Caulimovirus virion-associated protein (IPR004986)

Short name: Caulimo_virion-assoc

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



The gene III product of cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) is known as virion-associated protein or P3. It is a DNA binding protein in which the DNA binding activity is located on its C-terminal part [PMID: 16453711]. The C-terminal amino acids have also been shown to interact with the C-terminal half of the viral coat protein [PMID: 11324752]. A family of related proteins is expressed by other members of the Caulimoviridae.
