Comparative Characterization of the Sindbis Virus Proteome from Mammalian and Invertebrate Hosts Identifies nsP2 as a Component of the Virion and Sorting Nexin 5 as a Significant Host Factor for Alphavirus Replication. J Virol. 2018;92: pubmed publisher
    ..Identification of these factors is invaluable for the prophylaxis of this group of viruses. ..
  2. Hernandez R, Paredes A, Brown D. Sindbis virus conformational changes induced by a neutralizing anti-E1 monoclonal antibody. J Virol. 2008;82:5750-60 pubmed publisher
    ..A model is proposed which postulates that the induction of conformational changes in the infectious state of a metastable enveloped virus may be a general mechanism of antibody inactivation of virus infectivity. ..
