1 Bacterial viruses

2 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

5 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. Bacteriophage T4 Figure 11.4
