The capsid (C) protein of rubella virus is translated from a 24S subgenomic mRNA as the first part of a polyprotein containing all three structural proteins of the virus. It is separated from the following protein (E2) by signal peptidase, which cleaves after the E2 signal sequence. We raised an antipeptide antiserum directed against the signal sequence and used the antiserum to show that this sequence is still a part of the C protein in the mature virion. Furthermore, we also showed that, when… CONTINUE READING
