Hepatitis C virus (HCV) nucleocapsid assembly requires dimerization of the core protein, an essential step in the formation of the virus particle. We developed a novel quantitative assay for monitoring this protein-protein interaction, with the goal of identifying inhibitors of core dimerization that might block HCV production in infected Huh-7.5 hepatoma cells. Two core-derived, 18-residue peptides were found that inhibited the dimerization of a fragment of core comprising residues 1-106… Expand
