The tail fibers of a virus are attached to the base plate, which is identified by the number            in the diagram.
Which of these is required for a bacteriophage to infect a bacterial cell?
  1. There needs to be a tolerable temperature in the environment.
  2. The bacterial cell needs to have the proper receptor proteins on its surface.
  3. The bacteriophage needs to have been created within the previous 24 hours.
  4. There needs to be adequate energy stored within the bacteriophage for it to inject its genetic material.
A                              is an inoculation that causes the immune system to build up resistance to a disease.
