Membrane-containing viruses with icosahedrally symmetric capsids.

Abstract:

Viruses with an icosahedrally symmetric protein capsid and a membrane infect hosts from all three domains of life. Similar architectural principles are shared by different viral families, as exemplified by double-stranded DNA viruses such as PRD1 and STIV. During virus assembly, the membrane lipids are selectively acquired from the host cell. The X-ray structure of bacteriophage PRD1 revealed that the lipids are asymmetrically distributed between the two leaflets and facet length is controlle...
