phiX174 utilizes two scaffolding proteins during morphogenesis, an internal protein (B) and an external protein (D). The B protein induces a conformational change in coat protein pentamers, enabling them to interact with both spike and external scaffolding proteins. While functions of the carboxyl terminus of protein B have been defined, the functions of the amino terminus remain obscure. To investigate the morphogenetic functions of the amino terminus, several 5' deleted genes were constructed… CONTINUE READING
