The emergence of SARS-CoV-2 caused an urgent need to investigate the molecular mechanisms of its reproduction. However, the detailed step-by-step mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 virion assembly has not been described yet. In the presented review the data on the role of structural proteins in the efficient assembly of betacoronavirus particles are analyzed.
