Comments [?]

case <OC:Lambdavirus>
Function Serves as a ruler that controls the length of tail by stopping the tail tube polymerization and is probably released from the tail shaft during infection to facilitate DNA translocation into the host cell. Assembles into a multimeric linear form probably arranged as a six-stranded coil of alpha-helices and stabilized by the covering tail assembly proteins G and GT. Its C-terminus fixes the tail tip complex (J, I, L, K), thereby forming the tail assembly initiator complex. Tail tube proteins polymerize around the tape measure protein, displacing the tail assembly proteins G and GT. When the tail reaches the length specified by the tape measure protein, it stops and becomes capped by the tail terminator protein. Upon tail assembly, tape measure protein is cleaved into a form called H*, that plays a role later during virion entry in a new cell. Once assembled, the virion is released and can infect new cell by binding to the entry receptor. After opening of a pore on the external membrane, the entry protein H* protein is probably released in the periplasmic space for successfull DNA injection.
Subunit Interacts with the tail initiator complex presumably through its C-terminus domain. Interacts with the tail assembly protein G. Interacts with the tail assembly protein GT.
Subcellular location Virion. Note=There are 6 copies of entry protein H* per mature phage.
Ptm Cleaved into mature protein H* by an unidentified protease.
