Analysis of the collar-whisker structure of temperate lactococcal bacteriophage TP901-1

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Proteins homologous to the protein NPS (neck passage structure) are widespread among lactococcal phages. We investigated the hypothesis that NPS is involved in the infection of phage TP901-1 by analysis of an NPS mutant. NPS was determined to form a collar-whisker complex but was shown to be nonessential for infection, phage assembly, and stability.
