Abstract

Summary

Assembly of the coat protein subunits of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) into 20S aggregates (‘disks’) and long helices was monitored by light scattering and electron microscopy. The anti-microtubule agent methyl benzimidazol-2-yl carbamate, which inhibits TMV multiplication , did not affect assembly of coat protein . In contrast, the anti-microtubule agents colchicine and vinblastine inhibited disk formation, but stimulated rod elongation from coat protein subunits . Both agents also disrupted preformed disks. Vinblastine inhibited virus multiplication in leaf tissue, but colchicine did not.
