Molluscum contagiosum virus encodes more than 150 proteins including some involved in host interactions that might contribute to prolonged viral replication in the skin. These include homologs of a selenocysteine-containing glutathione peroxidase, a death effector domain protein, a chemokine, a major histocompatibility complex class I molecule and an interleukin-18-binding protein.
