Implication of ICP0 translocation and peroxisome functions in the inhibition of HSV-1 by the antiviral protein RC28 from the higher Basidiomycetes mushroom Rozites caperata.

Abstract

RC28 an antiviral protein of MW 28.25 kD isolated from the edible mushroom Rozites caperata (RC) (=Cortinarius caperatus), was tested for its ability to block HSV-1 functions. The protein blocked the translocation of the immediate early protein ICP0 from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. Target studies using an array of yeast proteins revealed that the protein… (More)
