Method The molecular weight of BMV was calculated from the Svedberg equation. From the sedimentation and diffusion coefficients (BNID 105894) at a virus concentration of 0.42% and the partial specific volume, the molecular weight was found to be 4.6x10^6Da. For D and partial specific volume see bottom of page 3
