Abstract

SUMMARY

The three-dimensional reconstruction from electron micrographs of a virus isolated from larvae of the pine emperor moth, β virus, shows that its surface structure is based on the T = 4 icosahedral surface lattice. The 240 protein subunits are clustered in trimers with the four trimers per icosahedral face approximately planar but with deep grooves between adjacent faces.
