Towards determining a high-resolution structure of the coat proteins on PR772 (English)
The Virus PR772 infects E. Coli and has an icosahedral shape with a inner lipid membrane. The diameter of the virus is 66 nm and a purification of the virus gave 0.8 mg/mL pure viral particles. The structures of the coat proteins of the virus PR772 are still unknown and it would be interesting to study them. Coat proteins will be expressed in a larger amount for crystallization. X-ray crystallography can, in principle, be used to determine high-resolution structures of the coat proteins, P6 and P30.
