Abstract

Different paramyxoviruses were analyzed for the covalent attachment of fatty acids into their structural proteins. The fusion protein (F) of Newcastle diseases virus and the hemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) of Simian virus 5 are fatty acylated, whereas the glycoproteins of Sendai virus are fatty acid free. The fatty acid linkage is labile to treatment with hydroxylamine. SDS-PAGE in the presence of mercaptoethanol releases some of the covalently bound acyl chains.
