Membrane translocation of the ssRNA genome of nodaviruses has been proposed to be mediated by direct lipid-protein interactions between a postassembly autocatalytic cleavage product from the capsomere and the target membrane. We have recently shown that the 21-residue Met-->Nle variant of the N-terminal helical domain (denoted gamma(1)) of the cleavage peptide in flock house nodavirus increases membrane permeability to hydrophilic solutes and can alter both membrane structure and function… CONTINUE READING
