Morphogenesis protein 1
Late protein GP13
Including the following 2 domains:
The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
May serve as a plug to restrain the highly pressurized packaged genome and thus would be the first virion protein to contact the host cell wall, degrading the peptidoglycan layer and thereby facilitating viral genome entry into the host bacteria. Acts probably as a multifunctional enzyme that degrades N-acetylglucosamine polymers (in vitro) and cleaves the peptide cross-links of the host cell wall. Essential for the tail assembly.
Glycosyl hydrolase 24 family; Peptidase M23B family
