Multivesicular bodies as a platform for formation of the Marburg virus envelope.

The Marburg virus (MARV) envelope consists of a lipid membrane and two major proteins, the matrix protein VP40 and the glycoprotein GP. Both proteins use different intracellular transport pathways: GP utilizes the exocytotic pathway, while VP40 is transported through the retrograde late endosomal pathway. It is currently unknown where the proteins combine… (More)
