Abstract:

Small angle neutron scattering SANS has been used to extend the structural characterization of the MS2 phage by examining its physical characteristics in solution. The impact of small molecular weight impurities of the resolution of structural data obtained by SANS of the bacteriophage MS2 distorts the resolution and sharpness of contrast variation peaks. However, the position of the visible peaks is unchanged contaminated samples when compared to pure MS2 samples.
