Mechanism of polymorphism and curvature of HIV capsid assemblies probed by 3D simulations with a novel coarse grain model.


BACKGROUND During the maturation process, HIV capsid proteins self-assemble into polymorphic capsids. The strong polymorphism precludes high resolution structural characterization under in vivo conditions. In spite of the determination of structural models for various in vitro assemblies of HIV capsid proteins, the assembly mechanism is still not well… (More)
