Many DNA viruses use powerful molecular motors to cleave concatemeric viral DNA into genome-length units and package them into… Expand An ATP-powered DNA translocation machine encapsidates the viral genome in the large dsDNA bacteriophages. The essential… Expand The packaging of double-stranded genomic DNA into some viral and all bacteriophage capsids is driven by powerful molecular motors… Expand Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) terminase is composed of subunits pUL56 (130 kDa) and pUL89 ( approximately 75 kDa), encoded by the… Expand Herpesviral DNA packaging is a complex process involving binding and cleavage of DNA containing the specific DNA‐packaging motifs… Expand Phage DNA packaging is believed to be driven by a rotary device coupled to an ATPase 'motor'. Recent evidence suggests that the… Expand Abstract. This review focuses on the biochemical, biophysical, and catalytic properties of terminase, an enzyme involved in… Expand The terminase enzyme from bacteriophage λ is composed of two viral proteins (gpA, 73.2 kDa; gpNu1, 20.4 kDa) and is responsible… Expand Replication of the single-stranded DNA genome of geminiviruses occurs via a double-stranded intermediate that is subsequently… Expand Terminases of double-stranded DNA bacteriophages are required for packaging and generation of terminii in replicated concatemeric… Expand
