Effects of Tunicamycin on Rotavirus Morphogenesis and Infectivity

By Betty L. Petrie, Mary K. Estes and David Y. Graham

Abstract

The functions of the two rotavirus glycoproteins were investigated by using tunicamycin and a variant of SA11 rotavirus having nonglycosylated VP7. Results showed that glycosylation of VP7 is not required for normal viral morphogenesis and infectivity and suggested that the nonstructural glycoprotein is involved in assembly of the outer capsid
