Electron Cryomicroscopy Comparison of the Architectures of the Enveloped Bacteriophages φ{symbol}6 and φ{symbol}8

Abstract:

The enveloped dsRNA bacteriophages φ{symbol}6 and φ{symbol}8 are the two most distantly related members of the Cystoviridae family. Their structure and function are similar to that of the Reoviridae but their assembly can be conveniently studied in vitro. Electron cryomicroscopy and three-dimensional icosahedral reconstruction were used to determine the structures of the φ{symbol}6 virion (14 Å resolution), φ{symbol}8 virion (18 Å resolution), and φ{symbol}8 core (8.5 Å resolution). Spikes pr...
