Short name: Phage_T7-like_viron_assmbl

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family of proteins represents the gene product 7.3 from T7 bacteriophage and T7-like phages. The protein is localised to the tail and is thought to be important in virion assembly. Particles assembled in the absence of the protein fail to adsorb to cells [PMID: 16054667].
