"In particular, the capsid (CA) domain of Gag mediates many of the protein-protein interactions that drive retrovirus assembly, maturation and disassembly. Moreover, in murine leukaemia virus (MLV), sequence variation in CA confers N and B tropism that determines susceptibility to the intracellular restriction factors Fv1n and Fv1b. We have determined the structure of the N-terminal domain (NtD) of CA from B-tropic MLV. A...
