Assembly and intracellular localization of the bluetongue virus core protein VP3.


The bluetongue virus (BTV) core protein VP3 plays a crucial role in the virion assembly and replication process. Although the structure of the protein is well characterized, much less is known about the intracellular processing and localization of the protein in the infected host cell. In BTV-infected cells, newly synthesized viral core particles accumulate… (More)
