Once in the cytoplasm the capsid and tegument proteins are free to interact with host proteins. The capsid travels to the nucleus, where the genome is delivered and circularized. Tegument proteins regulate host cell responses and initiate the expression of viral I immediate early genes. This is followed by the expression of delayed early genes.
