Microviridae, a family divided: isolation, characterization, and genome sequence of phiMH2K, a bacteriophage of the obligate intracellular parasitic bacterium Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus.
A novel single-stranded DNA phage, phiMH2K, of Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus was isolated, characterized, and sequenced. This phage is a member of the Microviridae, a family typified by bacteriophageExpand

The role of scaffolding proteins in the assembly of the small, single-stranded DNA virus phiX174.
An empty precursor particle called the procapsid is formed during assembly of the single-stranded DNA bacteriophage phiX174. Assembly of the phiX174 procapsid requires the presence of the twoExpand

Structure of a viral procapsid with molecular scaffolding
The assembly of a macromolecular structure proceeds along an ordered morphogenetic pathway, and is accomplished by the switching of proteins between discrete conformations as they are added to theExpand

Second-site suppressors of a cold-sensitive prohead accessory protein of bacteriophage phi X174.
This study describes the isolation of second-site suppressors which correct for the defects associated with cold-sensitive (cs) prohead accessory proteins of bacteriophage phi X174. FiveExpand

Biological properties and cell tropism of Chp2, a bacteriophage of the obligate intracellular bacterium Chlamydophila abortus.
A number of bacteriophages belonging to the Microviridae have been described infecting chlamydiae. Phylogenetic studies divide the Chlamydiaceae into two distinct genera, Chlamydia and Chlamydophila,Expand

Molecular Characterization of a Bacteriophage (Chp2) from Chlamydia psittaci
ABSTRACT Comparisons of the proteome of abortifacient Chlamydia psittaci isolates from sheep by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis identified a novel abundant protein with a molecular mass of 61.4Expand

Isolation, Molecular Characterisation and Genome Sequence of a Bacteriophage (Chp3) from Chlamydophila pecorum
Chlamydiae are obligate intracellular pathogens that have a unique developmental cycle. Thirty nine viable isolates representing all nine currently recognised chlamydial species were screened byExpand

Microviridae: Microviruses and Gokushoviruses
Members of the Microviridae comprise two subfamilies. The microviruses (Greek for small), which infect free-living bacteria, are among the fastest known replicating viruses. Gokushoviruses (JapaneseExpand

Icosahedral bacteriophage ΦX174 forms a tail for DNA transport during infection
Prokaryotic viruses have evolved various mechanisms to transport their genomes across bacterial cell walls. Many bacteriophages use a tail to perform this function, whereas tail-less phages rely onExpand
