Rotavirus major outer capsid VP7 (IPR008818)

Short name: Rotavirus_VP7

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family consists of several Rotavirus major outer capsid protein VP7 sequences. The rotavirus capsid is composed of three concentric protein layers. Proteins VP4 and VP7 comprise the outer layer. VP4 forms spikes and is the viral attachment protein. VP7 is a glycoprotein and the major constituent of the outer protein layer [PMID: 12050377].
