Product Description
Bacteriophage Qβ is an icosahedral virus with a diameter of 25 nm. Its host is Escherichia coli. Qβ enters its host cell after binding to the side of the F pilus. The genome of Qβ is 4215 nucleotides long. The genome has three open reading frames and encodes four proteins: A1, A2, CP and qβ replicase. The genome is highly structured, which regulates gene expression and protects the genome from host RNases. RNA from Bacteriophage Qβ was used by Sol Spiegelman in experiments that favored faster replication, and thus shorter strands of RNA. He ended up with Spiegelman's Monster, an RNA chain of only 218 nucleotides that is also self-replicating.
