|Title:||Molecular studies of the replication mechanisms of coronavirus||Authors:||Wang, Jibin||Keywords:||DRNTU::Science::Biological sciences||Issue Date:||2007||Source:||Wang, J. B. (2007). Molecular studies of the replication mechanisms of coronavirus. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||Coronavirus M protein is an essential component of virions and plays pivotal roles in virion assembly, budding and maturation. The M protein is integrated into the viral envelope with three transmembrane domains flanked by a short amino-terminal ectodomain and a large carboxy-terminal endodomain. To understand the cellular factors that may be involved in virion assembly, budding and maturation processes, the M protein from coronavirus infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) was used as a bait in a yeast two-hybrid screen, resulting in the identification of -Actin as a potentially interacting partner. This interaction was subsequent confirmed by coimmunoprecipitation and immunofluorescence in mammalian cells, and mutation of amino acids A159 and K160 in the M protein abolished the interaction.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/6574||DOI:||10.32657/10356/6574||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
