Initiation of hepatitis C virus infection requires the dynamic microtubule network: role of the viral nucleocapsid protein.

Abstract

Early events leading to the establishment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection are not completely understood. We show that intact and dynamic microtubules play a key role in the initiation of productive HCV infection. Microtubules were required for virus entry into cells, as evidenced using virus pseudotypes presenting HCV envelope proteins on their surface… (More)
