High-speed mass transit for poxviruses on microtubules

Nature Cell Biology volume 3, pages E245E246 (2001) | Download Citation

Subjects

Commuters can ride a high-speed mass-transit system from the city centre to the suburbs and then engage a private vehicle for the final leg home. Similarly, vaccinia virions travel to the cell periphery on microtubule tracks, disembark near the plasma membrane, and acquire individual actin tails for propulsion on microvilli towards adjacent cells.
