Analysis of the collar-whisker structure of temperate lactococcal bacteriophage TP901-1
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › peer-review
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.
