The identification of host factors involved in virus replication is important to understand virus life cycles better. Accordingly, we sought host factors that interact with the influenza viral nonstructural protein 2 by using coimmunoprecipitation followed by mass spectrometry. Among proteins associating with nonstructural protein 2, we focused on the β subunit of the F1Fo-ATPase, which received a high probability score in our mass spectrometry analysis. The siRNA-mediated down-regulation of the β subunit of the F1Fo-ATPase reduced influenza virion formation and virus growth in cell culture. We further found that efficient influenza virion formation requires the ATPase activity of F1Fo-ATPase and that plasma membrane-associated, but not mitochondrial, F1Fo-ATPase is important for influenza virion formation and budding. Hence, our data identify plasma membrane-associated F1Fo-ATPase as a critical host factor for efficient influenza virus replication.
