Abstract

Summary

Complexes of substructural elements of bacteriophage T4 (baseplates, baseplate-core complexes) with long tail fibres were obtained for the first time by complementation . A study of the organization of the complexes was carried out by PAGE, electron microscopy and sedimentation analysis. About 90% of baseplates and baseplate-core complexes were combined with fibres. However, the number of the attached fibres varied from one to six. On the basis of the data obtained, we proposed that the attachment of long tail fibres can occur before the assembly of the whole bacteriophage.
