Capsid/spike protein, ssDNA virus (IPR016184)

Short name: Capsid/spike_ssDNA_virus

Overlapping entries


This entry represents a coat protein found in ssDNA viruses, such as the capsid protein F and the spike protein G in Microviridae [PMID: 12473449], the Parvovirus capsid protein [PMID: 15289612], the Dependovirus capsid protein [PMID: 12136130] and the Densovirus capsid protein [PMID: 9817847]. These proteins share a beta-sandwich structure consisting of 8 beta-strands in two sheets with a jelly-roll fold, although some members can have an additional 1-2 strands; characteristic interaction between the domains of this fold allows the formation of five-fold and pseudo six-fold assemblies.
