Abstract

The rabies virus phosphoprotein (P) and nucleoprotein (N) are involved in transcription and replication of the viral genome. Interaction between N and P was studied in transfected cells expressing both proteins. Co-immunoprecipitation assays revealed that the N-P complex is present in cells expressing both proteins as well as in infected cells. Furthermore, immunostaining showed that coexpression of N and P was sufficient to induce the formation of cytoplasmic inclusions similar to those found in infected cells. In addition, deletion mutant analysis of P was performed to identify the regions of P interacting with N. The results indicate that at least two independent N-binding sites exist on P protein: one is located in the carboxy-terminal part of the protein and another between amino acids 69 and 177. The formation of cytoplasmic inclusions seems to require the presence of both N-binding sites on P protein.
