Virus assembly and disassembly: the adenovirus cysteine protease as a trigger factor.


Greber, U F (1998). Virus assembly and disassembly: the adenovirus cysteine protease as a trigger factor. Reviews in Medical Virology, 8(4):213-222.

Abstract

Viruses are efficient carriers of genetic material between cells. They specifically recognise a target cell and utilise host functions for genome delivery to the replication site. A mature viral capsid emerging from an infected cell serves at least three distinct functions. It enables virus egress from the infected cell, protects the extracellular genome against chemical and physical stress and mediates virus entry into a non-infected cell. How can a virus particle be stably assembled in an infected cell and moments later-after passing through the extracellular milieu-be disintegrated by a non-infected cell? In this review I discuss how adenovirus, a DNA virus, recruits cellular and viral factors and makes use of its own cysteine protease to regulate capsid assembly and disassembly.

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.
