Abstract

Mobile carbons of isotopically enriched Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) and its protein are observed by normal and Convolution Difference (CD) 90.5 13C FT NMR. RNA binding to protein-disks or uptake of protons by a carboxylcage in protein-rods broadens the main part of the resonances beyond detection due to subunit immobilization.
