Bacillus phage AP50 (formerly Phage AP50) is a species of bacteriophage that infects Bacillus anthracis bacteria.
A base pair (bp) is a unit consisting of two nucleobases bound to each other by hydrogen bonds.
A capsid is the protein shell of a virus.
A carbohydrate is a biomolecule consisting of carbon (C), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O) atoms, usually with a hydrogen–oxygen atom ratio of 2:1 (as in water); in other words, with the empirical formula (where m may be different from n).
Chloroform, or trichloromethane, is an organic compound with formula CHCl3.
Electron cryomicroscopy (CryoEM) is an electron microscopy (EM) technique where the sample is cooled to cryogenic temperatures.
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a thread-like chain of nucleotides carrying the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses.
In the fields of molecular biology and genetics, a genome is the genetic material of an organism.
Latin (Latin: lingua latīna) is a classical language belonging to the Italic branch of the Indo-European languages.
In biology and biochemistry, a lipid is a biomolecule that is soluble in nonpolar solvents.
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 nanometre (International spelling as used by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures; SI symbol: nm) or nanometer (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one billionth (short scale) of a metre (m).
Tectiviridae is a family of viruses with three genera.
The unified atomic mass unit or dalton (symbol: u, or Da) is a standard unit of mass that quantifies mass on an atomic or molecular scale (atomic mass).
A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms.
