The Semliki Forest virus directs the synthesis of three virus-specific transmembrane proteins p62, 6K, and E1, which all are made in equimolar amounts from a polyprotein precursor molecule. The p62 and E1 spike proteins form heterodimeric complexes in the endoplasmic reticulum before being transported to the cell surface where virus budding occurs. In this study we show that the 6K protein becomes associated to the p62E1 complex in the endoplasmic reticulum and transported with the complex to… CONTINUE READING
