General annotation (Comments)

Function

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 By similarity.

Subunit structure

Homooligomer. Homomultimerizes to form the nucleocapsid. Binds to viral genomic RNA. Interacts with VP35 and VP30 to form the nucleocapsid. Also interacts with VP24 and VP40 By similarity.

Subcellular location

Virion. Host cytoplasm By similarity.

Domain

This protein can be divided into a hydrophobic N-terminal half, and a hydrophilic and highly acidic C-terminal half By similarity.

Post-translational modification

Phosphorylated and O-glycosylated by host By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the filoviruses nucleoprotein family.
