Sindbis virus

(Science: virology) Enveloped virus of the alphavirus group of togaviridae. It is thought to be an infection of birds spread by fleas and there is little evidence that it causes any serious infection in humans. The synthesis and export of the spike proteins, via the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex, have been used as a model for the synthesis and export of plasma membrane proteins.
