Domain

Coat protein, C-terminal, Carmoviral (IPR013669)

Short name: Coat_prot_C_Carmovir

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found to the C terminus of the IPR000937 domain in Carmoviruses. The coat protein of the Turnip crinkle virus (TCV; Tombusviridae) is a suppressor of RNA silencing and is required for cell to cell movement in its host [PMID: 18533829]. The plant cellular trafficking machinery could hijack functional viral proteins to permit cell-to-cell movement of RNA silencing [PMID: 18515824]. The 3'-proximal coat protein is coded by ORF4 [PMID: 17657600].
