Abstract

Sequence analysis of the S protein of hepatitis B virus (HBV) reveals a stretch of 23 hydrophobic amino acids in the amino-terminal region which shows a high degree of similarity with known fusogenic peptides from other viruses. Additionally, this sequence also appears to be highly conserved within the hepadnavirus family. Taken together, the different criteria used in this work suggest fusogenic activity in the amino-terminal region of the S protein of the envelope of HBV.
