Caption: Computer graphic representing fifteen chemically identical polypeptide chains which make up 1/12th of the complete isohedral carnation mottle virus (CMV). Five of the chains are arranged around the five-fold symmetry axis (blue). These are sur- rounded by an outer layer of ten chains (green). The determination of this structure was achieved using X-ray diffraction crystallography, a method involving the X-ray bombardment of a crystallized sample of the substance. CMV infects a wide range of plants. It is a useful model system as it possesses one of the simplest genome systems of any eukaryotic infectious agent.
