1 The transmembrane morphogenesis protein gp 1 of 2 filamentous phages contains Walker A and Walker B 3 motifs essential for phage assembly . 4


In contrast to lytic phages, filamentous phages are assembled in the inner membrane and 14 secreted across the bacterial envelope without killing the host. For assembly and extrusion of the 15 phage across the host cell wall, filamentous phages code for membrane-embedded morphogenesis 16 proteins. In the outer membrane of E. coli, the protein gp4 forms a… (More)
