Dr. Petr Leiman Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Sealy Center for Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston Title: "Function, structure, and evolution of phage spike tip proteins" Abstract:The process of protein and DNA translocation across lipid membranes is central to the function of any organism. Contractile injection systems, which include bacteriophage tails, Type VI Secretion System, R-type pyocins, Photorhabdus Virulence Cassette, Serratia antifeeding prophage, and others, translocate their substrates using a rigid tube/contractile sheath…
