Bacteriophage Ø29 protein p6: an architectural protein involved in genome organization, replication and control of transcription.


Protein p6 of B. subtilis bacteriophage Ø29 binds to DNA forming a nucleoprotein complex in which the DNA wraps a protein core forming a right-handed superhelix, therefore restraining positive supercoiling and compacting the DNA. The protein does not specifically recognize a nucleotide sequence but rather a structural feature and it binds as a dimer through… (More)
