Abstract: The poliovirus capsid precursor polyprotein, P1, is cotranslationally modified by the addition of myristic acid. We have examined the importance of myristylation of the P1 capsid precursor during the poliovirus assembly process by using a recently described recombinant vaccinia virus expression system which allows the independent production of the poliovirus P1 protein and the poliovirus 3CD proteinase (D.
