Viral tail protein

The tail of Caudovirales bacterial viruses serves as an adsorption device that specifically recognizes the target bacteria. It often bears a cell wall perforating device, and performs genome delivery. Three families are distinguished by the morphology of their tail: Myoviridae (long contractile tail), Podoviridae (short non-contractile tail), and Siphoviridae (long flexible non-contractile tail) .
