A Coat Protein of the Bacteriophage M13

  title={A Coat Protein of the Bacteriophage M13},
  author={S. Jazwinski and R. Marco and Arthi},
Several molecules of a protein specified by gene 3 of M13 comprise a minor fraction of the phage coat and have been assigned a role in adsorption to the bacterial cell. We find that the gene-3 protein molecules of the virion are fully conserved in phage that have at- tached irreversibly to the host cell, and they form a complex with the phage DNA when it has been converted to a duplex replicative form. In cells infected at a restric- tive temperature with a thermosensitive mutant in gene 3… Expand
