Fine structure of the Rauscher leukemia virus as revealed by incubation in snake venom



Fine structure of the Rauscher leukemia virus as revealed by incubation in snake venom



Virology 30(4): 623-630



Purified Rauscher leukemia virus was incubated in reconstituted lyophilized snake venom. Examination of the negatively stained venom-treated virus preparations showed the outer envelopes of most of the particles to be ruptured, revealing capsids the circumference of which showed 25-30 capsomeres 100 A in length and 75-80 A in width. Prolonged incubation in venom resulted in modification of the capsids of most of the particles and revealed a shell or framework penetrated with holes arranged in a hexagonal array. These results suggest that the capsids of Rauscher leukemia virus are covered with a coat of material which is removed by incubation in snake venom.
