    ..These results indicate that activator binding to the upstream region of P2 late promoters compensates in part for poor sigma(70) contacts and helps to recruit RNA polymerase holoenzyme. ..
  2. Christie G, Temple L, Bartlett B, Goodwin T. Programmed translational frameshift in the bacteriophage P2 FETUD tail gene operon. J Bacteriol. 2002;184:6522-31 pubmed
    ..This arrangement shows a striking parallel to the organization in the tail gene cluster of phage lambda, despite a lack of amino acid sequence similarity between the tail gene products of these phage families...
