Coli bacteriophages. The T-phages are complex DNA viruses; MS2 and ␾6 are RNA viruses, with ␾6 enveloped. Two other groups of infectious agents are also considered “viruses” but have unique morphologies. The first are viroids, which are devoid of protein and appear to consist of naked RNA molecules. Viroids are known to infect only higher plants and have been identified as the causes of a number of crop diseases. It is interesting that their sequences do not encode proteins and that they are dependent on the host for replication in the cell nucleus.

Genitalium, M. 8 General differentiation of types of bacteria based on their microscopic morphologies and reactions to Gram staining Bacterial structure Cocci Bacilli (rods) The basic structure of cell wall-containing bacteria consists of an outer cell wall and an inner cell membrane surrounding the internal cytoplasm (Fig. 6). The cell surface can also contain additional structures, such as pili, flagella, and capsules, depending on the bacterial species and its growth conditions. The cell membrane is similar to that in mycoplasmas and consists of a phospholipid bilayer (without sterols) and associated proteins.
