Functioni

GP1 is responsible for binding to the receptor(s) on target cells. Interacts with CD209/DC-SIGN and CLEC4M/DC-SIGNR which act as cofactors for virus entry into the host cell. Binding to CD209 and CLEC4M, which are respectively found on dendritic cells (DCs), and on endothelial cells of liver sinusoids and lymph node sinuses, facilitate infection of macrophages and endothelial cells. These interactions not only facilitate virus cell entry, but also allow capture of viral particles by DCs and subsequent transmission to susceptible cells without DCs infection (trans infection). Binding to the macrophage specific lectin CLEC10A also seem to enhance virus infectivity. Interaction with FOLR1/folate receptor alpha may be a cofactor for virus entry in some cell types, although results are contradictory. Members of the Tyro3 receptor tyrosine kinase family also seem to be cell entry factors in filovirus infection. Once attached, the virions are internalized through clathrin-dependent endocytosis and/or macropinocytosis. After internalization of the virus into the endosomes of the host cell, proteolysis of GP1 by two cysteine proteases, CTSB/cathepsin B and CTSL/cathepsin L presumably induces a conformational change of GP2, unmasking its fusion peptide and initiating membranes fusion.8 Publications
GP2 acts as a class I viral fusion protein. Under the current model, the protein has at least 3 conformational states: pre-fusion native state, pre-hairpin intermediate state, and post-fusion hairpin state. During viral and target cell membrane fusion, the coiled coil regions (heptad repeats) assume a trimer-of-hairpins structure, positioning the fusion peptide in close proximity to the C-terminal region of the ectodomain. The formation of this structure appears to drive apposition and subsequent fusion of viral and target cell membranes. Responsible for penetration of the virus into the cell cytoplasm by mediating the fusion of the membrane of the endocytosed virus particle with the endosomal membrane. Low pH in endosomes induces an irreversible conformational change in GP2, releasing the fusion hydrophobic peptide.8 Publications
GP1,2 mediates endothelial cell activation and decreases endothelial barrier function. Mediates activation of primary macrophages. At terminal stages of the viral infection, when its expression is high, GP1,2 down-modulates the expression of various host cell surface molecules that are essential for immune surveillance and cell adhesion. Down-modulates integrins ITGA1, ITGA2, ITGA3, ITGA4, ITGA5, ITGA6, ITGAV and ITGB1. GP1,2 alters the cellular recycling of the dimer alpha-V/beta-3 via a dynamin-dependent pathway. Decrease in the host cell surface expression of various adhesion molecules may lead to cell detachment, contributing to the disruption of blood vessel integrity and hemorrhages developed during Ebola virus infection (cytotoxicity). This cytotoxicity appears late in the infection, only after the massive release of viral particles by infected cells. Down-modulation of host MHC-I, leading to altered recognition by immune cells, may explain the immune suppression and inflammatory dysfunction linked to Ebola infection. Also down-modulates EGFR surface expression.8 Publications
GP2delta is part of the complex GP1,2delta released by host ADAM17 metalloprotease. This secreted complex may play a role in the pathogenesis of the virus by efficiently blocking the neutralizing antibodies that would otherwise neutralize the virus surface glycoproteins GP1,2. Might therefore contribute to the lack of inflammatory reaction seen during infection in spite the of extensive necrosis and massive virus production. GP1,2delta does not seem to be involved in activation of primary macrophages.8 Publications

N-glycosylated.1 Publication

Palmitoylation of GP2 is not required for its function.1 Publication
Specific enzymatic cleavages in vivo yield mature proteins. The precursor is processed into GP1 and GP2 by host cell furin in the trans Golgi, and maybe by other host proteases, to yield the mature GP1 and GP2 proteins. The cleavage site corresponds to the furin optimal cleavage sequence [KR]-X-[KR]-R. This cleavage does not seem to be required for function. After the internalization of the virus into cell endosomes, GP1 C-terminus is removed by the endosomal proteases cathepsin B, cathepsin L, or both, leaving a 19-kDa N-terminal fragment which is further digested by cathepsin B. Proteolytic processing of GP1,2 by host ADAM17 can remove the transmembrane anchor of GP2 and leads to shedding of complexes consisting in GP1 and truncated GP2 (GP1,2delta).

Homotrimer; each monomer consists of a GP1 and a GP2 subunit linked by disulfide bonds. The resulting peplomers (GP1,2) protrude from the virus surface as spikes. GP1 and GP2delta are part of GP1,2delta soluble complexes released by ectodomain shedding. GP1,2 interacts with host integrin ITGAV/alpha-V and CLEC10A.

Sequence cautioni

The sequence AAA96744.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Frameshift at position 296.

RNA editingi

Partially edited. RNA editing at this position consists of an insertion of one or two adenine nucleotides. The sequence displayed here is the full-length transmembrane glycoprotein GP, derived from the +1A edited RNA. The unedited RNA gives rise to the small secreted glycoprotein sGP (AC P60170), the +2A edited RNA gives rise to the super small secreted glycoprotein ssGP (AC Q9YMG2).2 Publications
