Abstract

Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) packaging requires prenylation of the HDV large protein (p27), as well as a direct protein–protein interaction between HDV proteins and hepatitis B virus (HBV) envelope protein domains. To investigate this interaction, we have analysed the binding capacity of baculovirusexpressed delta p24 and p27 proteins to synthetic peptides specific for the HBV envelope. Although a higher degree of binding was observed with p27, both p24 and p27 could bind HBV envelope peptides. One such peptide corresponded to residues 56–80 located in the cytosolic loop of the small HBV envelope protein, and another corresponded to 23 carboxy-terminal residues of the pre-S1 specific to the large HBV envelope protein.
