    A myristoyl switch at the plasma membrane triggers cleavage and oligomerization of Mason-Pfizer monkey virus matrix protein

    Markéta Častorálová, Jakub Sýs ... Tomas Ruml
    Biochemical and instrumental analysis showed that the membrane-induced exposure of myristoyl from the MA protein of Mason-Pfizer monkey virus triggers allosteric conformational changes resulting in MA oligomerization and unfolding of the cleavage site between MA and downstream domains of Gag.
