Abstract

Dunne et al. present the crystal structure of the adhesin tip (gp38) of the Salmonella bacteriophage S16 long tail fiber. Gp38 contains rare polyglycine type II (PGII) helices arranged as a three-layered “PGII sandwich.” Surface residues on the PGII sandwich are key determinants of phage-host interaction.
