Structure of Tobacco Mosaic Virus: Radial Density Distribution in the Tobacco Mosaic Virus Particle 
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,
Structure of tobacco mosaic virus at 6.7 Å resolution
TLDR
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.

TLDR
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.
