Disease relevance of HP2p18

  • The satellite bacteriophage P4 does not have genes coding for any major structural proteins, but assembles a capsid from the gene products of bacteriophage P2 [1].
  • These stimulated proteins include the major P2 capsid protein (N gene product) and a major component of the P2 phage tail (FII gene product) [2].
  • The capsid protein of bacteriophage P2, encoded by the N gene, can assemble into icosahedral capsids of two possible sizes, with diameters of 60 and 45 nm, respectively [3].
