During evolution, viruses have optimized the interaction with host factors to increase the efficiency of fundamental processes such as DNA replication. Bacteriophage 29 protein p1 is a membrane-associated protein that forms large protofilament sheets that resemble eukaryotic tubulin and bacterial filamenting temperature-sensitive mutant Z protein (FtsZ) polymers. In the absence of protein p1, phage 29 DNA replication is impaired. Here we show that a functional fusion of protein p1 to YFP… CONTINUE READING
