Potex/carlavirus coat protein (IPR000052)

Short name: Pltvir_coat

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



Potexviruses and Carlaviruses are plant-infecting viruses whose genome consist of a single-stranded RNA molecule encapsided in a coat protein. The genome of many Potexviruses is known and their coat protein sequence has been shown to be rather well conserved [PMID: 2738582]. The same observation applies to the coat protein of a variety of Carlaviruses whose sequences are related to those of Potexviruses [PMID: 2732711, PMID: 1629709]. The coat proteins of Potexviruses and of Carlaviruses contain from 190 to 300 amino acid residues. The best conserved region of these coat proteins is located in the central part.
