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.
