Family

Major coat protein, Inovirus-type (IPR008020)

Short name: Major_coat_inovirus

Family relationships

None.

Description

The major coat protein in the capsid of filamentous bacteriophage forms a helical assembly of about 7000 identical protomers, with each protomer comprised of 46 amino acids, after the cleavage of the signal peptide. Each protomer forms a slightly curved helix that combines to form a tubular structure that encapsulates the viral DNA [PMID: 10666593].
