Assembly and budding of enveloped RNA viruses rely on viral matrix (M) proteins and host proteins involved in sorting and vesiculation of cellular cargoes, such as the endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT). The measles virus (MV) M protein promotes virus-like particle (VLP) production, and we now show that it shares association with(More)
Transmission of measles virus (MV) to T cells by its early CD150(+) target cells is considered to be crucial for viral dissemination within the hematopoietic compartment. Using cocultures involving monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DCs) and T cells, we now show that T cells acquire MV most efficiently from cis-infected DCs rather than DCs having trapped MV(More)
Viral entry, compartmentalization and transmission depend on the formation of membrane lipid/protein microdomains concentrating receptors and signalosomes. Dendritic cells (DCs) are prime targets for measles virus (MV) infection, and this interaction promotes immune activation and generalized immunosuppression, yet also MV transport to secondary lymphatics(More)
