Satellite virus coat (IPR010392)

Short name: Satellite_virus_coat

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry represents coat proteins found in several satellite viruses, including satellite panicum mosaic virus [PMID: 7552713], satellite tobacco necrosis virus, and satellite St. Augustine decline virus. The coat proteins of satellite viruses consist of a beta-sandwich jelly-roll fold, with usually eight strands making up the two sheets, although some members can have an extra 1-2 strands. The characteristic interaction between the domains of this fold allows the formation of five-fold and pseudo six-fold assemblies. Although the satellite virus coat proteins share the same jelly-roll fold, they differ in the arrangement of their secondary structural elements and in the interactions of adjacent subunits [PMID: 8553559].
