Abstract

φ6 bacteriophage from Pseudomonas phaseolicola has a pleomorphic shape due to an outer layer of lipid. This layer was removed with organic solvents or sodium dodecyl sulfate revealing a 50-nm cubic particle. The virus was found only in the central portion of the cell and not near the cell wall.
