Part of the The Viruses book series (VIRS)

Abstract

The Bromo-, Cucumo-, Ilar-, and alfalfa mosaic viruses are grouped together in this volume as they contain four distinct sizes of RNA molecules which can be separated by Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Abbreviations used for the various viruses discussed in the text are listed below.* This chapter will concentrate on the virion particle structures and is divided into two major sections. The first reviews current knowledge of the atomic resolution structures for the capsid proteins of three spherical, icosahedral plant viruses, namely, TBSV, SBMV, and STNV. The second section presents detailed empirical results and related references for each of the four viral classes. Table VI of Chapter 1 lists the gross structural parameters for the Bromo, Cucumo, alfalfa mosaaic, and Ilarvirus groups.
