Remodeling Nuclear Architecture Allows Efficient Transport of Herpesvirus Capsids by Diffusion

January 11, 2018

Presented by  Ian Hogue, PhD, Assistant Professor, Biodesign Center for Immunotherapeutics, Vaccines and Virology Virus particles have evolved to make themselves cargoes of intracellular trafficking mechanisms. For example, alpha herpesvirus particles recruit microtubule motors to transport up to a meter down the axons of neurons. But how do these particles, which are too large to exit via the nuclear pore complex, move a few microns to get out of the nucleus? Join herpes...
