Viral tail fiber protein

A variable number of fibers are attached to the distal part of the tail of caudovirales bacterial viruses. Tail fibers are responsible for the specific, albeit reversible primary attachment to host cell.

Due to high selective pressure, tail fiber genes evolve more rapidly than other phage genes and exchanges occur via horizontal transfer among phages crossing host phylogenetic boundaries .
