MAGNITUDE OF CARBON IN DIFFERENT VIRAL PROTEINSParul Johri1*, Mala Trivedi and Mohammed Haris Siddiqui
Carbon is the only element that dominates the hydrophobic interactions and protein evolves based on their carbon content. The carbon distribution profiling along the protein chain is the most significant step towards understanding the biological reactions. Here we describe the role of carbon in the complete set of protein sequences in Simian virus 40 (SV 40), Enterobacteria phage (M13) and Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV). Each of these viruses tends to have a fixed percentage of carbon atom in their proteins. Also the carbon atom percentage tends to be at higher end in the case of virulent proteins. This correlation of carbon atom with viruses can be further explored for their classification and nature of action.
