This special issue will overview mechanisms of nuclear import used by different viruses, including Adenoviruses, herpesviruses, Retroviruses, Influenza viruses, Picorna viruses etc. It will highlight both common and divergent pathways evolved by viruses to access the nucleus and how virology research has contributed to understand important basic aspects of nuclear import. We shall draw attention to the import and export of viral proteins critical for replication and to viral proteins that perturb basic nuclear import mechanisms to the advantage of the virus. We shall also explore the relationship between intacellular trafficking of viral particles, their nuclear translocation and activation of the innate immune system.
