The Biogenesis of Vaccinia Virus
Our current understanding of the processes involved in the biosynthetic route of membrane proteins, from their site of synthesis, the rough ER to the plasma membrane owes a great deal to the use of model viral membrane proteins as tools. The three most popular proteins in this respect have been the G protein of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), the haemagglutinin (HA) of influenza virus and the spike proteins of Semliki Forest virus (SFV) (see Simons and Warren, 1984).
