- Minor capsid proteins of simian virus 40 are dispensable for nucleocapsid assembly and cell entry but are required for nuclear entry of the viral genomeAkira Nakanishi
Molecular Biology Institute and Department of Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology, 456 Boyer Hall, University of California, Los Angeles, 611 East Charles E Young Dr, Box 951570, Los Angeles, CA 90095 1570, USA
J Virol 81:3778-85. 2007..Further, the nucleocapsids' ability to enter cells implies that Vp1 contains the major determinants for cell attachment and entry. We propose that the major role of Vp2/3 in infectivity is to mediate the nuclear entry of viral DNA...
