Abstract

Pseudomonas phaseolicola cells synchronously infected with phi6 were fixed and embedded by several procedures. The diameter of phi6 measured 75 nm and its nucleocapsid 60 nm. Virus nucleocapsids were icosahedral and surrounded by a double membrane. In planar sections the nucleic acid appeared as a hexagonal ring and in cross sections as two angular structures.
