RelevanceThe nucleoprotein (NP) of Influenza virus encapsulates the negative strand of the viral RNA and is essential for replicative transcription. It may also be involved in other essential functions throughout the virus life cycle. As well as binding ssRNA, NP is able to self associate to form large oligomeric complexes. NP is able to interact with a variety of other macromolecules of both viral and cellular origins. It binds the PB1 and PB2 subunits of the polymerase and the matrix protein M1. "NP has also been shown to interact with at least four cellular polypeptide families: nuclear import receptors of the importin class, filamentous (F) actin, the nuclear export receptor CRM1 and a DEAD box helicase BAT1/UAP56" (Portela et al 2002).

Immunofluorescence assay of MDCK cells derived from canine kidney cells, and A549 cells derived from human lung carcinoma cells, that were infected with H1N1 influenza virus (A/PuertoRico/8/34). Samples were taken at 3, 9, and 24 hours post-infection. Influenza A Virus Nucleoprotein antibody (ab128193) efficiently detected virus-infected MDCK and A549 cells as early as 3 h after infection. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and permeabilized with 0.1% 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS. The bound antibody was visualized by a further reaction with an green flurescent secondary antibody.
