Figure 3

Electron micrographs of C. jejuni bacteriophages F362 (a and b) and F386 (c and d).

a. Normal phage particle with extended tail and folded-up fibers. b. Phage particle with contracted tail sticking in small globular vesicles. Note the tail fibers are no longer visible. c. Normal phage particle with extended tail and flexible fibers with attached small terminal globular structures. d. Phage particle with contracted tail. Note tail fibers are still visible. Phages were stained with 2% uranyl acetate and examined on a Tecnai 10 transmission electron microscope.
