The carboxy terminus-encoding portion of the gag gene of Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (M-PMV), the prototype immunosuppressive primate type D retrovirus, encodes a 36-amino-acid, proline-rich protein domain that, in the mature virion, becomes the p4 capsid protein. The p4 domain has no known role in M-PMV replication. We found that two mutants with premature termination codons that remove half or all of the p4 domain produced lower levels of stable Gag protein and of self-assembled capsids… CONTINUE READING
