Intracellular localization of human respiratory syncytial virus L protein

Intracellular localization of human respiratory syncytial virus L protein Replication and transcription of the human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) genome is carried out by the ribonucleocapsid complex (RNA together with N, P, M2-1 and L proteins), with the L protein being responsible for all enzymatic activities. In the present study, we obtained anti-L polyclonal sera in mice. These antibodies were functional in immunofluorescence and Western blotting assays in hRSV-infected HEp-2 cells. In the immunofluorescence assays, we detected inclusion bodies in the anti-L staining, similar to the ones seen by anti-N or anti-P staining. The results presented here provide the first evidence of the intracellular localization of the hRSV L protein. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Replication and transcription of the human respiratory syncytial virus (hRSV) genome is carried out by the ribonucleocapsid complex (RNA together with N, P, M2-1 and L proteins), with the L protein being responsible for all enzymatic activities. In the present study, we obtained anti-L polyclonal sera in mice. These antibodies were functional in immunofluorescence and Western blotting assays in hRSV-infected HEp-2 cells. In the immunofluorescence assays, we detected inclusion bodies in the anti-L staining, similar to the ones seen by anti-N or anti-P staining. The results presented here provide the first evidence of the intracellular localization of the hRSV L protein.
