Structure of the RNA in tobacco mosaic virus.
Structure of RNA and RNA binding site in tobacco mosaic virus from 4-Å map calculated from X-ray fibre diagrams
The structure of tobacco mosaic virus has been solved to a resolution of 4 Å using fibre diffraction methods. The general fold of the protein is clear, the conformation may be deduced in many places,

A typical infective rod‐shaped particle of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is composed of ribonucleic acid, of molecular weight about 2,000,000 and about 2200 helically arranged protein sub‐units, each
Structure of tobacco mosaic virus at 6.7 Å resolution
The electron density distribution of tobacco mosaic virus has been determined by analysis of the X-ray diffraction pattern given by oriented gels of the virus by separation of overlapping Bessel function terms by a technique analogous to crystallographic isomorphous replacement.

Examination of the structures of TMV, cucumber green mottle mosaic virus and ribgrass mosaic virus, and site-directed mutagenesis experiments in which carboxylate groups were changed to the corresponding amides showed that initial stages of disassembly are driven by complex electrostatic interactions involving at least seven car boxylate side-chains and a phosphate group.
The structure of the protein disk of tobacco mosaic virus to 5 Å resolution
An electron density map of the TMV disk at 5 Å resolution has been obtained using isomorphous replacement and non-crystallographic symmetry. The polypeptide chain can be traced with little ambiguity.
A prediction of the structure of tobacco-mosaic-virus protein.
The location of amino acid residues within the tobacco mosaic virus protein subunit is discussed and an outline of the main features of the inner third of subunit to be suggested.
Tobacco Mosaic Virus: Pioneering Research for a Century
One century ago, M. Beijerinck contended that the filterable agent of tobacco mosaic disease was neither a bacterium nor any corpuscular body, but rather that it was a contagium vivum fluidum, followed by Mayer's path-breaking work on tobacco.


An Infectious Nucleoprotein from Tobacco Mosaic Virus
By reaggregation of these sub-units, a protein was obtained that had the same size and shape as the virus itself, but was not infectious1.
