3 Late Domain Late domain, which was first discovered in the Gag polyproteins of retroviruses and M (matrix) proteins of rhabdoviruses, is involved in the budding process of the enveloped viruses. It is composed of four amino acid residues (ie, PTAP, PPPY, and PPEY) encoded in either the rhabdovirus matrix protein or the p6 subdomain of HIV Gag polyprotein (panel A). Intriguingly, a substitution mutation of the late domain motif results in virions attached to the plasma membrane without being released, as if the viral release is blocked at a late stage of budding, a phenotype that is reflected in the nomenclature.

Four modes of cell-to-cell spread. (A) Via plasma membrane fusion. (B) Across tight junction. (C) Across a neural synapse. (D) Across a virological synapse. (Continued ) 15. Tight junction Tight junctions are the closely associated areas of two cells whose membranes join together forming a virtually impermeable barrier to fluid. They help to maintain the polarity of cells by preventing the lateral diffusion of integral membrane proteins between the apical and lateral/basal surfaces, allowing the maintenance of specialized functions of each surface.

4). Then, how are the viruses released from the infected cells? Most enveloped viruses are released extracellularly via exocytosis10; often, this process is also called budding, as an analogy of buds in plants. Via budding, the envelopment 9. Packaging signal A sequence element in the viral genome that is essential for the genome packaging. 10. Exocytosis The process in which a cell directs the contents of secretory vesicles out of the cell membrane into the extracellular space. 8 Relationship between capsid assembly and genome packaging.
