Viral baseplate protein

The baseplate is the most distal part of the tail of Myoviridae and Siphoviridae bacterial viruses. It acts as a multiprotein molecular machine that binds to the host cell entry receptor, controls tail sheath contraction (in Myoviridae) and initiate genome ejection. Genome ejection is usually triggered by a change in the baseplate conformation .
