Flu_M1_CInfluenza Matrix protein (M1) C-terminal domain
|SMART accession number:||SM00759|
|Description:||This region is thought to be a second domain of the M1 matrix protein.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR013188):|
Matrix protein (M1) of Influenza virus is a bifunctional membrane/RNA-binding protein that mediates the encapsidation of RNA-nucleoprotein cores into the membrane envelope. It is therefore required that M1 binds both membrane and RNA simultaneously. M1 is comprised of two domains connected by a linker sequence. The C-terminal domain contains alpha-helical structure and appears to be involved in growth and virulence of the virus [(PUBMED:15892972), (PUBMED:12590584)].
|GO function:||structural molecule activity (GO:0005198), RNA binding (GO:0003723)|
