Abstract

In this issue of Structure, Gil-Carton et al. (2015) use hybrid structural methods to investigate the architecture of the membrane-containing halovirus HHIV-2, a member of the PRD1-adenovirus lineage. This work sheds light on how lipid-proteins interactions guide the assembly of single β-barrel coat proteins to form an icosahedral capsid.
