Additional Information
The African cassava mosaic virus capsid protein is (AV1), as the name suggests, forms the viral capsid and encapsulates the viral genome (binds single stranded DNA). The protein also allows for viral entry into cell and shuttles viral DNA into and out of the nucleus. Research has suggested that the capsid structure is important for insect transmission.
