Can anyone answer this question, or provide links to where I might
find the answer?

Are there any molecules that exist within the virion or capsid, and
which are uniquely found there? That is to say, molecules found in the
virion structure that are NOT found elsewhere in the body (or found at
much lower concentration in the rest of the body)? There must be some
unique molecular components that are just found in virions: I want to
know what they are!

Please consider molecules that exist within proteins structures, as
well as ones loosely included within the virion or capsid (eg, water,
except that this is not unique to the virion). Please consider dipolar
and non-polar molecules.

Please post your answer on my blog:
