Bacteriophage T4 fibritin is a triple-stranded, parallel, segmented alpha-helical coiled-coil protein. Earlier we showed that the C-terminal globular domain (foldon) of fibritin is essential for correct trimerization and folding of the protein. We constructed the chimerical fusion protein W31 in which the fibritin foldon sequence is followed by the small globular non-alpha-helical protein gp31 of the T4 phage. We showed that the foldon is capable of trimerization in the absence of the coiled… CONTINUE READING
