Abstract

Hepatitis B virus assembly begins with the packaging of an RNA pregenome into intracellular nucleocapsids, with subsequent reverse transcription within these nucleocapsids converting the RNA into a characteristic, partially double-stranded DNA, which, alone, is found in enveloped extracellular virions as the viral genome. Using a synchronized replication system for the duck hepatitis B virus, together with a stringent two-step assay for virion secretion, we demonstrate that this selective genome secretion results from an intrinsic secretion competence gained only by the nucleocapsids at the late stage of reverse transcription.
