Abstract

Since its first isolation in a pure crystalline form by W.M. Stanley in 1935, tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) has been at the forefront of biochemical research activity. The substance appeared as a protein-like material which upon injection into healthy tobacco plants produced the well defined infective pattern. Through many modes of analytical measurement the physical properties of TMV have been elucidated, and present knowledge of the virus is quite extensive.
