The Structural Proteins of SV40 and Polyoma Virus

  • Bernhard Hirt
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSA, volume 5)


Both SV40 and polyoma virus have as their genome a single DNA molecule containing approximately 5500 base pairs (Tai et al., 1972). Each virus can therefore code for only a small number of polypeptides and the sum of their molecular weights cannot exceed 200,000 daltons.
