The influenza virus replicates in the host cell nucleus, and the progeny viral ribonucleoprotein complex (vRNP) is exported to the cytoplasm prior to maturation. NS2 has a nuclear export signal that mediates the nuclear export of vRNP by the vRNP-M1-NS2 complex. We previously reported that the heat shock cognate 70 (Hsc70) protein binds to M1 protein and(More)
The influenza virus genome replicates in the host cell nucleus, and the progeny viral ribonucleoproteins (vRNPs) are exported to the cytoplasm prior to maturation. The influenza virus NS2 protein has a nuclear export signal (NES) and binds to M1. It is therefore postulated that vRNP is exported from the nucleus by binding to NS2 through M1. However, the(More)
