    J Virol 87:1083-97. 2013
    ..Precleavage of the C terminus or abrogation of its phosphorylation diminished the IV→MV maturation; a block to cleavage spared virion maturation but compromised the yield of infectious virus...

    J Virol 82:10247-61. 2008
    ..I2 is thus yet another component of the poxvirus virion that is essential for the complex process of entry into target cells...

    Matthew D Greseth
    Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
    J Virol 86:6197-209. 2012
    ..Additionally, we demonstrate that small interfering RNA (siRNA)-mediated depletion of I3 causes a significant decrease in the accumulation of progeny genomes and that this reduction diminishes the yield of infectious virus...

    Bethany Unger
    Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Medical College of Wisconsin, 8701 Watertown Plank Rd, BSB 273, Milwaukee, WI 53226, USA
    J Virol 78:8885-901. 2004
    ..The A13L protein, therefore, is part of a newly recognized group of membrane proteins that are dispensable for the early biogenesis of the virion membrane but are essential for virion maturation...
