For more than 30 years X-ray crystallography has been by far the most powerful approach for determining the structures of viruses and viral proteins at atomic resolution. The information provided by these structures, which covers many important aspects of the viral life cycle such as cell-receptor recognition, viral entry, nucleic acid transfer and genome replication, has extensively enriched our vision of the virus world. Many of the structures available correspond to potential targets for antiviral drugs against important human pathogens. This article provides an overview of the current knowledge of different structural aspects of the above-mentioned processes. Viruses have evolved different strategies for their multiplication and propagation. The PDB now treasures the three-dimensional structures of over virus capsids, from more than 35 viral families and about protein structures coded by viral genomes. These include not only structural proteins forming icosahedral capsids and other components of virus particles, such as proteins of cylindrical viruses or different components of tailed phages, but also many viral enzymes such as viral proteinases, and RNA and DNA polymerases. Animal viruses may infect host cells by anchoring to an appropriate receptor molecule s , which will trigger penetration of the entire virion or some of its components, always including the viral genome, into the cell. Unless the nucleic acid enters alone, viral genome replication and expression will require uncoating of the capsid and release of the internalized viral nucleic acid.
Systems used to automatically annotate proteins with high accuracy:. Select item s and click on "Add to basket" to create your own collection here entries max. The Viral protein annotation project focuses on the manual annotation of viral proteins, viral and host taxonomy and host interaction specificities. The taxonomy describes precisely the strain or isolate from which the protein sequence belongs to. The concept of this website is to associate specific knowledge for each virus family with viral protein and genomic sequences.
