Role of gene 8 product in morphogenesis of bacteriophage T3.


The product of gene 8 (gp8) of T3 phage is one of the minor head proteins located at the phage head-tail junction. To determine the role of gp8, an amber (8-) and four temperature-sensitive mutants (ts8) were characterized by sedimentation analysis, polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and extract complementation. Neither DNA-containing particles nor empty… (More)
