In this thesis we focus on the mechanistic understanding of two membrane mediated biological processes: retroviral assembly and endolysin PlyC plasma membrane translocation. Retroviral Gag polyprotein is the structural determinant that assembles in a protein lattice on the hosts plasma membrane to trigger formation of the viral protein/membrane shell.
