In 2014, the world witnessed the largest Ebolavirus outbreak in recorded history. The subsequent

of ebolavirus replication and pathogenicity. The main functions of each ebolavirus

recent expansion of ebolavirus research has led to the discovery of new protein functions.

whilst enhancing our understanding of the broad functions of each ebolavirus viral

function during virus replication. Such new functions range from bystander T-lymphocyte

This review highlights the newly discovered roles of ebolavirus proteins in order to provide a

more encompassing view of ebolavirus replication and pathogenicity.
