Microtubular outwards viral transport


In a cell, structures exceeding 20 nm require energy-dependent motility to travel through the cytosol. Therefore viruses take advantage of molecular motors to move newly assembled viral progeny to the plasma membrane to facilitate their spread into surrounding cells .

Microtubule-dependent outward transport involves motor proteins like kinesin .
