General annotation (Comments)

Function

Outer capsid protein involved in attachment and possibly entry into the host epithelial cell. It is subsequently lost, together with VP4, following virus entry into the host cell. The outer layer contains 780 copies of VP7, grouped as 260 trimers. Rotavirus attachment and entry into the host cell probably involves multiple sequential contacts between the outer capsid proteins VP4 and VP7, and the cell receptors. In integrin-dependent strains, VP7 seems to essentially target the integrin heterodimers ITGAX/ITGB2 and ITGA5/ITGB3 at a postbinding stage, once the initial attachment by VP4 has been achieved By similarity.

Subunit structure

Homotrimer; in the presence of calcium By similarity. Acquisition of the capsid outer layer requires a high calcium concentration inside the endoplasmic reticulum. Following cell entry, the low calcium concentration in the cytoplasm is probably responsible for the solubilization of the outer layer. Interacts with host integrin heterodimers ITGAX/ITGB2 and ITGA5/ITGB3 By similarity.

Subcellular location

Virion By similarity. Host endoplasmic reticulum lumen Potential. Note: Immature double-layered particles assembled in the cytoplasm bud across the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum, acquiring during this process a transient lipid membrane that is modified with the ER resident viral glycoproteins NSP4 and VP7; these enveloped particles also contain VP4. As the particles move towards the interior of the ER cisternae, the transient lipid membrane and the non-structural protein NSP4 are lost, while the virus surface proteins VP4 and VP7 rearrange to form the outermost virus protein layer, yielding mature infectious triple-layered particles By similarity.

Post-translational modification

The N-terminus is blocked possibly by pyroglutamic acid By similarity.

N-glycosylated By similarity.

Intramolecular disulfide bonds By similarity.

Miscellaneous

In group A rotaviruses, VP7 defines the G serotype.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the rotavirus VP7 family.

Alternative products

This entry describes 2 isoforms produced by alternative initiation. [Align] [Select]
Isoform 1 (identifier: Q08779-1)

This isoform has been chosen as the 'canonical' sequence. All positional information in this entry refers to it. This is also the sequence that appears in the downloadable versions of the entry.
Isoform 2 (identifier: Q08779-2)

The sequence of this isoform differs from the canonical sequence as follows:
     1-29: Missing.
Note: Produced by alternative initiation at Met-30 of isoform 1. No experimental confirmation available.
