Publisher Summary The chapter describes a critical analysis of the molecular weight of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) and with polymerization of TMV protein. TMV has a very high molecular weight and measurements of double refraction of flow led to the conclusion that the particles are rod-shaped. The molecular weight of TMV has been determined adequately by physicochemical methods and measurements with the electron microscope. These yielded with fair uniformity a value close to 40 million. A value… CONTINUE READING
