Name Coronavirus envelope (CoV E) protein
Function Coronavirus envelope (CoV E) proteins are involved in several aspects of the virus' life cycle, such as assembly, budding, envelope formation, and pathogenesis. They are ~100-residue-long polypeptides that are minor components in virions but are abundantly expressed inside infected cells. They are localized mainly to the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi- complex where they participate in the assembly, budding, and intracellular trafficking of infectious virions.
Scope(s) Viruses
Example(s) P09048 (VEMP_CVPPU);

Propagated annotation [?]

Comments [?]

FUNCTIONPlays a central role in virus morphogenesis and assembly. Acts as a viroporin and self-assembles in host membranes forming pentameric protein-lipid pores that allow ion transport. Also plays a role in the induction of apoptosis.
SUBUNITHomopentamer. Interacts with membrane protein M in the budding compartment of the host cell, which is located between endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi complex. Interacts with Nucleoprotein.
