Organism
Human herpesvirus 1 (strain R15) (HHV-1) (Human herpes simplex virus 1)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 3 out of 5-Protein inferred from homologyi

Functioni

Glycoprotein that probably modulates membrane fusion events during secondary envelopment of cytoplasmic capsids that bud into specific trans-Golgi network (TGN)-derived membranes. Also plays a role, together with gB, in virus-induced cell-to-cell fusion (syncytia formation). Seems to block fusion of virions with infected-cell membranes (By similarity).By similarity

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Interacts (via UL20 interaction region) with protein UL20 (via N-terminus); this interaction probably plays a role in the coordinate transport of protein UL20 and gK to the trans-Golgi network (TGN), and is required for the cell surface expression of gK.By similarity
