Viral protein involved in the release of virions from an infected cell to allow cell-to-cell spread of virus. Once assembled at the replication site, viral particles can be released by budding, exocytosis, extrusion or host cell lysis. Some viruses also mediate direct transport of their viral genome to adjacent cells thanks to movement proteins.
