The curious case of herpesvirus nuclear egress
Herpesvirus capsids exit the nucleus by a unique vesicular transport through the nuclear double membrane. A multimodality imaging approach including super-resolution light microscopy and electron cryo microscopy, combined with structure determination by X-ray crystallography, revealed the structural basis for highly-defined vesicle formation at the inner nuclear membrane as mediated by the herpesvirus nuclear egress complex.
