Abstract

Circular dichroism (CD) measurements on the coat protein of narcissus mosaic virus particles show that the dominant secondary structure is the α-helix, with a 45 (±2)% content. The β-sheet content is much lower at 5 (±3)%. Both values are essentially the same as those found in potato virus X coat protein. The CD results are used to assess the results of secondary structure prediction methods.
