CHIKV nsP3 sequesters mosquito Rasputin into cytoplasmic granules. a Schematic representation of Ae.albopictus-Rin-mCherry. NTF2; nuclear transport factor 2-like domain, RRM: RNA recognition motif, RGG; arginine-glycine rich box. b Ae.albopictus-Rin-mCherry or EGFP-nsP3 were transiently expressed in SF21 insect cells and display diffuse and granular intracellular distributions, respectively. c Ae.albopictus-Rin-mCherry and EGFP-nsP3 (top) or EGFP-nsP3.8 (bottom) were co-transfected into insect cells. Magnified images are presented
