The Caudovirales are an order of viruses also known as the tailed bacteriophages (cauda is Latin for "tail").
Enterobacteria phage T2 is a virus that infects and kills E. coli.
Enterobacteria phage T4 is a bacteriophage that infects Escherichia coli bacteria.
Gram-negative bacteria are bacteria that do not retain the crystal violet stain used in the gram-staining method of bacterial differentiation.
The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) authorizes and organizes the taxonomic classification of and the nomenclatures for viruses.
Lysins, also known as endolysins or murein hydrolases, are hydrolytic enzymes produced by bacteriophages in order to cleave the host's cell wall during the final stage of the lytic cycle.
The Myoviridae is a family of bacteriophages in the order Caudovirales.
A spheroid, or ellipsoid of revolution, is a quadric surface obtained by rotating an ellipse about one of its principal axes; in other words, an ellipsoid with two equal semi-diameters.
The T4 Holin Family is a group of putative pore-forming proteins that does not belong to one of the seven holin superfamilies.
Tevenvirinae is a subfamily of viruses in the order Caudovirales, in the family Myoviridae.
Some viruses (e.g. HIV and many animal viruses) have viral envelopes covering their protective protein capsids.
A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms.
