Polypeptide Structure of Bovine Enteritic Coronavirus: Comparison between a Wild Strain Purified from Feces and a HRT 18 Cell Adapted Strain
Structural proteins of many of the members of the coronaviridae have been already studied (for reviews see 1). The variety of their number and size, the variability in the data can be accounted for by the different methods used in purification of the virions, protein dissociation and detection on polyacrylamide gel. Furthermore the origin of the virus from animal or from cell cultures can possibly play a role in the difference observed for the same virus.
