None.

Description

Flaviviruses are small enveloped viruses with virions comprised of three proteins called C, M and E [PMID: 8676481, PMID: 7913359, PMID: 8437237]. The envelope glycoprotein M is made as a precursor, called prM. The precursor portion of the protein is the signal peptide for the proteins entry into the membrane. prM is cleaved to form M in a late-stage cleavage event. Associated with this cleavage is a change in the infectivity and fusion activity of the virus.
