Genome Segments: Shows
PAGE separation of the 11 segments of the rotavirus SA11 genome.
Encoded proteins: Shows
the PAGE separation of the intracellular proteins synthesized by SA11 and the
genome segment in which they are encoded. Six structural (VP) and six
nonstructural (NSP) proteins are synthesized in the infected cell. Note that
NSP6 runs far below NSP5 and is not shown on the gel presented here.
Shows the locations of the various structural proteins within the rotavirus
virion. Note the arrangement of the proteins into 3 concentric capsid layers,
and the location of the VP1/VP3 complexes at the 5-fold verticies of the
A 3D reconstruction of the SA11 virion (23Å resolution) with the genome
computationally removed. The color scheme is the same as the schematic, to
indicate locations of the various proteins. (Courtesy of J. Lawton and B.V.V.
