The matrix protein VP40 from Ebola virus is targeted to the plasma membrane, where it is thought to induce assembly and budding of virions through its association with the lipid bilayer. Ebola virus VP40 is expressed as a monomeric molecule in solution, consisting of two loosely associated domains. Here we show that a C-terminal truncation of seven residues(More)
We have analysed the expression and cellular localisation of the matrix protein VP40 from Ebola virus. Full-length VP40 and an N-terminal truncated construct missing the first 31 residues [VP40(31-326)] both locate to the plasma membrane of 293T cells when expressed transiently, while a C-terminal truncation of residues 213 to 326 [VP40(31-212)] shows only(More)
