tobacco mosaic virus

tobacco mosaic virus
Plant RNA virus, the first to be isolated. Consists of a single central strand of RNA (a helix of 6500 nucleotides) enclosed within a coat consisting of 2130 identical capsomeres that, in the absence of the RNA, will self-assemble into a cylinder similar to the normal virus but of indeterminate length. Causes mottling of the leaves of the tobacco plant.
