The crystal structure of bluetongue virus VP7.

Abstract:

Bluetongue virus (BTV), a representative of the orbivirus genus of the Reoviridae, is considerably larger (at 80 nm across), and structurally more complex, than any virus for which we have comprehensive structural information. Orbiviruses infect mammalian hosts through insect vectors and cause economically important diseases of domesticated animals. They possess a segmented double-stranded RNA genome within a capsid composed of four major types of polypeptide chains. An outer layer of VP2 and...
