Cowpea chlorotic mottle virus was found to contain a minor protein component in addition to the major coat protein. This minor component, which resisted disaggregation under reducing conditions by detergents, urea, and guanidine hydrochloride, appeared to be a dimer of the coat protein as judged by molecular weight and amino acid composition. Satellite of tobacco necrosis virus was also found to contain a minor protein component, probably a dimer of coat subunits.
