The distal part of the long tail fibers of the Escherichia coli phage T4 consists of a dimer of protein 37. A fragment of the corresponding gene, encoding 253 amino acids, was inserted into several different sites within the cloned gene for the 325-residue outer membrane protein OmpA. In plasmid pTU T4-5 the fragment was inserted once and in pTU T4-10 tandemly twice between the codons for residues 153 and 154 of the OmpA protein. In pTU T4-22 two fragments were present, in tandem, between the… CONTINUE READING
