A DNA-binding domain (DBD) was identified on simian virus 40 (SV40) major capsid protein Vp1, and the domain's function in the SV40 life cycle was examined. The DBD was mapped by assaying various recombinant Vp1 proteins for DNA binding in vitro. The carboxy-terminal 58-residue truncated Vp1DeltaC58 pentamer bound DNA with a K(d) of 1.8 x 10(-9) M in terms of the protein pentamer, while full-length Vp1 and carboxy-terminal-17-truncated Vp1DeltaC17 had comparable apparent K(d)s of 5.3 x 10(-9… CONTINUE READING
