Rhabdovirus matrix protein M (IPR006870)

Short name: Rhabdo_M

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Matrix (M) protein is an important structural component of rhabdovirus virions, and also plays a number of roles during the replication cycle of the virus [PMID: 19112510]. It is involved in condensing and targeting the ribonucleoprotein (RNP) coil to the plasma membrane. M interacts specifically with the transmembrane spike protein (G) and it is important for the incorporation of G protein into budding virions [PMID: 9847327].
