Nature provides many examples of self- and co-assembling protein-based molecular structures like icosahedral
After selecting the design for this icosahedral
nano-cage through computer modeling, the researchers produced it in bacteria.
In the case of icosahedral
inclusions, prismatic fibers, and fracture model, we have used the algorithm proposed in  to find the distance from a point to a polyhedron.
TEM observation of the phage [PHI]MSP revealed that it had an icosahedral
head/capsid and a noncontractile tail and was similar to the members belonging to Siphoviridae family according to the guidelines of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses.
Each nanoparticle consisted of 46 Lennard-Jones particles bound to form icosahedral
Physical characterization of icosahedral
virus ultra structure, stability, and integrity using electrospray differential mobility analysis.
A typical adenovirus measures 70-90nm possessing an icosahedral
Along with other viruses in this family, Zika virus is enveloped and icosahedral
with a non-segmented, single-stranded, positive sense RNA genome.
The viruses were non-enveloped, spherical to icosahedral
and measured 22 to 28 nm in diameter.
The human papilloma viruses are a family of icosahedral
, non-enveloped viruses with a circular, double-stranded DNA genome, which has special affinity for epithelial cells.
DTI data was acquired using a single-shot Spin Echo EPI (MDDW) sequence for 20 gradient directions following an icosahedral
scheme and a b-value of 600 s x [mm.
Even the 'simple' icosahedral
protein coat of the T1 virus requires integration of 60 protein components.
