Mukherjee B, Burma S, Hasnain SE (1995) An unusual 30-kDa protein binding to the polyhedrin gene promoter of Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus.
Surprisingly, the polyhedrin subunits are more similar to picornavirus coat proteins than to the polyhedrin of cytoplasmic polyhedrosis virus (CPV).
There was no effect on the complex formation when binding was carried out in the presence of unlabeled polyhedrin gene promoter (
The use of flexible adaptors to generate a powerful system for packaging irregular particles is characteristic of the AcMNPV polyhedrin and may provide a vehicle to sequester a wide range of objects such as biological nano-particles. et al. & contentID = 10.1038/emboj. 2009.352&publicationDate = 12/03/2009&Vol = & Issue = current ">
