Abstract

Viruses succeed as intracellular parasites because of their ability to invade cells and appropriate the cellular machinery required during their life cycle. The actin cytoskeleton of the host cell does not escape viral infection unscathed, but is often co-opted by the virus at many different stages of its life cycle to facilitate the infection process.
