The selective packaging of adenovirus DNA into a capsid raises a number of interesting questions. How is the viral DNA specifically selected from the pool of viral and cellular DNA for encapsidation? What protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions are involved in this process? Are cellular proteins involved in adenovirus packaging? Is the packaging process coordinated with viral DNA replication? Does the virus share a packaging mechanism with one or more of the wellcharacterized prokaryotic… CONTINUE READING
