Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Biological function
Rift Valley Fever Virus glycoproteins Gn and Gc are the major structural antigens found on the virion particle. Together the two proteins are present as heterodimers and form the icosahedral shell of the virion. In vitro Gn and Gc form virus-like particles and can induce immunity in animals. Baculovirus expression systems have demonstrated that Gn is required for the expression of homogeneous virion particle surfaces.
