Capsid protein, T4-like bacteriophage-like (IPR010762)

Short name: Gp23/Gp24_T4-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family contains a number of capsid Gp23 and Gp24 proteins approximately 500 residues long, mainly from T4-like bacteriophages. Bacteriophage T4 Gp24 is a capsid protein that self-associates to form 11 pentons, building the T=13 laevo capsid in association with 160 hexamers of gp23* and one dodecamer of gp20 [PMID: 15071181].
