Capsid protein - P03615 (CAPSD_BPQBE)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P03615: 5
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:27671640, PubMed:19913556). Involved in viral genome encapsidation through the interaction between a capsid protein dimer and the multiple packaging signals present in the RNA genome (PubMed:8943226, PubMed:27671640). Binding of the capsid proteins to the viral RNA induces a conformational change required for efficient T=3 shell formation (PubMed:19913556). The capsid contains also 1 copy of the A2 maturation protein (PubMed:27671640). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Homodimer (PubMed:16531233). The homodimers binds to the viral RNA via an operator hairpin, but also to many other RNA sequences in the viral genome; this interaction probably shifts the virus from the replicative to the assembly phase and ensures specific encapsidation of the viral genome (PubMed:8943226, PubMed:16531233). Interacts with the maturation protein A2 (PubMed:28111107, PubMed:29078304). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
