A novel coronavirus has been identified as the causative agent of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). Coronaviruses are a major cause of upper respiratory diseases in humans. The genomes of these viruses are positive stranded RNA approximately 27 to 31kb in length.
The evelope protein is a component of the viral envelope that plays a central role in virus morphogenesis and assembly. It may be sufficient to form virus like particles.
