Figure 4

Turbidity assay showing the effects of CAp24 mutations on in vitro CA assembly. Turbidity assay showing the increase in light absorbance after addition of 2.0 M NaCl to recombinantly produced mutant and wild type CAp24 protein (100 μM) reflecting the assembly of the CAp24 protein into tubular structures. Green, D51E; red, D51Q; blue, wild type; pink, D51N. The structures of polymerized CAp24 structures were also analyzed by transmission electron microscopy (Figure 5).
