UniProtKB description:  Capsid protein self-assembles to form an icosahedral capsid with a T=3 symmetry, about 26 nm in diameter, and consisting of 89 capsid proteins dimers (178 capsid proteins) (PubMed:8254664, PubMed:18662904). Involved in viral genome encapsidation through the interaction between a capsid protein dimer and the multiple packaging signals present in the RNA genome (PubMed:9469847, PubMed:26608810, PubMed:7523953). The capsid contains also 1 copy of the A2 maturation protein (PubMed:8254664).
