Abstract: The capsid protein (CA) (p24) of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 expressed in Escherichia coli and purified to >90%o homogeneity was used to examine assembly in vitro and to probe the nature of interactions involved in the formation of capsid structures. The protein was detected in dimeric and oligomeric forms as indicated by molecular size measurements by gel filtration column chromatography, sedimentation through sucrose, and nondenaturing gel electrophoresis. Chemical cross-linking of CA molecules…
