    ..In addition, the release of progeny virus was facilitated by a Rab11-positive recycling endosome and microtubule network. Our data provide important insights into the mechanism of transmission and pathogenesis of MuV. ..

    ..We found that the Hsp72 mobilized to the IBs promoted degradation of the MuV P protein through the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. Our data provide new insight into the role played by IBs in mononegavirus infection. ..

    ..Our data provide important insights into the molecular mechanisms of paramyxovirus polymerase maturation as well as a basis for the development of novel antiviral drugs. ..
