Filamentous bacteriophage (Inovirus) is a simple and well-characterized model system. The phage particle, or virion, is about 60 angstroms in diameter and several thousand angstrom units long. The virions are assembled at the bacterial membrane as they extrude out of the host without killing it, an example of specific transport of nucleoprotein assemblages across membranes. The Ff group (fd, f1 and M13) has been especially widely studied. Models of virion assembly have been proposed based on a… CONTINUE READING
