Gene 3 of bacteriophage T4 participates at a late stage in the T4 tail assembly pathway, but the hypothetical protein product, gp3, has never been identified in extracts of infected cells or in any tail assembly intermediate. In order to overcome this difficulty, we expressed gp3 in a high-efficiency plasmid expression vector and subsequently purified it for further analysis. The N-terminal sequence of the purified protein showed that the initial methionine had been removed. Variant C-terminal… CONTINUE READING
