Hepatitis C virus (HCV) encodes two glycoproteins, E1 and E2, which are thought to locate to the envelope of virus particles. These proteins form two complexes in tissue culture systems, a high molecular mass aggregate that contains intermolecular covalent bonds and a native complex in which E1 and E2 associate by non-covalent interactions. The contribution of either complex to the structures of the proteins on virus particles is not known. Using dithiothreitol to reduce i
