Structure of bacteriophage T4 fibritin: a segmented coiled coil and the role of the C-terminal domain.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Oligomeric coiled-coil motifs are found in numerous protein structures; among them is fibritin, a structural protein of bacteriophage T4, which belongs to a class of chaperones that catalyze a specific phage-assembly process. Fibritin promotes the assembly of the long tail fibers and their subsequent attachment to the tail baseplate; it is also a… (More)
