The NS1 protein of the parvovirus MVM Aids in the localization of the viral genome to cellular sites of DNA damage

2020-10-16 17:38:43 UTC

The NS1 protein of the parvovirus MVM Aids in the localization of the viral genome to cellular sites of DNA damageAuthor summary Parvoviruses are among the simplest of viruses, depending almost exclusively on host cell factors to successfully replicate. We have previously shown that the parvovirus Minute Virus of Mice (MVM) establishes replication centers at sites that a Read more at Plos.org
