Bacterial viruses

Very complex shape, requiring 20 gene products for assembly

- Capsid (head), contains linear dsDNA genome

- Tail, consists of sheath plus internal tube

Bacteriophage T4

Figure 11.2


Bacterial viruses

Phage T4 binds to E. coli by contact between its tail fibers and the outer membrane.

- A conformational change causes sheath to contract and inject the genome into the cell.

Bacterial viruses

Progeny genomes are linked in a concatemer.

- Cut with an offset, so that individual linear genomes have slight overlaps

Bacterial viruses

Each phage particle is assembled by convergence of three pathways involving head, tail, and tail fibers.
