Protein
Nucleoprotein
Gene
NP
Organism
Zaire ebolavirus (strain Mayinga-76) (ZEBOV) (Zaire Ebola virus)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 4 out of 5 - Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Encapsidates the genome, protecting it from nucleases. The encapsidated genomic RNA is termed the nucleocapsid and serves as template for transcription and replication. During replication, encapsidation by NP is coupled to RNA synthesis and all replicative products are resistant to nucleases.
