Members of the Dynamin family include GTPase, microtubule-associated proteins that are involved in cellular trafficking, including microtubule bundling and endocytosis. Mx1, also known as MxA, an interferon (IFN)-induced protein, acquires a high degree of resistance to influenza A virus and the rhabdo-virus vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV), which suggests that Mx1 plays an active role against influenza virus and the rhabdovirus VSV. Mx1 is a cytoplasmic protein that is 63% identical to the Mx2 protein, which lacks antiviral activity. Mx2 is also known as MxB and is localized at the cytoplasmic face of nuclear pores. Mx2 expression is not interferon-dependent and this protein is thought to regulate the efficiency and/or kinetics of nuclear import, a function which may have been usurped by its antiviral relatives.
