The structures of bovine papillomavirus type 1 (BPV-1) and human papillomavirus type 1 (HPV-1) were determined at 2.5 nm resolution by cryoelectron microscopy and three dimensional image reconstruction techniques. As expected, the reconstructions showed that both viruses consist of a T = 7 icosahedral capsid (approximately 60 nm in diameter) which surrounds a nucleohistone core. The capsid morphologies of the two viruses are nearly indistinguishable. Each capsid consists of a shell layer… CONTINUE READING
