Neutron small-angle scattering in H2O/D20 buffers has been used to investigate the radial distribution of protein and RNA in the compact and swollen forms of southern bean mosaic virus (SBMV). The architecture of the particle is described by a set of four concentric shells. Compact SBMV was found to consist of a tightly packed outer protein shell, with the RNA and about 15% of the protein at the interior of the particle. The protein penetrates as deeply as the RNA toward the center. This… CONTINUE READING
