Homologous Superfamily

Flavivirus capsid protein C superfamily (IPR037172)

Short name: Flavi_capsidC_sf

Overlapping entries


The capsid protein C plays a role in virus budding by binding to the cell membrane and gathering the viral RNA into a nucleocapsid that forms the core of a mature virus particle [PMID: 14993605, PMID: 12768036].

This superfamily represents the Flavivirus capsid protein C. Its core structure is composed of five helices with right-handed superhelix and swapped dimer with the two long C-terminal helices.
