    Abstract

    The structural proteins in a cyanobacterial virus, cyanophage (S-PM2), were studied. The mass spectrometric analysis was done to identify the genes that code for the structural proteins of the virus. Seven tryptic peptides were identified of which three were selected for collision induced decomposition (CID) analysis. The gene in the S-PM2 virus was identified by matching the amino acid sequence tags obtained for the three peptides against the genome open reading frames (ORF).
