Alphaherpesvirinae is a subfamily of Herpesviridae primarily distinguished by reproducing more quickly than other subfamilies of Herpesviridae. In animal virology the most important herpesviruses belong to the Alphaherpesvirinae. Pseudorabies virus is the causative agent of Aujeszky's disease in pigs and bovine herpesvirus 1 is the causative agent of bovine infectious rhinotracheitis and pustular vulvovaginitis.cite book |chapterurl=http://www.horizonpress.com/avir|author=Mettenleiter et al|year=2008|chapter=Molecular Biology of Animal Herpesviruses|title=Animal Viruses: Molecular Biology|publisher=Caister Academic Press|id= [http://www.horizonpress.com/avir ISBN 978-1-904455-22-6] ] cite book | author = Sandri-Goldin RM (editor). | title = Alpha Herpesviruses: Molecular and Cellular Biology | publisher = Caister Academic Press | year = 2006 | url=http://www.horizonpress.com/ahv | id = [http://www.horizonpress.com/ahv ISBN 978-1-904455-09-7 ] ]
