How viruses manage to resist physical and chemical stress and yet open their protective coats during cell infection has been a longstanding, fundamental question. A study with the DNA tumour virus SV40 now shows that protein folding and quality-control factors of the endoplasmic reticulum reshuffle disulfide bonds within the viral capsid, providing a molecular mechanism for the exit of infectious virions from the endoplasmic reticulum.
