Abstract

During normal maturation the majority of pulse-labeled simian virus 40 DNA progresses from chromatin to previrions and virions within 5 h. UV light inhibits this progression. In heavily irradiated cultures (108 J m-2) most of the simian virus 40 DNA synthesized immediately before irradiation remains as chromatin for at least 5 h. This inhibition of maturation seems to be a result of the inhibition of protein synthesis. The data suggest that the pool of proteins required for maturation is sufficient to convert one-third of the simian virus 40 DNA molecules labeled in a 10-min pulse (at 33 h postinfection) from chromatin to previrions and virions and is exhausted within 1 h.
