The nucleoprotein (NP) of Marburg virus (MARV) is responsible for the encapsidation of viral genomic RNA and the formation of the helical nucleocapsid precursors that accumulate in intracellular inclusions in infected cells. To form the large helical MARV nucleocapsid, NP needs to interact with itself and the viral proteins VP30, VP35 and L, which are also(More)
Phosphorylation of the Marburg virus nucleoprotein NP is distributed over 7 regions (I-VII) in its C-terminus. The exact localization of phosphorylated amino acids and function of NP phosphorylation are unknown. Here, we show that the major phosphate acceptor sites in NP region II are serine 446 and serines 453-455; the latter are located in a cluster of 6(More)
