WHAT DOES BACTERIOPHAGE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

bacteriophage

Bacteriophage

A bacteriophage /ˈbækˈtɪər.i.oʊˌfeɪdʒ/ is a virus that infects and replicates within and around the bacteria and causes it to explode. The term is derived from 'bacteria' and the Greek φαγεῖν phagein "to devour". Bacteriophages are composed of proteins that encapsulate a DNA or RNA genome, and may have relatively simple or elaborate structures. Their genomes may encode as few as four genes, and as many as hundreds of genes. Phage replicate around the virus following the injection of their genome into the cytoplasm. Bacteriophage are among the most common and diverse entities in the biosphere. Phages are widely distributed in locations populated by bacterial hosts, such as soil or the intestines of animals. One of the densest natural sources for phages and other viruses is sea water, where up to 9×108 virions per milliliter have been found in microbial mats at the surface, and up to 70% of marine bacteria may be infected by phages. They have been used for over 90 years as an alternative to antibiotics in the former Soviet Union and Central Europe, as well as in France.

Definition of bacteriophage in the English dictionary
