Tomato bushy stunt virus at 5.5-Å resolution

Abstract

The coat of tomato bushy stunt virus is built from protein subunits having rigid domains connected by a flexible hinge. Two states of the hinge are present in the T = 3 icosahedral structure. Each subunit has a binding site for RNA on its inner surface.
