Abstract

SUMMARY

By combining the results of Fourier transform calculations from digitized electron micrographs and molecular volume calculations based on the amino acid composition and RNA content of narcissus mosaic virus particles, firm evidence that there are 8.8 protein subunits per turn of the helix in the virus particles was obtained.
