Abstract
NAP1L1 has been shown to function in the life cycle of several DNA virus and retrovirus. However, whether NAP1L1 regulates hepatitis C virus (HCV), a positive-stranded RNA virus, remain to be elucidated. In this study, we identified NAP1L1 as a novel binding partner for HCV NS3. Our results suggest that NAP1L1 contributes to HCV entry, but not viral replication. These findings provide mechanistic insight into the role of NAP1L1 in HCV life cycle and extend the role of NAP1L1 to RNA virus.
Key Words: hepatitis C virus (HCV);  NAP1L1;  NS3;  entr
