Interaction of frog virus 3 with the cytomatrix. IV. Phosphorylation of vimentin precedes the reorganization of intermediate filaments around the virus assembly sites.

Abstract

Frog virus 3 (FV3) assembles in morphologically distinct assembly sites in the cytoplasm of infected cells. As the assembly sites form, the intermediate filaments (IF) aggregate, delimit the assembly sites, and remain so throughout infection. To determine the molecular basis of reorganization of IF, we analysed the vimentin of uninfected and FV3-infected… (More)
