Interaction and Mixed Aggregation of Proteins from Tobacco Mosaic Virus Strains
Description:
This article examines the differences in polypeptide chain structure in various forms of TMV. The author explores the significance of fundamental differences in the composition and sequence of amino acids between the viruses and the fundamental similarity that allows them to "associate near their respective isoelectric points in an orderly way." The formation of mixed aggregates is also partly significant because Nirenberg used work on TMV protein configuration and polypeptide chain formation in different TMV strains as evidence for a non-overlapping code.
Sarkar suggested that "Profiles in Science" include the following statement regarding this article: "This publication contains the first experimental data in support of a "trimer configuration" of TMV-protein, as postulated later by D.L.D. Casper (Adv. Protein Chem. 18:37, 1963) on theoretical considerations and crystallographic principles. Further experimental proof was offered on the basis of osmotic pressure measurements by K. Banerjee and M.A. Lauffer (Biochemistry 5: 1957, 1966)."
