Baculovirus occlusion-derived virus envelope, E18 (IPR019655)

Short name: Baculo_ODV-E18

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



Baculovirus occlusion-derived virus (ODV) derives its envelope from an intranuclear membrane source. Occlusion-derived viral envelope proteins that are detected in viral-induced intranuclear microvesicles, but not detected in the plasma membrane, cytoplasmic membranes, or the nuclear envelope. This entry represents ODV-E18 protein which is encoded by baculovirus late genes with transcription initiating from a TAAG motif. ODV-E18 exists as a dimer in the ODV envelope, which contains a hydrophobic domain that putatively acts as a target or retention signal for intranuclear microvesicles [PMID: 8091653].
