The Mu phage particle is structurally similar to that of the T-even phages, consisting of an icosahedral head and contractile tail. This study continues an analysis of the morphogenesis of the Mu phage particle by defining the structural defects resulting from mutations in specific Mu genes. Defective lysates produced by induction of 55 amber mutants, representing 24 essential genes, were examined in the electron microscope and categorized into eight classes based on the observed phage-related… CONTINUE READING
