Mechanisms of virus uncoating


Greber, U F; Singh, I; Helenius, A (1994). Mechanisms of virus uncoating. Trends in Microbiology, 2(2):52-56.

Abstract

In a virus particle, the genome is highly condensed and protected by proteins and membrane bilayers. Before it can be replicated in a new host cell, uncoating must take place. Recent studies on enveloped and nonenveloped animal viruses indicate that uncoating occurs through complex, multistep processes triggered by virus-host-cell interactions.
