The origin of robustness: Cysteines at position 9 (C9) and C104 of the major capsid protein (VP1) of simian virus 40 are found to play essential roles in stablizing the viral protein cage as scaffold for assembly of inorganic nanoparticles. The presence of an inorganic core also helps the assembly and stabilization of the protein cage.
