Abstract

The phosphoprotein (P) of the nucleorhabdovirus sonchus yellow net virus has been shown to accumulate in ring-shaped structures in virus-infected nuclei. Further examination by live-cell imaging, in combination with structural examination by transmission electron microscopy and immunolocalization demonstrated that P-rings do not form in association with nucleoli. Furthermore, viral cores were shown to condense on the nucleoplasm-contacting surface of the rings. The data presented here offer evidence for the site of nucleocapsid assembly in SYNV-infected nuclei.
