Identification of domains in canine parvovirus VP2 essential for the assembly of virus-like particles.

Abstract

Canine parvovirus capsids are composed of 60 copies of VP2 and 6 to 10 copies of VPl. To locate essential sites of interaction between VP2 monomers, we have analyzed the effects of a number of VP2 deletion mutants representing the amino terminus and the four major loops of the surface, using as an assay the formation of virus-like particles (VLPs) expressed… (More)
