Viruses, Vol. 11, Pages 46: Friend or Foe: The Role of the Cytoskeleton in Influenza A Virus Assembly (Viruses)

Influenza A Virus (IAV) is a respiratory virus that causes seasonal outbreaks annually and pandemics occasionally. The main targets of the virus are epithelial cells in the respiratory tract. Like many other viruses, IAV employs the host cell’s machinery to enter cells, synthesize new genomes and viral proteins, and assemble new virus particles. The cytoskeletal system is a major cellular machinery, which IAV exploits for its item to and exit from the cell. However, in some cases, the cytoskeleton has a negative impact on efficient IAV growth. In this review, we highlight the role of cytoskeletal elements in cellular processes that are utilized by IAV in the host cell. We further provide an in-depth description of the current literature on the roles the cytoskeleton plays in regulating specific steps during the assembly of progeny IAV particles.
