Abstract

Assembly of the broad-host-range bacteriophage PRD1 involves translocation of the virus-specific membrane to the inside of the icosahedral protein shell formed of trimeric coat proteins. The formation of PRD1 particles is, in addition to the virus-encoded assembly factors P10 and P17, dependent on GroEL/GroES chaperonins. The chaperonins assist in the folding of the capsid proteins P3 and P5 and in the assembly of viral membrane proteins.
