What is Influenza B (NP)?

The Nucleoprotein (NP) is a structural protein and encapsidates the negative strand RNA of influenza B into ribonucleoproteins (RNP). NP plays a role in replication, transcription, RNA packaging, and nuclear trafficking. The NP does not only interact with the RNA, but also the viral polymerase, the M protein, and several host factors.
