The perfect predator, T4 terminates its prey. The T4 virus’s double-stranded DNA genome is about kbp long [3] and encodes proteins.

T4 (T4-Bacteriophage)

Safety Every product meets or exceeds U. For ages 3 and up. When packaged, the concatemer is cut at unspecific positions of the same length, leading to several genomes that represent circular permutations of the original. Several of the genes found to be necessary bactsriofago MR in virus T4 proved to be orthologs for genes essential for recombination in prokaryoteseukaryotes and archaea.

T4 T4-Bacteriophage under a microscope!

The virus also codes for unique DNA repair mechanisms. Review bacterlofago phage T4, from the perspective of its genome Desplats C. Molecular Biology of Bacteriophage T4. Stuffed with polyester fiber fill.

T4 is capable of undergoing only a lytic lifecycle and not the lysogenic lifecycle.

Each plush microbe includes a printed card bacheriofago fun, educational and fascinating facts about the actual microbe or cell. The top figure shows the survival curves for virus T4 multicomplexes and monocomplexes with increasing dose of UV light.


Giantmicrobes are based on actual microbes, cells, organisms and other critters, only 1, times actual size! Stuffed with polyester fiber fill. Bacteriophages were used to treat bacterial infections, like gangrene and dysentery, during World War II. You try to resist, of course, but it is futile: Fun gag gift for science buffs A unique addition to any plush doll collection. Retrieved from ” https: The virions, or dormant viruses, become activated when they come in contact with a target cell.

T4 is about x 86 nanometers. Bacteripfago tail fibres are also important in recognizing host cell surface receptors, so they determine if a bacterium is within the virus’s host range. Cells of all types, not just, bacteria and their viruses, but all organisms studied, including humans, are now known to have complex biochemical processes for repairing DNA damages see DNA repair.

Speciation Among the T-Even Bacteriophages. After the life cycle is complete, the host cell bursts open and ejects the newly built viruses into the environment, destroying the host cell. The tape measure protein gp29 is present in the baseplate-tail tube complexes, but it could not be modeled.

Salvador Luria, while studying UV irradiated virus T4 indiscovered MR and proposed that the observed reactivation of damaged virus occurs by a recombination mechanism. The baseplate changes conformation and the tail sheath contracts, causing GP5 at the end of the tail tube to puncture the outer membrane of the cell.

For comparison, the survival of virus plaque forming ability of singly infected cells monocomplexes is also plotted against dose of genome damaging agent. Paralyzed with fear, you wait and watch as a tremendous, bacterifoago stinger stabs you mercilessly through the middle.


The Bacferiofago phage full genomic sequence depository Mosig, G. Each plush microbe includes a printed card with fun, educational and fascinating facts about the actual microbe or cell. University of Colorado at Boulder. T4 T4-Bacteriophage under a microscope!

T4 (T4-Bacteriophage)

T4 has a burst size of approximately viral particles per infected host. Indication of the prevalence of T4-type sequences in the wild Abedon S.

Multiplicity reactivation MR is the process bzcteriofago which two or more virus genomes, each containing inactivating genome damage, can interact within an infected cell to form a viable virus genome. J “et al” Bacteriophage attachment methods specific to T4, analysis, Overview.

This includes, for instance, T4 gene uvsX [22] which specifies a protein that has three-dimensional structural homology to RecA from Escherichia coli and the homologous protein RAD51 in eukaryotes and RadA in archaea. Escherichia virus T4 ” html.

Virus T4 genome is synthesized within the host cell using Rolling Circle Replication. Plush from all new materials. Brock Biology of Microorganisms 11th ed. The tail attaches to a host cell with the help of tail fibres. My Cart 0 item.
