• subunit
  • In re-organizing into the mature capsid lattice, each subunit of the precursor lattice must change its conformation, or its relationship with its neighbours, or both. (hindawi.com)
  • envelope
  • Enteroviruses belong to a large family of picornaviridae, which are about 30- to 35-nm icosahedral bionanoparticles consisting of a protein capsid without a lipid envelope ( 1 ). (pnas.org)
  • The envelope is formed when the capsid buds from the host cell, taking some of the host-cell membrane with it. (wikipedia.org)
  • residues
  • Synthetic peptide corresponding to C terminal residues of Drosophila C virus DCV capsid polyprotein. (abcam.com)
  • The C-terminus also contains a basic nuclear localization sequence, while the N-terminus - which is oriented toward the center of the assembled capsid - contains basic residues that facilitate non-sequence-specific interactions with DNA. (wikipedia.org)
  • depressions
  • The organisation of the three major capsid proteins leads to surface depressions, or pits, thought to be involved in receptor binding, while the variable outer rim is involved in antibody recognition. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • The capsid is also characterized by plateaus (around the 3-fold axes) and depressions (around the 2-fold axes). (wikipedia.org)
  • Capsid with 32 cup-shaped depressions. (wikipedia.org)
  • interaction
  • Further investigation during 2006 showed that assembly of capsid with portal depends on interaction of UL-6 with "scaffolding" protein UL-26.5, amino acids 143 through 151. (wikipedia.org)
  • stochastic
  • We use two model types for this study: ordinary differential equation models, which allow us to precisely and deterministically compare the accuracy of capsid models under different degrees of simplification, and stochastic discrete event simulations, which allow us to sample use of reaction intermediates across a wide parameter space allowing for an extremely large number of possible reaction pathways. (hindawi.com)
  • complexity
  • Here, we examine that question with respect to viral capsid assembly by studying the 'pathway complexity' of model capsid assembly systems, which we informally define as the number of reaction pathways and intermediates one must consider to accurately describe a given system. (hindawi.com)
  • assembly
  • The models provide complementary information in support of a common conclusion that the ability of simple pathway models to adequately explain capsid assembly kinetics varies considerably across the space of biologically meaningful assembly parameters. (hindawi.com)
  • Assembly of portal units is an initial step in constructing capsids of viral progeny. (wikipedia.org)
  • UL-6 associates with a UL-15/UL-28 protein complex during capsid assembly. (wikipedia.org)
  • The UL-15/UL-28 is believed to bind with viral DNA and serve the same purpose as terminase by packing viral DNA into the capsid during capsid assembly. (wikipedia.org)
  • amino
  • The weak forces at work include attraction or repulsion between electrostatic charges, water solubility, and constituent amino acid structures in various parts of the capsid. (asknature.org)
