Portal protein

Gene

8

Organism
Enterobacteria phage T3 (Bacteriophage T3)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Protein inferred from homologyi

Functioni

Forms the portal vertex of the capsid. This portal plays critical roles in head assembly, genome packaging, neck/tail attachment, and genome ejection. The portal protein multimerizes as a single ring-shaped homododecamer arranged around a central channel.UniRule annotation
