Abstract: Little is known about the assembly of the 28-nm nucleocapsid or core particle of hepatitis B virus. Here we show that this assembly process can be reconstituted in Xenopus oocytes injected with a synthetic mRNA encoding the hepatitis B virus capsid protein (p21.5). Injected oocytes produce both a nonparticulate p21.5 species (free p21.5) and capsid particles. We describe rapid and simple methods for fractionating these species on a small scale either with step gradients of 10 to 60%o (wt/vol) sucrose or by cen…
