MS2 virus protein

Necklace

Pendant of MS2 coat protein in 1.2 mm silver wire.

MS2 is a bacterial virus. This jewelry shows one of 180 identical coat proteins forming the viral shell that protects the nucleic acid. This was my first crystal structure and the first three-dimensional structure of a bacterial virus coat protein.
