Orbivirus inner capsid protein VP7, N-terminal (IPR023176)

Short name: Orbi_VP7_capsid_N

Overlapping entries


The bluetongue virus (BTV) is a representative of the orbivirus genus of the Reoviridae. The crystal structure of VP7 from BTV serotype 10 reveals that the central one third of the polypeptide chain (residues 121-249) is folded into a beta-sandwich. The rest of the polypeptide (residues 1-120 and 250-349) is composed of nine alpha-helices and long extended loops [PMID: 7816101].

This superfamily represents the N-terminal domain, consisting of five alpha-helices.
