This letter describes the biomimetic self-assembly of mm-sized polyhedra into helical aggregates. The system used two orthogonal, capillary interactions that acted in parallel. The design of the self-assembly process, and of the resulting structures, was modeled on the formation and structure of tobacco mosaic virus. The self-assembled, helical aggregates carried one, two, or four isolated, electrical circuits. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.

    The infectivity of a sample of pure tobacco mosaic virus prepared from infective juice by precipitation at its iso-electric point and suspended in buffer solution at pH 4 has been measured over a period of twelve years (1935-1947). The infectivity as measured by the number of primary lesions...

    CaTin1 was expressed relatively early in the TMV-inoculated leaves of hot pepper which is resistant to TMV-P0 infection. Interestingly, there was another homologous gene (CaTin1-2) located in front of CaTin1 in a head-to-head fashion and they shared a single promoter. The expression profile of...
