Interestingly, single-amino-acid changes within MA have been reported to redirect assembly to the intracellular Golgi apparatus (63). In addition, studies of MA mutations in M-PMV indicate they can switch from a lentiviral type D (cytosolic) to a lentiviral type C (plasma membrane) assembly (64). MA also appears to facilitate incorporation of Env glycoproteins into viral particles possibly using holes in the lattice of MA oligomers (65) and by interacting with the cytoplasmic region of full-length Env (65).
