EEV maturation protein
MPXVgp044; C18L; EEV maturation protein; similar to vaccinia virus strain Copenhagen F12L; facilitates the transport of intracellular viral particles to the cell membrane; in its absence particles are assembled but remain intracellular and do not traffic to cell membrane; The poxviridae are enveloped unsegmented dsDNA viruses; unlike many dsDNA viruses that replicate in the host nucleus poxviruses encode their own replication machinery and therefore replicate in the cytoplasm; viral genes are expressed in a bi-phasic manner with early genes encoding non-structural proteins involved in genome replication and late genes encoding the viral structural proteins
