A calcium-fortified viral matrix protein

Gaya K. Amarasinghe, Rebecca Ellis Dutch

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


In this issue of Structure, Leyrat and colleagues provide the first structural analysis of the human metapneumovirus (HMPV) matrix protein, a key regulator of viral assembly. Though structurally similar to other matrix proteins, two calcium binding sites suggest intriguing differences in regulation.
