Adenovirus L1 52- and 55-kilodalton proteins are present within assembling virions and colocalize with nuclear structures distinct from replication centers.

Analysis of a temperature-sensitive mutant, Ad5ts369, had indicated that the adenovirus L1 52- and 55-kDa proteins (52/55-kDa proteins) are required for the assembly of infectious virions. By using monoclonal antibodies directed against bacterially produced L1 52-kDa protein, the L1 52/55-kDa proteins were found to be differentially phosphorylated forms of… CONTINUE READING
