Chemical cleavage of polyomavirus major structural protein VP1: identification of cleavage products and evidence that the receptor moiety resides in the carboxy-terminal region.


As a first step toward identifying the various functional regions of the polyomavirus major capsid protein VP1, we used recently developed methods for the chemical cleavage of proteins and the available polyomavirus sequence data to devise a scheme to produce large, identifiable peptides and generate a cleavage map of VP1. Formic acid (75%) was found to… (More)
