Intracellular Virus Trafficking Reveals Physiological Characteristics of the Cytoskeleton.


Stidwill, R P; Greber, U F (2000). Intracellular Virus Trafficking Reveals Physiological Characteristics of the Cytoskeleton. News in Physiological Sciences, 15(2):67-71.

Abstract

Virus particles that infect eukaryotic cells can take advantage of the cytoskeleton and associated motors to translocate through the cytoplasm. Depending on the virus, motor proteins are recruited or, alternatively, cytoskeletal elements are induced to polymerize onto viral structures. Here we review recent advances toward understanding the roles of the cytoskeleton in virus trafficking.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
