Herpesvirus BBLF1 (IPR020110)

Short name: Herpes_BBLF1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) BBLF1 protein is present in the tegument layer of EBV and is involved in virion maturation. It has been shown to localize to the trans-Golgi network along with gp350/220, a site where final envelopment of EBV particles takes place. BBLF1 shares 13 to 15% amino acid sequence identity with the herpes simplex virus 1 UL11 and cytomegalovirus UL99 tegument proteins, and like theses it is a myristoylated and palmitoylated protein [PMID: 22740416].
