Virology Journal | Abstract | Immune response to a potyvirus with exposed amino groups available for chemical conjugation

Via Scoop.itVirology News

The amino terminus of the tobacco etch virus (TEV) capsid protein is located on the external surface of infectious TEV particles, as proposed by previous studies and an in silico model.  The epsilon amino groups on the exposed lysine residues are available for chemical conjugation to any given protein, and can thus act as antigen carriers. The availability of amino groups on the surfaces of TEV particles was determined and the immune response to TEV evaluated.

 

Plant viruses are creeping into use as nanoparticles…bionanophytovirus particles??
