Presentation Title

Investigating the Role of RabGTPases in the Replication of the Mammareanavirus Junín

Abstract

Rab proteins are a family of GTPases within the host cell that have been found to interact with and are hypothesized to be essential in the replication of the mammarenavirus Junín. These proteins are essential in trafficking the host cell vesicles and have been found to play a key role in the assembly of other single stranded RNA viruses, such as influenza. This project focuses on determining if Rab proteins play an important role in the replication of the New World mammarenavirus Junín (JUNV).
