Abstract

The major capsid protein VP1 encoded by genome segment S1 of Bombyx mori cypovirus 1 was expressed in a baculovirus system. In the absence of any other capsid proteins, VP1 was found to assemble into single-shelled virus-like particles. The VP1 particles were more sensitive to acidic conditions than were intact particles.
