    The major structural components of the contractile tail of bacteriophage P2 are proteins FI and FII, which are believed to be the tail sheath and tube proteins, respectively...

    ..The 5' ends of the P2 late mRNAs are the same during P4 transactivation as during normal P2 late gene expression. Thus, the regulation of P2 late gene expression by P4 does not involve altered promoter selection...
