Abstract Sendai virus (SeV) HN protein is dispensable for virus particle production. HN incorporation into virions strictly depends on a cytoplasmic domain SYWST motif. HNAFYKD, with SYWST replaced with the analogous sequence of measles virus (MeV) H (AFYKD), is not incorporated in virus particles produced by LLCMK2 cells, although it is normally expressed at the plasma membrane. Unlike HNSYWST, HNAFYKD is not internalized to late endosomes, raising the possibility that HN internalization is required for uptake into virus particles. Various mosaic MeV-H containing increasing amounts of the SeV-HN all failed to be taken up in SeV virions. However, when co-expressed with HNAFYKD these MeV-H chimera induced HNAFYKD uptake into virions showing that internalization is not a prerequisite for HN uptake into particles. We propose that HN incorporation in virus particles requires first neutralization by HN of a putative inhibitor of infectious particle formation.
