Vaccinia Virus Egress: Actin OUT with ClathrIN

Florian I Schmidt, Jason Mercer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


To ensure spread from one cell to another, exocytosed vaccinia virions recruit cellular actin polymerization machinery to blast off from the cell surface on actin tails. Humphries et al. (2012) now show that the virus exploits clathrin to organize viral factors into a launch pad that facilitates efficient actin tail formation.
