Keyword - Viral primary envelope fusion with host outer nuclear membrane (KW-1181)

Keywords navigation



Viral protein implicated in fusion of the herpesviruses' primary envelope with the host outer nuclear membrane during egress. During egress, herpesviruses acquire a transitory, primary envelope as they bud at the inner nuclear membrane and gain access to the perinuclear space. This membrane is lost by fusing with the outer nuclear membrane during nuclear exit.
