Inner layer core protein VP3, Orbivirus (IPR002614)

Short name: Inner_layer_core_VP3_Orbivir

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This entry represents the inner layer core protein VP3 from Orbiviruses, a family of Reoviruses that have dsRNA genomes of 10-12 linear segments [PMID: 9774103]. Orbiviruses include Broadhaven virus (BRD), Epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus and Bluetongue virus (BTV) [PMID: 1328474]. The Orbivirus VP3 protein is part of the virus core and makes a 'subcore' shell made up of 120 copies of the 100K protein [PMID: 9774103]. VP3 particles can also bind RNA and are fundamental in the early stages of viral core formation [PMID: 9774103]. The structural core protein VP2 from BRD is similar to VP3 from BTV.
