Short name: Rhabdovirus_ncapsid_N

Overlapping entries

Description

All negative-strand RNA viruses contain a ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complex that consists of the viral genome RNA completely enwrapped by the nucleoprotein (N). The crystal structure of the N protein in complex with a single-strand RNA has been determined for two members of the rhabdovirus family, VSV [PMID: 16778022] and RABV [PMID: 16778023]. The regions in contact with RNA were mapped to a cavity formed between two structural lobes of the nucleoprotein: the N-terminal arm and the extended loop in the C-terminal lobe [PMID: 18003727].

This superfamily represents the N-terminal domain.
