The C-terminal domain of the P protein of rabies virus is a multifunctional domain that interacts with both viral and host cell proteins. Here we report the 1H, 13C and 15N chemical shift assignments of this domain from P protein of the Nishigahara strain of rabies virus, a pathogenic laboratory strain well established for studies of virulence functions of rabies virus proteins, including P protein. The data and secondary structure analysis are in good agreement with the reported predominantly helical structure of the same domain from the CVS strain of rabies solved by crystallography. These assignments will enable future solution studies of the interactions of the P protein with viral and host proteins, and the effects of post-translational modifications.
