Bhowmick S, Chakravarty C, Sellathamby S, Lal S. The influenza A virus matrix protein 2 undergoes retrograde transport from the endoplasmic reticulum into the cytoplasm and bypasses cytoplasmic proteasomal degradation. Arch Virol. 2017;162:919-929 pubmed publisher
..The migration of M2 through this pathway inside the infected cell suggests possible new roles that the M2 protein may have in the host cytoplasm, apart from its previously described functions. ..

. s8ORF2 protein of infectious salmon anaemia virus is a RNA-silencing suppressor and interacts with Salmon salar Mov10 (SsMov10) of the host RNAi machinery. Virus Genes. 2018;54:199-214 pubmed publisher
..This study thus sheds light on a novel route undertaken by viral proteins in promoting viral growth, using the host RNAi machinery. ..
