Protein Information
Function 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 (By similarity). During virus entry, may induce genome penetration into the host cytoplasm after hemifusion induced by the surface proteins (By similarity). Can migrate to the cell nucleus where it modulates host functions (By similarity). Overcomes the anti-viral effects of host EXOC1 by sequestering and degrading the latter through the proteasome degradation pathway (PubMed:23522008).
Cellular Location Capsid protein C: Virion {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763}. Host nucleus {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763}. Host cytoplasm. Host cytoplasm, host perinuclear region Small envelope protein M: Virion membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P03314}; Multi-pass membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P03314}. Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P03314}; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=ER membrane retention is mediated by the transmembrane domains. {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P03314} Non-structural protein 1: Secreted {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763}. Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Lumenal side {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763}. Note=Located in RE-derived vesicles hosting the replication complex {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9Q6P4} Serine protease subunit NS2B: Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763} Non-structural protein 4A: Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P14335}; Multi-pass membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763}. Note=Located in RE-associated vesicles hosting the replication complex {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763} RNA-directed RNA polymerase NS5: Host endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763}. Host nucleus. Note=Located in RE-associated vesicles hosting the replication complex. NS5 protein is mainly localized in the nucleus rather than in ER vesicles {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P17763}

West Nile Virus Matrix 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. However, when the viruses are inside of infected cells, the matrix protein exists in its "pre-M" form as a heterodimer with the envelope proteins. Cleavage of the "pre-M" protein to its mature form occurs during release of the virus; this cleavage leas to the dissociation of the heterodimers. The WNV receptor has recently been identified as alpha v beta 3 integrin.
