Nonionic detergent treatments released a nucleocapsid from the enveloped bacteriophage 06. The nucleocapsid sedimented at nearly the same rate as the whole phage in sucrose density gradients, but the buoyant density in Cs2SO4 changed from 1.22 g/cm3 for the whole phage to 1.33 g/cm3 for the nucleocapsid.
