Structure of turnip crinkle virus. III. Identification of a unique coat protein dimer



Structure of turnip crinkle virus. III. Identification of a unique coat protein dimer



Journal of Molecular Biology 191(4): 721-725



The minor structural protein (p80), found in about one copy per virion in turnip crinkle virus (TCV), is shown by amino acid analysis and peptide mapping to be a covalent dimer of the major coat protein (p40). The covalent linkage occurs near the N termini of the crosslinked chains. These data suggest that TGV and related viruses contain 178 copies of p40 (89 non-covalent dimers) and one copy of p80 (covalent dimer of two additional p40 chains). The presence of p80 in the salt-stable RNA-protein complex formed when TCV dissociates, as described in an accompanying paper, indicates that the covalent modification affects binding to RNA. We suggest that p80 might be the final dimer to be incorporated into the shell and that it might also be the site for initiation of uncoating.
