Virus-host protein interactions in RNA viruses

Microbes Infect. 2010 Dec;12(14-15):1134-43. doi: 10.1016/j.micinf.2010.09.001. Epub 2010 Sep 9.


RNA viruses exhibit small-sized genomes that only encode a limited number of viral proteins, but still establish complex networks of interactions with host cell components. Here we summarize recent reports that aim at understanding general features of RNA virus infection networks at the protein level.
