Transport and protection of the nuclear-replicating double-stranded DNA genome of herpesviruses is accomplished by the virion and its substructures. Studies of the composition, organization, and formation of these particles have provided insight into the molecular mechanisms of virus assembly, leads for antiviral strategies, and information about cellular processes that are required for, resemble, or antagonize virus replication. This chapter updates earlier reviews on the structure and… CONTINUE READING
