Protein Information
Function Capsid protein C self-assembles to form an icosahedral capsid about 30 nm in diameter. The capsid encapsulates the genomic RNA.
Cellular Location Capsid protein C: Virion. Host membrane; Single-pass membrane protein Envelope protein E: Virion membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00860}; Multi-pass membrane protein Non-structural protein 2A: Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00860}; Multi- pass membrane protein Serine protease NS3: Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00860}; Peripheral membrane protein {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00860}; Cytoplasmic side {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00860}. Note=Remains non-covalently associated to NS3 protease. {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00860} Non-structural protein 4B: Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00860}; Multi- pass membrane protein

West Nile Virus Core Antibody: West Nile Virus (WNV) is a member of the Flaviviridae, a plus-stranded virus family that includes St. Louis encephalitis virus, yellow fever virus, and Dengue virus. WNV was initially isolated in 1937 in the West Nile region of Uganda and has become prevalent in Africa, Asia, and Europe. It has rapidly spread across the United States with cases being observed in every continental state. Virus particles consist of a dense core made up of the core/capsid protein encapsulating the RNA genome surrounded by a membrane envelope embedded with envelope and matrix proteins which play a major role for WNV entry into target cells. The viral core protein is thought to contribute to the WNV-associated inflammation via apoptosis induced though the caspase-9 pathway as delivery of core gene delivery into the striatum of mouse brain and skeletal muscle resulted in cell death and inflammation.
