Protein namei

  • Recommended name:
    Triplex capsid protein 2

Gene namei

  • Name:TRX2

Sequence similaritiesi

Subunit structurei

  • Interacts with TRX1 and major capisd protein/MCP.

Subcellular locationi

Functioni

  • Structural component of the T=16 icosahedral capsid. The capsid is composed of pentamers and hexamers of major capsid protein/MCP, which are linked together by heterotrimers called triplexes. These triplexes are formed by a single molecule of triplex protein 1/TRX1 and two copies of triplex protein 2/TRX2. Additionally, TRX1 is required for efficient transport of TRX2 to the nucleus, which is the site of capsid assembly.
