Hepatitis Delta Virus: A Peculiar Virus

Figure 3

Functional domains of S-HDAg and L-HDAg. The delta antigens share most of their sequence differing only in the 19-amino-acid extension at the C-terminal of L-HDAg. They have, within the common sequence, as represented, a coiled-coil domain (CCD), a nuclear localization signal (NLS), and an RNA binding domain (RBD). Also indicated on L-HDAg are the nuclear export signal (NES) and the unique cysteine, residue 211, which is the target for farnesylation. The numbers indicate the position of the amino acid residues.
