This special issue will overview the mechanisms by which viral envelope glycoproteins are acquired by different viruses in order to generate infectious viral particles. It will highlight both the common and divergent strategies evolved by viruses that facilitate the translocation of the viral transmembrane glycoproteins to the viral assembly sites. All enveloped viruses are considered. We shall explore how the varied life cycles of different enveloped viruses results in different mechanisms for glycoprotein acquisition. Cellular factors that modulate the viral glycoprotein expression, trafficking, and incorporation are also included.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Viruses is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
