the most important pathogens of acute viral hepatitis prevailing in developing countries. There are four major genotypes of mammalian HEV, genotype 1 and 2 are restricted to human infection, and induce epidemic hepatitis E which is mainly transmitted by contaminated water; whereas genotype 3 and 4 are zoonotic causing sporadic cases which are common in developed countries. In recent years, much more attention has been paid to the structures of viral genes and the functions of viral proteins. The research progress achieved in such field will help us uncover the veil of HEV in pathogenesis and infection.
