  • The single-stranded ribonucleic acid (ssRNA) phages are small icosahedral viruses which infect their host via F- or polar pili. The best-characterised are those infecting Escherichia coli, a Gram-negative bacterium found in the gut and faecal sewage. The ssRNA phages are members of the Leviviridae family, which includes the two genera Levivirus and Allolevivirus. The family presently comprises about 100 isolates including the well-known MS2 and Qβ coliphages.Their genome size ranges from 3400… CONTINUE READING
