Our previous study had reported on the interaction of rotavirus NSP1 with cellular phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) during activation of the PI3K pathway (P. Bagchi et al., J. Virol. 84:6834-6845, 2010). In this study, we have analyzed the molecular mechanism behind this interaction. Results showed that this interaction is direct and that both α and β isomers of the PI3K regulatory subunit p85 and full-length NSP1 are important for this interaction, which results in efficient activation of the PI3K/Akt pathway during rotavirus infection.
