Chemokine binding protein
MPXVgp191; J3R; chemokine binding protein; similar to vaccinia virus Copenhagen B29R/C23L; interacts with CC and CXC chemokines to modulate host immune response; 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 genes encoding non-structural proteins involved in genome replication and late genes encoding the viral structural proteins
